A specter is haunting Europe — the specter of capitalism. French cab drivers are frightened out of their gourds by Uber, the ride-for-hire app. So last week they overturned cars, burned tires and incited general mayhem. Then one of them said, evidently with a straight face, "Why isn't the government enforcing the law? It's apparently possible not to respect the rule of law." The complaint was not quite so weird as it sounds: Recent French law prohibits both the ride-sharing app Uberpop and unlicensed taxi-driving, but Uber has continued to operate while awaiting a final court decree that would shut it down. But, writes A. Barton Hinkle, in another sense it is grotesquely wrong: meting out indiscriminate violence to demand the government threaten further violence
If the findings are true, that's really great news.
Governments overplayed their hands with mandates that they are losing the ability to enforce.
The Trump administration might be setting the stage to eject foreign techies who've played by every immigration rule.
They're using their Second Amendment rights to protect local businesses from riots and looting.
