I think you are correct when you say it is not "just" about tuition, it is so
much more like the inequalities between rich and poor, joblessness, inflation
taxes, all bubbling over and pouring out into the streets. Yes mainstream
tries to hide it by not reporting it as often (Phillidelphia wasn't even covered
to my knowledge or barely). England, Greece, France, Spain....people are
waking up and this is about to go viral in a very unexpected way in my
if you ask me.

I think you'll find if you kicked out all immigrants in the UK, the country would grind to a halt pretty quickly. Which immigrants do you want to kick out? All those immigrants who come and play football here? the nurses and doctors which ensure we can have aan NHS? or just the ones you dont like.

Well, this is kind of funny. In France a few weeks ago there were riots because the government raised the retirement age from 60 to 62. Now these "students" are rioting because the tuition at schools is being raised. What Europe and the UK have done is create an entitlement populace that believes thay have a "right" to early retirement and a "right" to cheap education, all of which is subsidized by people who work abd create the wealth.
And now the whole thing is blowing up in their faces. And you want the US to go down that path (not that were not half way there already)? I hope we've got more sense, but I doubt it. People want to become dependent on government and that's what they are going to get, a welfare state where no one is responsible for themselves.

sorry but NO...., my sister is VP of Education and Welfare for the NUS in the UK. she is there now and has said several times on here msgs`s that right from the start it was a peacefull protest , and right from the start it was infiltrated by Anarchist groups and other groups like EDL, S7 and other extreme groups...all they were interested in was causing damage , when normal students and organiser`s of the lawfull protests tried to stop them `they `were attacked.
so what is it violence and anarchy or respecting the law ???
eg. what has smashing up Topshop and other criminal damage got to do with student fees ????
