Response to the UK Riots

In the past few days there have been a series of riots. They have stopped being the peaceful vigil they started as and have descended into scenes of chaos and violence. And of course, the video game is constantly blamed.

Humans are violent creatures. Other animals kill for food, they fight each other for dominance, but they don't go out of their way to cause misery on others. Humankind is the only species that is as brutal and mindless as a virus. Most people can learn to harness what we have been given. We find outlets, and have been brought up to find those outlets. I am in favor of video gaming being used in this way. If someone is playing call of duty online with friends, then he is in a social environment, and, more importantly, not burning the entire stocks of a family run business that has survived everything else for 150 years.

These people are from various backgrounds, but all of them feel the need to cause pain and suffering on others. They obviously have not learnt control and are slaves to the beast which is inside us all.

But, on the other side of the coin, shop keepers have been mobilising to protect what they own. And guess what, BNP, some of them are protecting themselves from born and bred British people. The shopkeepers are of all kinds of race, but that doesn't matter, because they work here, they pay taxes here, and they employ people.

And if anyone is reading this and is involved with causing this misery, look at yourself. Look at what made Britain great then ask yourself if you are doing what Britain's are meant to do.

Britain has always been the underdog. We needed that empire in order to look big and strong. The empire was almost like Britain's mid life crisis. Men buy big flashy cars, Countries invade one another. Then, we returned to normal and started plodding away. Two world wars passed, one with largely just the uk standing up and waving it's fist at the invaders, much like an old man telling kids to get off his lawn. And in the cold war, we clung to the idea that everyone is out to get us (and in some cases that was true). As a result of that paranoia, we came up with a nuclear land mine kept warm by live chickens.

It's what i love about Britian. We are still that old man who grumbles and complains, but has a history of bravery and clever inventions that make the world sit up and realise that although we are just that small country we do have a lot of impact still. That's what saddens me about the recent events. London is the most multicultural city in the world. And for the past few nights, areas have been controlled by multicultural idiots.
