Excellent Baltimore analysis

Interfluidity has the best commentary on the Baltimore riots that I've seen so far:
"In small matters, the fact that people will bear disproportionate costs to protest small ripoffs is essential to the integrity of everyday commerce. In larger affairs, the human propensity to altruistic punishment means we all bear costs of perceived injustice, we all have a stake in finding some mix of society and legitimating ideology under which outcomes are perceived as broadly right."
I am reminded of Will Wilkinson's fantastic post on the Occupy protests a while back.
