London Riots. (The BBC will never replay this. Send it out)
Like the gentleman in this interview with the BBC I don’t condone the riots, I wish to understand all the reasons for them, not just here but globally.
The BBC should be ashamed of themselves for speaking to this man like they did, you can hear the twisting and turning of the interviewers words, which sound ever so familiar and reminded me of the way politicians spin.
You may have to turn the volume up a bit on this one, but its well worth a watch to the very end, but of course some of you just want to focus on what happened not how it happened, some of you still think it’s just a problem the UK is facing, and most of you are consenting to further oppression and intolerance without seeking the truth first, the continuation of class, race and social division will all be down to the British public who were to selfish and blind to a growing discontent which spans generations.
When will we learn that everything that happens to us is sometimes indirectly via our own consent.
From Wiki, (words in this colour are mine)
“Consent of the governed” is a phrase synonymous with a political theory where in a government‘s legitimacy and moral right to use state power is only justified and legal when derived from the people or society over which that political power is exercised. This theory of “consent” is historically contrasted to the divine right of kings and has often been invoked against the legitimacy of colonialism. Article 21 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that “The will of the people shall be the basis of the authority of government.”
A key question is whether the unanimous consent of the governed is required; if so, this would imply the right of secession for those who do not want to be governed by a particular collective. All democratic governments today allow decisions to be made even over the overt dissent of a minority of voters, which in some theorists’ view, calls into question whether said governments can rightfully claim, in all circumstances, to act with the consent of the governed.
By failing to act through the process of constitutional amendment to change such provisions, the people have consented to them. (so doing nothing is not an option is it).
