Watch the World Burn

If I had a list of people I really don't care about - which I don't because I don't care enough to make a list, Milo Yianopoulos would be somewhere near the top. But I was listening to a podcast today on which he was discussed at length. The host, Yaron Brook, referred to Milo as an engine of chaos - he may have been quoting Milo's description of himself.

But that reminded me of something that I'm not sure Brook intended, but which fits perfectly and makes perfect sense. Milo is the Joker.

I just did what I do best. I took your little plan and I turned it on itself. Look what I did to this city with a few drums of gas and a couple of bullets. Hmmm? You know... You know what I've noticed? Nobody panics when things go "according to plan." Even if the plan is horrifying! If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it's all "part of the plan". But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!

Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of chaos. 

Milo doesn't use drums of gas and bullets, he throws verbal bombs, but he throws them for the same purpose, destruction for the sake of destruction. The negation of value and values. Milo seeks to tear down the left, and based on how he goes about it, to take the right down with it.

It’s not about the money, it’s about sending a message. Everything burns!

I don't have understanding of the pathology of a committed nihilist like Milo, but I know that Alfred got it right:

Some men aren't looking for anything logical. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

1 Good _grief_.  Milo has done more to harm the left than, well, just about anyone.  If you don't like how he goes for it, too bad.  This is ludicrous.
