Please let us ask WHY?
Like all of you, I am so saddened. I am so depressed and heart-broken to see so much brutality, inhumanity and indignity all around. I don't know. What I know is that something must be done. The evil is visiting us all. We must not be late in confronting it.
"There is a context to London's riots that can't be ignored" (read the article below)
The more I observe what is going on, and the more I ask WHY, the more obvious it becomes: Since Thatcher, successive British governments, to their shame and to our tragic cost, have foolishly pursued the dreaded "Washington Consensus", the unethical neo-liberalism, and the inhumane neo-liberal capitalism and now we (the people) are paying the price. Yes, what is happening, the burning and the destruction is not and cannot be excused. This is a sheer madness. But only a heartless, ignorant fool and demagogue will not follow this by asking "WHY all these horrible things are happening?"
