But you know things are strange, indeed, when Anarchists are angry because governments are cutting back.
This, from Stogie, describes the situation well:
I believe it was The Other McCain who noted that the left's sense of entitlement is now so pronounced that it represents a lethal threat. He was talking about Wisconsin, but now the massive temper tantrum over free money has reached London. British freeloaders, suddenly cut off from the mother's milk of socialism, are rioting there at half a million strong, smashing office windows, defacing buildings and attacking police.
To paraphrase Margaret Thatcher, "The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money." Socialism has run out of other people's money and the spending must stop. When the spending stops, however, the temper tantrums begin.
Governments trying to restore fiscal solvency are like parents with spoiled children. If the parents don't give in to every whimsical demand of their over aged, selfish brats, they run the risk of violence. Their spoiled children may smash the house and even beat up the parents.
