Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
When the state and large corporations cooperate to manage populations at their own expense, you have fascism. It doesn't matter if it's dressed up with jackboots, window breaking and flag-waving, or with serious editorials and pompous economic word salad.

so true... after the london riots, 'normal' people were begging for more police to save them, whilst the police deliberately had withheld services to ensure that very reaction.

that's how it's done... make things so shitty that force is the only possible counter-reaction.

the is the result of too much stupid for too long. society eating itself...
