"That is why people need to not be idiots about it. First of all, there shouldn't be :"politicians" leading the governments, their should be "people". Common, everyday, people. Farmers, business owners, mothers, fathers, ect ect ect. It is sad to think that we have accepted a paradigm where we think these "politicians" are more qualified to lead than anybody else. Why? Because they are wealthier? Because they are bigger celebrities? Ridiculous. "
Its because of the same old problem that happens .
No government ..
Tribe A wants something from Tribe B
Whats to stop tribe a from taking somethign from tribe b ?
Tribe B has more resources and is happier then Tribe A
Tribe A only knows how to steal .
Tribe b wants to share but not as much as tribe A wants
Tribe A comes in and takes it leaving Tribe b to die....
They are not wiser but they are people who your local citizens elected to represent them ? Why not go educate those locals so they don't chose such a yuppie in power? Why not use the time not to drink but get educated and help spread the word?
to much work???
easier to smash your way to reasoning? gimme a break
We will always need a form of government no matter how small it is its still a government governing the peoples.
I am for limited government small package. Todays governments are big because of
problem reaction solution
These uk punks just helped make the government bigger with more security and camereas and more measures to deal with it ... its counter productive
and to steal from people who worked so hard disgusting my good man .
"There needs to be reform and a constant threat to governments saying that if we vote you in based on your principles, and you choose to not follow those principals - we WILL THROW YOU OUT like the last one. Do that a few more times and they will recognize they the people are serious"
The only threat to a government is an educated public not a violent one ...
"And as expected, the attacks on my character that disregard my post entirely shall begin. ATS has not changed much and people are showing their fine colors"
Its more of an attack on your irrational approach along with many other ATS members who see this as a positive trait of standing up the man if you will...its not positive its negative its counter productive and it makes the government bigger
worst part is tax payers are going to have to pay for this half a s s "revolution" or should we call it "de-evolution" lol
but this is nothing more then anarchy like saturn pointed out
Stealing and looting and violence oh my!

I have opted out of the system. Period. That is what I have done, and in the meantime I have prepared for the inevitable that is coming - revolution. Every possible thing that I could have done that does not put me into jail, I have done. Regardless of how much I hate the system, I would be pretty useless sitting in a cell. In response to the whole plasma tv thing, I don't even owe it my response. And as far as some people assuming my stance on the riots to be praising the actual attacks on civilians and looting, please read again. Thank you
As I stated in another reply, I have no connection to my material things in this world. Everything material can be replaced in a free society. People would accomplish much more if they did the same.
And you are right, there is no movement behind these riots, but there was plenty of opportunity to turn it into a movement.
Unless of course your definition of "movement" is gathering in the square and holding up signs, because I am going to have to disagree on the effectiveness of such strategies.

The Earth is a big boy/girl, it can take care of itself.
When we over step our bounds on this Earth, it is going to do the same thing is has done for eternity - it is going to wipe us all out and start over again.
Typical human thinking to believe that we are more powerful than the planet, but that is another topic for another time.edit on 11-8-2011 by gwydionblack because: spelling
