(ConservativeInsider.org) – When an idea gets enough support, often due to the potential profit associated with it, it can take over a whole city or nation without as much as a nod to facts or statistics. Judge Learned Hand coined this phenomenon an “epidemic of ideas,” and George Liebmann, a prominent Baltimore Lawyer, calls Black Lives Matter (BLM) just that.

In 2015, BLM gained traction after the death of Freddy Gray.
