I presume the ideal society, as seen by the self-styled anarchists who firebombed an Ottawa bank this week, is a society where they get to blow up the buildings of people they dont like, and the rest of us docile sheep sit around applauding them for their courageous and moral direct action against The Man. And what a wonderful dreamscape that must be for the dimwits who inhabit it. The Freedom Fighters of the Ottawa Glebe, YouTube Division now theres a liberation movement for the world to rally round.
I pay no attention whatsoever to their pretext of a manifesto, circulated in video form along with footage of the firebombing. From the days of the Weather Underground onward, the playactors of Western radicalism always have attempted to wrap their malignant actions in some bubblewrap of concocted rationalization. They want so desperately for us to believe that they take on the burden of violent action on behalf of something other than their own egos. Dont believe them for the time it takes to light a fuse.
They are not moral actors. They are criminals. If this country has one common defining element, and I believe it has, it rests in the belief and practice that whatever differences and disagreements we have with one another, we reach for a resolution within the circle of lawful behaviour.
In shorter form, we respect one another. We do not bomb buildings on our public streets because one set of Canadians thinks it has purer politics than another set. These sad Guevera wannabes are now pariahs, whether they understand the word or not.
Weve seen steps toward violent action becoming routine or normalized already. ... ...
The moment they lit the bomb, they lost the right to talk politics.

Heres a newsflash: There are far better men and women working in Starbucks, and in the Royal Bank, than any of the crowd that kick in their windows. And far braver too. For many people, it takes more guts to go to work every day to do the daily round of often dull and wearying work to better oneself, or to care for a family than these heroic Glebe guerillas could even aspire to.
the same things have been and will be said about any one that rises up or rebels. Each individual has to decide for themselves if the cause is just or not and there will always be others that disagree with the cause or the tactics.
I agree with Rex
The anarchists (communists) want to run your life. Rising up against them so you can run your own life is morally just.
What are your thoughts on the petrol bombing of a minor bank branch in retaliation for the bank sponsoring the Vancouver Olympics.
Thank you Clive for the ping.
If they are truly anarchists, then they won’t mind when their own tactics are used against them. And when they’re denied due process and any other legal rights created and maintained by “the system.”

ON THE INTERNET:
Are you this Paul51?
hardly. Some of my posts here over the years would make that pretty clear. I didn’t read the articles but the titles told me enough. I’ve got to much history here so I don’t feel like changing my tag buy maybe I should consider it.
The glebe is one of the sicker veins in ottawa.
Over run by tree hugging brit castaway, birkenstock wearing, ivory soap mouthed tricyclists with bells in the belfry, who think they can they park a patch of astro turf or sod on their skirted egg head and save the world.
Needs to be invaded by the mooslamic horde.
Then you got the french quarters.
Basically all the federal gov’t jobs are owned by french speaking people who only need to speak broken english as a pre-req.
