Why are people so vexed that young men and women have fun. To the OP, it may have been bad taste to burn 50 quid in front of a homeless person, but
other people may have beaten him up or thrown a brick through the local off licence or pub window instead of trashing a posh resturant.
Why are people so astonished because some irresponsible rich kids do these things? Why do people selectively miss out that other people do things
I was young once. I got drunk and done some pretty stupid things. Got into random fights, lied, cheated, danced terribly whilst thinking i was great.
We all do these things regardless of our family’s income.
However, I did not belong to a "club" that organised abuse and required me to carryout unpleasant acts as part of the initiation. If I got drunk at a
night club, and punched someone in the kebab shop afterwards, well that’s obviously not very nice at all. However, if that nightclub required me to
punch a person in order to get into the nightclub then it is a premeditated and coldly thought out crime. It shows that the club itself is pretty
horrendous and that my decision to go to the nightclub means that I had made the decision in advance, and while sober, to carry out said crime. It is
no longer a random act of drunken stupidity, but an organised and premeditated act that is coldly thought out and planned.
And even when I was committing random act of stupidity, while young and drunk, it normally involved getting into a fight with someone on equal
footing. Even when drunk I understood that were lines that you didn’t cross. Picking on the most vulnerable members of society was one of them
lines. It appears that Cameroon and his ilk do not have these lines.
They probably all giggled with excitement (while sober) about what they were going to do that night. This shows that, while at university, they had
deep seated loathing of the poor and felt a sense of superiority over those who are homeless.
And then, in adult life, they become leaders of the country and are responsible creating a just and fair society?
