Does something about this scene stink? Or does something about this scene stink?
One of the above scenes was out of the control of, and scared the shit out of, the Powers That Be.
The other wasn't, and didn't
If I had more time I'd wax lyrically and extensively about why yesterday's G20 protests in London were so very, very shit
But I haven't, so I won't
The short answer is that, here in Blighty anyway, opposition to the UK and Global Establishment is fragmented and lacking in a coherent ideology like never before.
None of which happened by accident
And, outside of beliefs which are discounted as conspiracy theorizing, there isn't even the faintest sign of any such coherent ideology developing in the foreseeable future
In the UK anyway
Other countries are less irredeemably fucked
I'm pretty damned certain that the Germans, or the Italians, and definitely the French or the Greeks would have put on a better show
There's a very good reason why the UK has been turned into the CCTV capital of the World
We let Them
A nice illustration of just how fucked up things are was the police behaviour at the 'climate camp' yesterday.
Not only did the police go in harder against climate protesters, holding their hands in the air chanting 'this is not a riot, this is not a riot', than they did against the shills/ muppets at the RBS window-breaking photo opportunity, those climate protesters were actually unknowingly supporting the eugenicist, carbon-taxing agenda of the same people who ultimately control the police anyway
Heads I win, tails you lose
No - coherent - opposing - ideology
Totally, totally fucked
However, looking on the bright side...
edit: though this forum posting on the subject of yesterday's demos made me laugh...
