Ungrateful Goons

David Thompson on "protests" by college students in the UK:

One enormous placard read, “We are not your slaves!” An odd sentiment, really, from people so engorged with entitlement they assume an almost aristocratic right to other people’s labour and other people’s earnings. A more honest placard might have read, “You will pay for things I want or I’ll smash up your stuff.” But that would sound like extortion more than slavery.

Thuggery has a long and proud tradition on the left. Violence is perfectly fine as long as the cause is "just".

I find it hard to be sympathetic to Britain here. Many of the very people upset over this are drawing massive quantities of public funds to support their own lifestyles. In fact, the drain is so bad that these students likely wouldn't have jobs in their native land by the time they graduate.
