What does it mean to defund the police--and what would it take to truly do so? That a man can lose his life for passing a fake $20 bill, when we know that our economies are flush with fake money, says something damning about the ways in which we've organized society. At the nexus of the current discourse on policing and violence is the unavoidable fact that criminal codes value property more than human life, and thus substantive change isn't possible until we rethink the very idea of private property itself.
