After a day of violent clashes in Toronto, police apprehended dozens of G20 rioters who rampaged through downtown burning police cars and smashing windows. It was a warm soggy June Saturday afternoon with hundreds of teenagers dreaming of revolution and lots of innocent bystanders checking out the "circus". Union activists provided the platform for criminals to piggy-back on.
So who were they?
Highly enabled spoiled white teenagers, third, fourth, fifth generation European, Canadian and Americans with no work ethic, no manners and the need to destroy what they certainly have never understood and have had nothing to do with building. Many are Marxists slash Leftist-Anarchists slash Anti-Capitalists. Few of them have read Hayek, Mises, Santayana, Szasz, Popper, Blanshard, the six most important modern philosophers in the world, (see, Six Reasonable Men); they refer to themselves as social activists, but really they're the lazy entitled haters of reason, liberty and responsibility. For example, if you were an employer, you'd be hard pressed to keep them employed and would likely let them go for their lack of productivity -- they believe that working for a living is for suckers; they believe in everyone's human rights but especially their own. They're too proud to serve but formidable enough to destroy. They need to complain about life and I guess Toronto is the latest complaint department.
They travel in packs--they think we're all in bondage and that we understand nothing of what's happening in the world. They were throwing feces in Macdonald's, Starbuck's, The Gap and other capitalist symbols of the West. They think that accomplishes a positive goal.
They believe there is such an economic event as laissez-faire capitalism which is affected by a dozen rich Jews in a luxurious secret room in New York City who decide the fate of the vast majority of us no-brainers. Hard work is an illusion. Ideas don't exist and human beings certainly don't have them. Our gains are the earth's groans. They think that there is no co-relationship between seven billion people on the planet and food supply, modern medicine, science and one of the greatest non-linear events we’ve ever invented: most of us acting in economic concert. Like religionists, they don't care about facts. Platonic wishful-thinking is their forte. Shouldn't we just let them run the world and those rich industrial parasites and the ignorant middle class pay for it all–always for them the scapegoats must fund the grand welfare scheme.
Have they worked 40, 50, 60 years on the planet striving in wisdom for human kind? Have they read thousands of books? You can't imagine how ignorant these young militants are; they're hedonists, robin-hood wannabes and blackmailers. You think that if they threaten violence on a beautiful city like Toronto that they're not extortionists? Of course they are. Give us social welfare or we'll kill you.
Are they democratic? Are they Asian, Indian, Pakistani, and other hard working emigrants to Canada? Are they old wise monks demanding human rights in Mongolia? Are they peaceful Chinese dissidents marching for the vote in mainland China? Are they hard working middle-class property owners protesting unfair tax? Are they environmentalists demanding investigation into oil companies? Are they decent, trustworthy human beings? No. No. No!
You know they're just lawbreakers - anarchists - Leftists whose cause is completely disgraced in the world. Socialism is the ideology that enslaves all for the benefit of all–never do socialists admit who will foot the bill. They want to live a life that someone else pays for–they're all about human sacrifice and they're immoral.
I too want to protest against the Harper government. For instance, when is his government ever going to put a single dollar down on the accumulated debt now over a trillion dollars? But I'm not going to smash Steven Harper's windows and burn his car. I might vote for the Liberals if they'd put up a fiscal non-Keynesian economic leader like Paul Martin, who by the way, paid off nearly 90 billion dollars on the debt while he was Minister of Finance. Just so we’re clear about our debt: when Trudeau left office we had a – first-time ever for Canada – accumulated deficit of 125 billion dollars. When Mulroney left office, it was a whopping 500 billion. Here's a law of North American politics: the liberals are big spenders, the Conservatives are bigger spenders.
Are those demonstrators protesting lazy drugged-out mismanagers in our society who take and take and give nothing back but cost us so much---all the so-called beautiful losers? Are they inept junkies of their blackberries, iphones and other devices who won't read books for the life of themselves? Are they the "clicking class" who are so bored that they would rather parade in chaos than spend a dull wet day doing real non-violent politics? Have they been enabled by their left-leaning liberal-Christian parents? Yes. Yes. Yes!
