To the Left:
Don't you fucking dare try to justify in any way the orgy of lawlessness we've seen.
I don't want to hear the word 'disaffected' again. The word you're looking for is 'scum'.
If you try to push your agenda on the back of this looting, you are nothing but the political wing of the looters.
To the Right:
I know you armchair generals would like to rush us into martial law. That ain't the answer.
The answer is to let the citizens arm themselves and thus defend themselves.
Ordinary citizens need to be empowered - 'The Big Society'. remember? Or are you just a bunch of gutless cowards, who want the big government to take care of you?
Authoritarianism is not the answer - the overbearing state is what's got us into this mess.
