Riots Reasons

Yesterday I heard the mayor of NY city saying in TV news: We have to protect our police vs. the violence of the protesters… – hmmh? Which was first, the chicken or the egg? Who made the first anti-social step?

After noticing the riots in Arabia and Europe (Euro crisis) as well as in the USA (Occupy Wall St. / democracy-now movement): I ask my self, who made the first anti-social step without any morality? Some tyrants in Arabia, sitting on their throne too long? Or chaotic minded Islamists using the uneducated people? As for the financial crisis: Some bankers in Europe or some rating agencies in the USA? The protesters on streets and public squares, staying a little bit too long in tents? Maybe the administrations of the cities, the police, sometimes the military? The philosopher Kierkegaard once said: “A passionate, tumultuous time will drag down everything. However a reflecting time will transform the expression of force into a dialectic feat: let exist everything, but cunningly deprive everything of its significance.”

  2. Thanks Frizztext: Things are very bad. There is no mistake. People everywhere got to a point where they realize that their rugs have been pulled frm under their feet. same with the tablecloths, (so to speak). What is one to do? Well they’re taking to the streets. Still, you don’t hear a political discorse, from our master puppetiers, which means that they don’t care.

    • they don’t care… – maybe; on the other hand: the prime minister changed in Greece, even in Italy; and it wasn’t such a big struggle like in Libya or Egypt; I’m still hoping, democracy has the power; supported by good TV-channels, newspapers, youtube, wordpress, twitter etc. – Immanuel Kant (still my hero) never ever fought on the street, but he trusted the written words to be a good weapon …

  3. This is such a dilemma particularly as passions are mounting on both sides of the energetic active and the force of the more thoughtful for whom violence of any kind is abhorrent but who seek to redress the balance in any fair, and free, society.

    For some this pic is a bag of mixed emotions, for me? how sad that another human being would have this experience. My mind wants to dismiss this as a “fake” and the fire only illusion, society shows the same reaction, I think.

  8. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  9. If you ask me, riots are unaddressed (denied) grievances, that matured in the absentia of discourse. Thanks again for your post Frizztext!
