The London Riots   Leave a comment

The London riots were not inspired by social media. Nor are the rioters the young black men of the 1980s responding to institutional racism. Few rioters beyond Tottenham would justify their actions in the name of Mark Duggan, the man shot by the police some days ago. Instead the London rioters of 2011 are bored, individualised young men, taking advantage of a climate in which adults are too scared to challenge them. A rather less inspiring proposition, but one that fits with the ‘jilted generation’ ethos and widespread erosion of adult authority.
