As the communists have been saying; never let a good crisis go to waste. It follows logically then that they should never waste the opportunity to manufacture a good crisis. It’s just good policy. It’s what you do if you want to keep the funding coming in.

[The manufacturing of crises not limited to communists. The “War on Drugs” was created by a conservative hero. History is filled with them by Fascists, the Green Party and probably nearly every political party.
I always marvel at the number of people that seem to think all solutions involve “doing something”. I suspect it is in our genetic code. The witch doctor has to dance before it will rain and a virgin has to be sacrificed to prevent the volcano from exploding, right?
I think Libertarians could legitimately claim any number of crises exist but nearly everyone ignores them even if it is true. Probably because the solutions are to defund action rather than to fund action. Solutions that involve not “doing something” instead of more “doing something” don’t resonate with the majority of people. At some level our politicians/witch-doctors know this and always continue dancing and sacrificing virgins.—Joe]
