Chaos is spreading across London this evening as rioting scum take to the streets again, when darkness falls things may get worse. What started in Tottenham has now spread out, and other cities such as Birmingham are reported to have possibly similar problems. You want to why we have this scourge?
“Everything in our system, from our schools, to our justice system, to our welfare system, to the blood in our veins says “it isn’t your responsibility”, “nothing is your responsibility”. When I speak incessantly about people taking responsibility, whoever you are, a teacher, a father, a mother, an ordinary citizen, I am lambasted. None of us believes in personal and collective responsibility anymore. Already, people are saying that these riots are the fault of the cuts. It is as if we are all brainwashed into never holding anyone to account for what they do!
While the perpetrators of the violence last night are of course responsible for this atrocity, that doesn’t let the rest of us off. We too are responsible for these riots because we have allowed a culture of moral relativism to rule, where anything goes, where we refuse to hold others and ourselves to account. Mark my words: if we continue to deny the part we play in this, there will only be more riots to come.”
One of the most interesting observations about WHERE the riots are taking place is that they are all in LABOUR supporting areas. Well, these are the places that embraced the rich multicultural experience, now they can live with the consequences. Enjoy.
