I guess the simple answer to the question is yes we have gone to far. Now we have to wait for it to swing so far one way so it then starts to start to swing the other way.

I actually believe that Trump has somewhat caused the counter swing of the left that we're seeing now.

Atlanta police's response almost was the counter-swing. But it lost steam too fast.

Counter swing?
See my edit. Pulling to the right will bounce the lefties to the far left.

Most of it is because (they hate him) of Trump. Problem is now it has a life of its own.

Following this logic it will be illegal to wear cotton and the next step will be banning the word "farm" in the USA
https://www.cbsnews.com/amp/news/rhode-island-name-change-providence-plantations-slavery-connotations/

Quote
"Whatever the meaning of the term 'plantations' in the context of Rhode Island's history, it carries a horrific connotation when considering the tragic and racist history of our nation."

I don't where the name "Providence Plantations" came from, but from the fact that the article doesn't explain, I think it's safe to assume that it has nothing to do with slavery/racism.

The quoted section of the article actually implies that it has nothing to do with slavery. If it had even the smallest connection they wouldve been all over it , not using "horrific connotations"

Itís the greatest gift they can give Trump right before the election, he can really use it after he botched up corona so badly.

...but he talks about Kung-flu and scaling back testing. He can't help himself.

ah so you're familiar with the Rambam that says that to reverse a bad habit or behavior you must do the extreme opposite which will eventually pull you to the middle (which the optimal place a person should be )
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

Not familiar with that and it is BS. All it takes is will power.

Will power may work but you need a strong will. The extreme opposite of the bad behavior is just ampilfiying your will.

If a person is a serial robber he will be tempted to steal even after he has a will to stop. Giving charity and showing respect for others property would help him change.

I dont know if that would be applicable here. Maybe more like a teaching of r Nachman about you cant heal until you have broken everything.
