That's what happens when a government makes people dependent on them. Puts them in a mind set to be "taken care of" rather than to "take care of themselves". This is the scariest part of socialism. The mind set that it puts people in.

Thank you Free Bird! It's nice to see somebody out there has a clue! You are correct! This riot is the result of a mindset that education is a "right" and an "entitlement". Once a person is in the mindset that education is an "entitlement". The next thing that follows in this same person's mind is, "I should not have to pay for an education, and the government should give it to me for free".

Problem is, education is not free! Somehow, someway, somebody, somewhere has to pay for it! I hope I am wrong, but I think this student riot in the UK is a sign of what could pontentially happen in the United States.

They are many among us who think this way gentlemen, but to afraid to say anything for the fear of being criticize!
I look at it this way “ you have to stand for something, or you will fall for anything..

And it will happen here in the US. Just take a good look what's happening now!

Seems like most of our progressive friends went underground. I hope some sunlight on the agenda turns out be the best radiation treatment for the cancer.If not then the game stakes may have to be raised.
