Looting represents a material way that riots and protests help the community
We need a total transformation of our society
This society we live in under capitalism is entirely structured around the production [and] circulation of commodities. It is a cruel system, built for the creation and revocation of things not for the flourishing of people.
Her name is Vicky Osterweil. It’s a pity that she is only emerging on the scene now. Had her ideas enjoyed broad circulation even a month ago, she could have made a major and clarifying contribution to the Democratic Party’s platform.
Many commentators, from the Left as well as the Right, grumbled that the Democrats’ convention lacked a clear policy agenda. Sure, we all knew in general outline what they were about—they were “against racism,” “against white supremacism,” above all, they were “against Trump.”
But the policy particulars that flowed from these sentiments were more adumbrated than stated directly. Vicky Osterweil (formerly Willie) fills in some blanks. Too bad she didn’t have a spot speaking at the convention. She sums up so much of what the Democrats are about today.
Like Joe Biden (and like his mentor Barack Obama), she is passionately committed to “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” Peeking out of his basement in May, Joe Biden saw “an incredible opportunity to transform America.”
Meet the Democrats’ Newest Strategist
You'd love to rob LysergO like take off you rocks

Plenty to unpack here, debate & criticize. Too many people unfairly attacking their appearance.
I won't defend looting, however, if the act of looting gets your blood boiling, but you remain calm cool & collected when innocent lives are lost... that's an indication that you prioritize material belongings over human life. That's not exactly a good thing.
