Sleepy Rosie BS: The middle classes are revolting (94* d) RE: BS: The middle classes are revolting 24 Feb 09

"Mind you, this is the sort of mess from which the likes of Hitler rose. Charismatics can quite often make the pendulum swing too far the other way."

Aye, the big dangers of any revolution, are that the worst aspects of human nature lets loose. The major problem I see with the UK, is that it won't be a peoples revolution at all, it'll end up being a version of some kind of civil war. With major socio-political splitting between extremes of 'progressive' left wing anarcho-communist type movements (which would necessitate serious WORK and co-operation between those willing and enlightened enough to *take responsiblity* for reforging a workable alternative) on the one hand. And the hard right on the other... Nationalism and mass scapegoating of the most ugly and dangerous kind, could burgeon like a forest fire after a long hot summer IMO. But especially amongst those who will be throwing their toys out of their prams because they're not getting drip-fed their tranquilisers any more.

I can't justify my thoughts on this to be fair, it's simply the way it pans out in my imagination.
