What on earth is going on? Why does it seem that up and coming generations (not entirely) are reverting back to a more barbaric and historic version of humankind. Surely wanting society to turn back the clock from a civilised society, to some kind of wild west alternative, comes from some kind of illness. As a student of history why am I seeing what can only be described as online book burning, the defacing of historic monuments in an attempt to eradicate a past, instead of learning from it. Its certainly stings of a certain brownshirted group from 80+ years ago. What next? A night of broken glass? A night of long knives? The minority is taking control and unless the majority get off of their backsides and combat it, we may end up experiencing a 4th Reich, not just in America but in Europe aswell.

Because the news of the protest is still fresh and everyone is talking about it. Chances are this will all go away in a month or two and everyone will have forgotten about it.

It has happened a number of times in the past, but it seems to be gaining more and more traction this time because of the political support that now emboldens it.

What political support? As far as I'm aware, none of the major parties have endorses the violent protests.

I didn't say the major parties have endorsed violent protests, but almost all support the root cause of the violence which is the protests themselves. Which are entirely without cause in the UK.

So then why do you talk about "the defacing of historic monuments" in your OP?

Nothing in your OP applies to the peaceful protesters.

How many of these 'violent protestors' have been dobbed in by the 'peaceful protestors' ? They are all one and the same until they choose to set themselves apart.

So are you talking about the violent protestors or not? Make up your mind.

Bottom line is that the world isn't going to **** just because some idiots decide to turn a peaceful protest into a violent one.

Well, thats subjective. Its not something thats easily debated, theres a lot of difficulty in discussions these days so I'd rather not get into an argument over something neither of us will agree on!

There's literally no debate. Peaceful protesters and violent protesters are not the same thing.
