So, they’ve started shooting looters in the aftermath of the Chilean earthquake. They admit right in the first sentence: “One man was shot and killed and some 160 arrested as troops tried to stop the looting of food and other goods during an overnight curfew.”
The looters are after food, first and foremost. The army and the police should be helping the looters recover and distribute food. This is capitalism and government at their absolute and simplest worst. They did it in New Orleans as well. Honestly: how can anyone think that government is a good idea? Here’s the time that the idea of centralized governance seems best, helping respond to a crisis, yet instead of helping, they are protecting their hegemony and, well, killing people who are trying to survive.
