My Child The Rioter - The Product of The Nanny State
On Tuesday evening I watched a BBC2 documentary about some of the people who rioted last summer (see it here "My Child The Rioter"), it featured interviews with some of the families and people who took part.
One particular individual, Ryan (there he is above with his father), particularly stood out. Aside from being a cretin, he happily spouted a home spun theory that his thievery that night was a "political" statement. He then went on to say that he hoped that the police got hurt.
"I wanted to see policemen being attacked
I wanted to see them being injured, I wanted to see them being treated the way they treat us. This was going to change society. Hopefully for the better."
His parents, instead of admonishing him, said that had they been younger they would have joined in.
Ryan is a product of the Nanny state. He has been brought up from birth to believe that he is entitled to everything, and that when life lets him down (as it does for most people) it is not his fault but that of "society".
The "anger" (faux or genuine) of those who claim that their actions that night were some form of protest against the police or the state (quite how burning down local shops and stealing trainers amounts to a "political" action I'm not sure) has arisen because the rioters have been told that they are entitled to everything, yet have realised that they cannot have everyhting.
Life, like it or not, can be pretty shitty at times. We are all "victims" of luck (good/bad), circumstances, upbringing, location etc etc. Those who are mature enough to understand that things don't always go well, and that even if you do your best you can sometimes screw up, don't go round thieving and buring shops down.
Sadly, the Nanny state has left vast swathes of the population in a permanent "child like" mental state (adults unable to accept responsibility or to grow up), where life's kicks and knocks produce an immature tantrum and a burning sense of rage against the "unfairness" of the world (as demonstrated by the likes of Ryan).
What should be of great concern to us all is that the future of our country lies in the hands of people like Ryan!
