Smart thoughts on the London Riots + one dumb journo

There’s been a lot of reactionary claptrap on the London Riots, exemplified in the clip above – an interview conducted by a mainstream media drone. Here’s some of the more intelligent stuff I’ve read:

Shoplifters of the World Unite! – I expected nothing less of Žižek

Feral Capitalism Hits the Streets – David Harvey elaborates on the central problem: “that we live in a society where capitalism itself has become rampantly feral.”

Daylight Robbery, Meet Nighttime Robbery - Naomi Klein rips off Harvey a bit, but nails it for general consumption and so is forgiven.
