Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I read this comment, after reading all, and i wonder what continuous directed riots would produce. As i try to envision the end game, perhaps even a solution.

Directed by whom, and to what end?

What's the point of riots begetting more violence? The state is always stronger, unless you're talking about organized, weaponized, rebellion. But then the rebels become the next enslavers.

Unless they have vision, real vision, which is sorely lacking in all i see. Perhaps it's the province of the young to enjoy striking down the state's glass show windows. But i see no solution evolving, only more pain and violence.

Besides, the states themselves are proving to be powerless against the global corporate oligarchies. To stop them demands real vision.

I'm thinking a far more effective revolutionary act is to stop buying shit. but i can't yet see the almost upon us iPhone 5 generation understanding that, much less the Playstation socialists.

I can't see directed riots leading to anything but more pain. I can see visionary action leading to a chance to build a new future. Which starts with simply saying no, but then building what you want your yes to be.
