Commenter Twinkie wraps things up:
Let me summarize the reactions of this crowd in response to this incident.
Anti-capitalist: The airline is at fault. Typical greedy corporate behavior.
Economic libertarian: It’d have been a perfect auction market if the people involved had just behaved rationally – as they should… but don’t… but will one day… if I am in power… that is, if I felt like being in power… which I don’t… because I am too smart.
Social libertarian: The cops – those pigs! – are at fault. Beating up an old man and flaunting the compulsive power of the state, as usual. Down with the state!
White nationalist: The passenger is at fault. Typical Oriental invader behavior – throwing himself onto a hard object to extract compensation from what whites have built. Parasite!
Earnest Christian: If only everyone involved believed in Son of God, this wouldn’t have happened.
Nostaligc traditionalist: This didn’t have in the 1950′s. Everyone was polite and reasonable in the past. Even blacks.
HBD fanatic: This is all in the genes. When conflicting gene pools collide, that is, when Asian grinder genes (keep at it – keep sitting there – even when it doesn’t work!), white creativity genes (we’ll sell more tickets than there are seats! Hey, we invented the airplane anyway), and black violence/warrior genes (grab that obstinate passenger and bash his head!) smash into each other, the result is always negative. It’s all very scientific.
Eternal optimist: Fake news. 99% of air transport passengers are delivered to their destinations without receiving a head trauma.
Eternal pessimist: This is yet another example of the decline of civilization. We are all doomed. Doomed!
Conspiracy monger 1: Didn’t happen. This is just all a distraction to blind us to the conspiracy.
Conspiracy monger 2: Yup. Deep state wins again.
Smarter-than-the-rest: You are all wrong. Here is why.
Me: That reminds me why I’m glad I seldom get invited to fly anywhere.
Sides with Captain Bligh over Fletcher Christian: The captain must be obeyed!
