Today I drove past a small demonstration in front of the University College London in Gower Street.
I didn’t know what it was about, but I saw socialist posters.
The pavement, where no more than a few dozens people were standing, was littered all over with paper.
I was reminded of what Liberty GB leader Paul Weston told me at the English Defence League demonstration of a week ago. He noticed how all the litter from the food and drinks of the 400-500 attendees had been neatly piled up in a corner, in contrast to what happens at events organised by the Left.
In Gower Street I saw a confirmation of that.
It doesn’t surprise me. In fact, this behaviour is very much in accordance with the spirit of Leftists. What moves them is fundamentally destructive.
History has repeatedly shown that whenever socialists and communists have imposed their rule and made societies in their own image, what resulted was destruction, chaos, starvation and mass murder.
Only people motivated by destructive impulses can not be repelled by the ideology that led to it.
