Found at Libcom.org, Ari makes a good review of why, even if we may agree with some elements of the officialist discourse on the riots (which are surely "juvenile, destructive, unreasonable, and naive"), we really have nothing to talk with them anyhow.
The riots are indeed not political, existing politics is useless for most people
To say, then, that these riots and this looting are "not political" is to understand something very key indeed. Namely, that politics as it heretofore stands has shown itself, for many years and more clearly than ever, to be utterly inadequate in addressing the concerns and needs of those who barely fall beneath its shadow to start.
...Riots are the other side of democracy, when democracy means the capacity and legitimacy to vote into place measures that directly wound the very population they purport to represent.
Looting is the other side of credit, when credit entails the desperate scrambling of states and institutions to preserve a good line, cost to those who might borrow that credit be damned.
It is brutal that people need to defend their stores with baseball bats, in fear of losing them.
It is brutal that people have to spend their lives working in those stores, in fear of losing them.
None of these are mutually exclusive. They are all true.
Bertolt Brecht would have understood it that way indeed.
But the Camerons of this day would let us believe that the latter is "fair", "fair play" and "free market" and even "freedom itself" - and what not.
