On Wednesday night, Brian Fallon — press secretary for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign — offered a slick way to fix the nation’s problems: Defund the police.

Bold move.

Personally, I can think of more than three — more than four, even — reasons that might be a bad idea.

And I’ll offer this: Closing up shop on law enforcement would result in anarchy.

But anarchy, in every case, is merely a bridge — always, from chaos will come order.

And after a grand reshuffling of the deck, the strong will rise to rule the weak.

That’s one response to Brian.

There were others, on Twitter:

Even Ted Cruz joined the match, launching quite the cinematic serve:

“Hillary’s press secretary makes the 2020 Dem agenda clear: ‘Defund the police.’ Take your guns. Cheer on the rioters and looters who burn your city. It’s like Mad Max at Thunderdome, brought home to America.”

He’s not wrong:

Arizona Senator Tom Cotton joined, too, ripping into anti-order elites:

“Wealthy liberals like Hillary Clinton’s former press assistant have no problem calling to defund the police — they can live in gated communities and hire security guards.”

Personally, I believe America is in need of law enforcement reform. But getting rid of it??

How many people tweeting such a thing would be comfortable when the strong come, and there’s no one stronger to call?

It seems to me the last few days have made one thing clear: Of all the things the country needs — and there may be many — chaos isn’t one of them.
