Video of the Draaaamaaa

Hot Air has some vid inside, and Weasel Zippers has some outside, including a cop bodyslamming a hippie.

I'm told. The internet is poor here so I can't really watch the videos.

They're supposed to be back in a couple of hours.

I kept out of the scrum, but the reports are that they do in fact smell, of soured, fermented body-sweat, cigarettes, and rutting lice.

I don't know what rutting lice smell like but that must have been in the mix.

And the people saying they smell are largely people who themselves were traveling all day yesterday, then stayed up till 1 am drinking, then rolled out of bed without showering.

So, to us they still smell.

I was just on FTR radio (sorry, I meant to give a head's up but draaamaa intervened) and I pointed out something simple: They are protesting because they suck at life. Their lives suck. They are doomed to suck.

But, the thing is, in any system or society, they would be on the bottom. In the socialist paradise they dream of, they'd be the drudges with the four-to-an-apartment situations.

They seem to think that if they change the way society values things, then they'll rise to the top. But they wouldn't. Because in any system, including socialism, you still have to do something to earn that top spot on the socialist gravy train.

The problems that beset them in a less-socialist system -- lack of discipline, lack of skills, lack of hygiene, lack of not sucking, etc. -- would still hamper them in the socialist paradise they clamor for.

And the thing is, the people on top of thing in a capitalist system? Would still be perched near the top of a socialist system. Because even a socialist system winds up promoting people who show up on time, do the tasks assigned to them (mostly looting money from other people), and tuck in their shirts once in a while.

We'd just all be poorer.

I pity them. What they are angry at is, ultimately, the universe itself for giving them life but not giving them ability.
