And I suppose your talking allowed you to light up town after town staying ahead of the police? If you used telephones back in the day, then
now you know why there are wiretaps.
Thanks for proving my point, the riots led to these new laws governing modern communication.
Did I mention telephones? I didn't mention telephones.
It's really quite simple - when government - or any other function of state gets too out of control historically two groups have changed things. The
middle classes and the student classes.
Yes there were some eejits during the riots - there was also some quite deliberate - and quite sane vandalism. Why? Because if the demonstration was
entirely peaceful the media did not report on it. It is the duty of every generation to 'rebel' against the wrongs of the preceding generation -
that's how we progress.
As the student classes march (and ours have been sleeping for 20 years I'm so pleased they're starting to wake up) the middle classes traditionally
handle the spread of information and provide alternative systems for the future. Why the middle classes? Simply because the tend to have the dosh,
time and education to enable them to do so. Why not the upper echelons? Why don't they facilitate change? Obviously because any change puts their
position at the top of society's ladder at risk? Why not the poor? Cos they're too damn busy trying to survive another day.
'There is no such thing as a successful rebel for the successful rebel becomes the establishment.'
Now do you think the power brokers of today achieved their position by sitting with their cap in their hands hoping things may go their way and that
today they will receive their daily bread? Or do you think they, and their ancestors, were the rebels of our history?
Your attitude appears to be one of the fearful schoolchild who wants to be the teacher's pet.
What is your solution to the current global governmental and corporate abuse the majority of the people on this planet are currently being subjected
