There's just not enough HISTORY on this blog anymore.

Wow! This is very interesting - and sounds more plausible than what the conservative politicians say. And sounds better than what most experts say.

An online version is here - for those who want to quote from this text (like me):

It's interesting - but interviewed looters claimed that they were looting in order to teach the "rich people" a lesson. Doesn't that imply that, far from rejecting the values and obligations imposed by wider society, they are actually acknowledging those values and using them as the payload of their weaponry? After all, if they really believed that those goods should be free for all to take as they see fit, then in what sense would they be "punishing" anyone by taking them?

We can't see that anywhere in the text above. Where did you see it?
