I’m scared. The news today, of riots around the country, the destruction caused, the sheer mindlessness, is scaring me.
What kind of world are we creating? Is this the side effect of the “Me Generation”? You want it, you go out and get it, at any cost? Regardless of the pain, and hurt, and destruction you cause?
Can we blame the Government? Much as I love to blame the self righteous politicians for most things, I don’t believe we can hold them responsible for this. This is evil in all its form. This isn’t about race, or religion, or whether people are british born or immigrants, or whether rich or poor. This is sheer mindlessness, mob mentality.
It’s people power on a very dark day.
But the flip side is the power of the masses who refuse to be kept down by the mobs. The flip side is the groups and residents who are pulling together to clean up the aftermath.
But I am scared. Scared for the society I am bringing my children into. Scared for their future.
Think I might look for a nice farmer in a very remote location who will let us park our camper in his field until the riots have stopped, and Britain can once again be called Great.
