you said one thing and do the ohter thing.

Laurie Penny says,  “Violence is rarely mindless.” – but in this case it has become exactly  that. And if you’re going to assume that most violence isn’t mindless,  then you may soon find yourself trying to make excuses for for violence  against women

To assume that people will always behave like rational agents with  regard for their actions is hopelessly naive. If you doubt that, watch this video of a bleeding man being mugged by random looters.

There is no doubt that cutting youth centres and EMA are a false  economy. It is probably likely that the austerity cuts and a decade of  economic stagnation will create more such flashpoints.

But none of that is helped by these riots, despite what some idiot anarchists think. The focus right now should be on putting an end to this without exception, and immediately.

Such mob rule could easily escalate to the point of major gang  violence and cause massive destruction to the lives of poor people  already hurting from the cuts. Even the Egyptians are laughing at us.

I am capable of differentiating between such mindless violence and  political protest. I will always defend the latter but this is not  political any more. They are looting and burning cars not because  society has pushed them there, but because they can. I can’t muster an ounce of sympathy for them.

 

what this. then.

I’m stuck watching the news because of what seems to be a mutant strain of Komodo Dragon flu. Please, everyone, stay safe. #londonriots.
