In a French picket-line, breaking stuff is still traditional,
spray-painting the streets with slogans is still expected, so is
slashing the tires of "scabs", so is setting fire to large bonfires in
the middle of highways, tearing down traffic signs, dumping tons of
slurry in front of banks and government agencies (which is much more
costly to clean up than a broken window), sprinkling industrial-sized
nails on roads, pilling up truck-loads of bricks in front of government
agencies, and good old-fashioned "scuffles" with the riot police.
All this "mindless violence" is part-and-parcel of any prolonged French
strike. But in the Anglo-Saxon view of things, the slightest damage to
the front-window of a bank or any "paint bomb" is treated as a major
criminal offense. Riot-police will immediately arrest any youth guilty
of throwing a brick at a window shop or splashing paint on a government
But this "pooh-poohing" of so-called "violence" can only lead to a
build-up of anger amongst the population. What is infantile is the
Anglo-Saxon world's refusal to admit to any kind of class struggle, with
it's insistence that "THERE ARE NO CLASSES, THAT IS A MARXIST
INVENTION". What is infantile is the careful daily feeding of news and
"entertainment" to the US and UK masses. What is infantile is telling
the millions of unemployed that they are useless and let alcohol or
cocain take their toll.
But let the front windows of two dozen banks get trashed and
spray-painted and KABOOM you have got HEADLINE NEWS !
How infantile is that ?
