Free Candy

The other night, Trevor Noah offered a thoughtful assessment of the current post-George Floyd moment. But I’m not convinced the looting protesters are approaching things with the same level of introspection. I have trouble believing that they’re thinking in terms of a violated social contract, as they break windows and help themselves at the local Target.

From all appearances, it looks more like, “Hey! Free stuff! And no cops anywhere in sight!”
