Demonstration Mania

Violent Demonstrations Against Trump In America

Violent Demonstrations Against Trump In America

What is it with people these days that they always want to demonstrate on the streets, smash shop windows and burn cars? Almost all demonstrations eventually turn out to be violent even though they start peacefully. I think it is because of teenagers and young men who create mayhem wherever they go because they enjoy it. The main reason for this is because their parents and schools have not taught them respect for others and their views.

Sadly, it indicates a change in mentality among the youth these days from when I was young, for we got our kicks from playing football on the streets or other innocent games, but now violence is the key word. But that is not the main reason why we have demonstrations today.

In many countries it is through dissatisfaction with the government because they seem incapable of running a country the way people want. Other times it is because they do not agree with the majority view, as in the Brexit campaign in Britain. Although the majority of people voted for Brexit, those who voted to stay in the European Union could not accept this and began demonstrating, sometimes violently, on the streets.

In America the same thing happened with the presidential election because Donald Trump won. Now the streets are full of violent demonstrations against him. No-one seems to be patient and willing to wait and see what sort of president he will be. He may be the best thing that has happened to America in generations, on the other hand he could be the worst, but people have decided not give him a chance.

When I was a young man the people were always willing to see what the next Prime Minister would do for the country. Some were good and some were bad, but you only ever found that out in time.

It is not only America and Great Britain where violent demonstrations take place, it is in the majority of countries all over the world from Hong Kong to New York. As people get more and more violent you can be sure this will mean a very difficult future for mankind. We have reached an era where those who lose cannot accept it and want to force change to their way of thinking.

Many will say we are headed for complete anarchy in the world, which will have dire consequences on the future of mankind. If we cannot live in peace with each other then what future does mankind have.

We have to start changing the way in which we educate our children. We have to impress on them that violence is not the way to live their lives, that there are rules by which we live, and violence is not one of them. We have to teach them to respect the views of another even if they do not agree, and not turn to violence. Otherwise, we will all eventually be swallowed by anarchy.
