“It’s a terrible situation in Boston. And, unfortunately, … one gets the sense that this is more reflective of the ‘new normal,’ if you will,” he explained. “So much of society is changing so rapidly. We talk about a ‘new normal’ when it comes t0 climate change and adjusting to a change in the weather patterns. ‘New normal’ when it comes to public security in a post-9/11 world. Where these random acts of violence, which at one time were implausible, now seem all-too-frequent.”
Correct us if we are wrong but might this “New Normal” be a byproduct of an over-weaning , ineffective and corrupt government that takes more and more from society and contributes less and less to it’s actual well-being ?
It strikes us that this contrived idea of a “new normal” is a statist tool to justify ever-increasing government intrusion into the daily lives of Americans all in the name of “public safety ” .
In that regard it would appear that the statists among us have a very handy ally in the Jihadist movement and it comes as no surprise to find that the authorities will bend over backwards to dhimmie themselves on the altar of political correctness as the threat of terrorism is the perfect ” bogeyman” to use for the erosion of our liberties .
