      Stop charging us so much for our education! This situation is unacceptable. In response, we’re going to create massive amounts of damage to your property, costing you a great deal of money and inhibiting your ability to ask less cash of students. Take that, Machine!

      I don’t think that the purpose of a riot is to be effective. If it has a positive effect, it is a side-effect, which is to create a spectacle that epitomizes untenable nature of a situation: these otherwise reasonable people have been driven to the point of flipping out, it says. When the state-sanctioned “situation”–whatever it is–inspires a generally law-abiding citizenry to become a destructive criminal mob, the fault lies not with the mob but with the state. All riots are incited, but not by the rioters.

      In the last analysis, what has been termed a “riot,” in modern parlance, is what online social scientists, in their ineffable wisdom, considerable precision, and in their own distinctive if immature verbiage, might coin as: “pretty alt.”
