Violence makes little if any positive change, but people need to stand-up to the tyranny Govs and financial terrorists. Ghandi was right and that is how India escaped colonialism where as others failed.

=Gov is usually behind the anarchists (IRA etc) in order to force security (tyranny) on a populace.

Anarchists becoming more organised. How ironic.

Actually chuckers, anarchists think the state and government should not be organized, they don't say anarchists shouldn't be.

In that case, I guess that make them hypocrites as well as vandals and wannabee terrorists.

who want to bring down state and financial institutions

Leave them alone and they will fall on their own sword. No need here for social Darwinism.

who want to bring down state and financial institutions" The state and the financials are doing that fine by themselves.... What's their goal after that happens?

Probably just a bunch of soccer fans who will bring this to the games.

Just morons will do. Typical left-wing-loonies.

Typical left-wing-loonies.

As opposed to right wing loonies? The problem is the loonies, not which wing they are on.

What is happening in some European countries is exactly what has been going on in the third world for decades. And it soon will be going on in every country, if it isn't already. Badsey, who I used to think when reading this site was a loony too, is the only poster here with any idea of what is going on. Don't be so smug folks, the outer edges of the Eurozone are just a testing ground to see how far people can be pushed.

Must be tough to live there right now. If you're European, which one would you rather get rid off: growing number of anarchists or growing number of islamists?

Today's lunatic left, tomorrow's far-right problem. '11 will be a taste of things to come... starting in Eurozone.

GJ,

"As opposed to right wing loonies? The problem is the loonies, not which wing they are on."

Agreed.

"What is happening in some European countries is exactly what has been going on in the third world for decades."

Do you mean anarchy? Or just people being loonies in general?

I think the real worry isn't the islamists, it what Europeans do when the camel's back finally breaks. We've seen a hint of the skinheads in the UK....right wing hate groups are on the rise in Europe in response, though neither seems a solution.

Why aren't these anarchist ever identified as a "hate group" when they most certainly are? Their violence isn't driven by hatred? Or is it that what they attack is a politically correct target of hate and therefore doesn't qualify?

Ironically enough, unlike muslim threads, no one here is calling for racial profiling.

Just sayin'.

Taka313 : "Ironically enough, unlike muslim threads, no one here is calling for racial profiling." Maye no they aren't, but perhaps yes they did. Just look up "Sacco and Vanzetti" on Wikipedia to see that, "the more things change, the more they stay the same", or to put it another way, "history repeats itself, but never the same way twice".

My fear is a "physician heal thyself" scenario.

I meant putting third world countries deep into debt and running them into the ground. Not justifying violence or anarchy, just saying that this economic "system" has now spread to the first world in Europe. The kind of stuff in this article is a predictable reaction to that, and it will probably increase and get worse.

That doesn't mean people should support sending letter bombs to embassies obviously, but it does mean we shouldn't just write this all off as the actions of nutcases. The actions themselves are nuts, but the underlying reasons that they are reacting to are pretty serious and spreading.

Not so ironically, many of the muslims in Italy and Greece are from Albania.

They are the same "color" as the locals who like to dress up, play "anarchist," and sneak back to their parents' place before sunrise.

I think you're on your own pushing the muslim angle.

GJ,

Things have ben worse in the 60's and 70's. Any time of economic woes brings out the tensions. I was amused at a French politician showing bewilderment at the hike in crime....

...desperate people do desperate things.
