Anarcho-tyranny

I had not seen this term until recently. For example, Auron MacIntyre tweeted in response to this report with video of the NYPD arresting a 9 year-old child in NYC because she didn’t have a vax card in a museum:

Under anarchotyranny shoplifting rings loot the shelves of your neighborhood stores without fear while your children are arrested for visiting a museum without their papers

Apparently this has been around for a while. Here’s a column from Michelle Malkin, One Nation Under Anarcho-Tyranny that discusses more.

It’s not “socialism” or “communism” under which we suffer. Our dangerously chaotic, selectively oppressive predicament is more accurately described as “anarcho-tyranny.” The late conservative columnist Sam Francis first coined the term in 1992 to diagnose a condition of “both anarchy (the failure of the state to enforce the laws) and, at the same time, tyranny — the enforcement of laws by the state for oppressive purposes.”

The “criminalization of the law-abiding and innocent,” Francis expounded, is achieved in such a state through: “exorbitant taxation, bureaucratic regulation; the invasion of privacy, and the engineering of social institutions, such as the family and local schools; the imposition of thought control through ‘sensitivity training’ and multiculturalist curricula; ‘hate crime’ laws; gun-control laws that punish or disarm otherwise law-abiding citizens but have no impact on violent criminals who get guns illegally; and a vast labyrinth of other measures.”

She then follows this up with more examples like Auron’s, one of which involved her.
