The Left’s push to “defund the police” is now in full swing, with the Minneapolis City Council voting to dismantle that city’s police department and leftists nationwide calling for similar measures elsewhere. Although defunding the police is substantively stupid (assuming generously that leftists care about the safety of the inner-city poor), it is politically clever. The Left has identified a rival power bloc–police departments and their unions–and has seized on an excuse to deprive that rival of its lifeblood: money. The Right can and should learn from this. Who are our enemies, and how might we starve those beasts? A few answers come to mind.
