British Punks run wild protesting education cuts and tuition hikes

According to the guardian.co.uk, 52,000 spoiled brats ran amok through the streets of London today in protest over ensuing increases in tuition fees and state spending cuts for education. The mob’s main target was the campaign headquarters of the British conservative party, (Tory) which was broken into and occupied by about 200 hoodlums who engaged in battle with the police.

According to the dailymail.co.uk, the supposedly peaceful demonstration was hijacked by anarchists who sparked the violence and destruction. According to Fox News, a fire extinguisher was thrown from the roof of the building the protestors had taken over. Fortunately, no one was killed by the cowardly act.

Why is it that these brats feel entitled to a free/cheap education? Where is it written that others should pay for your college education, or anything else you desire? I guess the answer lies in the fact that these yutes grew up under the umbrella of European socialism. Unfortunately, this attitude isn’t just confined to Europe anymore. Students in the United States have also taken to the streets in recent years to protest tuition and fee hikes in State University systems.

Brainless Brats Demanding More Free Stuff.

When students protest hikes in education costs, the mantra often centers on the simplistic point that they are the future. Who could be against young people being educated? Who could be against investing in the future?

These students should try engaging their brains and temporarily disconnecting from their emotions when it comes to the issue of government spending and entitlements. They should realize that a higher education will be pretty useless when the government takes 60 to 70% of their wages to pay for all the other “investments” towards the future. The fact is that this really isn’t about the future – not really. The students protesting today will probably be reasonably ok when they graduate; it’s their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren who’ll eventually pay the tab. It’s not about the future, it’s about their future; all other futures be damned! That’s the self devouring nature of the gluttonous beast called socialism.

Perhaps, just perhaps, the recent midterm election was a sign that Americans are a bit smarter than their European counterparts. Maybe the American people realized that their country was barreling towards the point of no return; the point already reached by Greece, Britain, and others in Europe. Maybe the racists, homophobes, and haters who identify with the Tea Party movement actually stopped the United States just inches from the edge of the cliff. Maybe, just maybe…only time will tell.

Hello.

I think you are placing blame harshly and wrongly. Of course, the generic student is politically ignorant, prone to herd mentality and generally likes to kick up a fuss. However, is this due to the fact we as a society do not place enough emphasis on political education? Should current economy be somehow compulsory?

I think economics should be compulsory, or rather I think that sounds good on paper. But really it would all depend on the teachers, and unfortunately I have zero faith in the academe.

Some of us realized at an early age that if there was no wealth (rich people) there would be no jobs. I realized that simple fact when I was a teenager, much less a college student. I agree that most young people are ignorant when it comes to economics, but I’m hesitant to make excuses for them. In an age where information is more abundant than ever, there is little excuse to be ignorant of simple real life concepts. It also amuses me that when I was a yute, no one ever kissed my butt or told me that I was the future. I hate to sound like an old fuddy duddy, but many of today’s yutes act like a bunch of entitled spoiled brats. (mostly the fault of parents and educators) I guess it’s true that the new 18 is now 25.
