Very few things puzzle me more at the moment than the UK's "anti-cuts" movement.
On one level, I can see how it's just the usual bunch of disaffected yoof having a bash at things for the hell of it, egged on by hardcore anarchists, self-appointed revolutionaries and half-baked neo-Marxists and supported by the ever-growing ranks of the genuinely hard done-by.
But on another, there is a serious lack of reflection going on there. It proves the theory that if you give to someone on a regular basis for long enough, when you cut back, for whatever reason, it is regarded by the recipient as you "taking" from them. Which leads to the wider point of confusion; how can you be an anarchist when you are "protesting" for the government to do something for you.
I could maybe understand protesting against government action, or just against the government - although I wouldn't usually condone it in a liberal democracy. But what has happened to an entire generation of British people who think it their right to destroy things in the name of ... well.. getting stuff from the government?
And these are not pensioners and the disabled. These are young, able-bodied folk who have the energy to fight with police.
So what do the grownups think? Well, if you happen to be Labour "Leader" Ed Miliband, it's the government that's gone "too far and too fast".
They're such rebels! They support the Royal Mail!!
