let’s fuck shit up

so. some students got angry that their parents wouldn’t have to pay more fees and broke some windows. and everyones talking about it. apart from the fact that its super boring to talk about this, its also pointless.

a) all current undergrads will not pay anymore than their [arguably exobitant] £3000ish a year, which is probably already paid for/in part by their parents [me included]

b) most of these people probably went because their friends did, and couldn’t care less about a starving african child.

c) i’m not sure of any examples of protest (“violent” or otherwise) changing much without lobby groups or similar people feeling the same in a position to change anything.

i love how the “meeedja” have an orgasm when any property is damaged and clamour to be the top retard in calling it violent. i mean, it’s not like there’s anything else going on. and it’s not like they’re angry because they were effectively seduced by the lib dem’s into voting for them. oh no. i mean, yeah, i fell off my bike the other day but i think i’d remember something like signing a pledge to scrap tuition fees. another thing, news reports of this kind of thing always go on about how many police were hurt.

a) they have chosen to put themselves in a position where they are likely to suffer the shitty end of the public stick, usually clad in armour, with an effective means of fighting back, and as some shitty philosopher once said “do not complain about anything to which you need not subject yourself.”

b) crimes against the state do not seem anywhere near as concerning as state crimes against an individual. in this case it appears to be half and half. big fucken deal.

so what’s going to happen? my prediction (it’s imbecilic to make predictions unless you want to look like one), is that fees will indeed go up to £9000 a year, which will hopefully stop dull pricks from doing degrees in surf science.

it’s not all doom and gloom
