In central London yesterday I walked past some of these odious so-called students. Some of them from the evergreen rent-an-idiot Socialist Workers tendency had mass-produced posters:
We Demand Free Education
The fine example of Cambridge student vandal Charlie Gilmour, rich and pampered beyond belief, shows us what ‘education’ does for some people.
What is the point of amassing public money to subsidise the madness of young people who (a) think that complex services even in theory can be ‘free’, and (b) then proceed to ‘demand’ them.
This is simply just the latest face of liberal fascism:
- We’re right. You’re wrong.
- We are right to use violence to force you to pay for us.
- You therefore work for us, and on our terms.
- We, the unproductive and without learning are the masters. You, the productive with learning, are the slaves
The key point to remember about student protests is that they are basically phoney. Many of the key participants fold when their exams hove into view. Some well-targeted prosecutions and expulsions would kill this off quickly.
See for eample this lively account of doomed student radicalism (with added Tony Blair!) at Oxford in the early 1970s.
Bottom line. I have to pay for three Crawfs to get through school and university. I don’t want to pay as well for Charlie Gilmour and the massed student left-fascists swarming round the streets of London yesterday.
Students Loans are good. They compel said Crawfs and tens of thousands of other young people to start thinking about self-reliance, not being looters and moochers:
You stand in the midst of the greatest achievements of the greatest productive civilization and you wonder why it’s crumbling around you, while you’re damning its life-blood–money.
You look upon money as the savages did before you, and you wonder why the jungle is creeping back to the edge of your cities…
In any case, if there is one reason to join Twitter it is to follow @OldHoborn demolishing these protesters in one brutal swipe after another.
