An Interesting Observation

I’ve been thinking and have made a rather interesting observation. Since the uprising in Tunisia there have been political dissent in several countries in the Middle East including Egypt, Libya, and Syria. In each case the people have finally become fed up with the actions of their government, drawn a line in the sand, and old those in power to get the fuck out. The actions of these political dissidents have been directed almost exclusively at the government which they hold grievances against.

Meanwhile in the United Kingdom (UK) events unfolded that caused a great deal of anger in the people towards their government, which sparked uprisings in the form of riots. Unlike the uprisings in the Middle East that have been directed towards the offending governments the uprising in the UK is being directed at private businesses, homes of private individuals, and other people who had nothing to do with the offending actions of the government.
