the country's young population is ugly, aggressive, vicious, badly educated, uncouth and criminally inclined because they're marginalised

Do not waste your time on Social Questions. What is the matter with the poor is Poverty; what is the matter with the rich is Uselessness.
~George Bernard Shaw


A friend recently wrote the following about the riots in the U.K. While it is easy to just say it is a criminal element, it is more, it is the social breakdown and disenfranchisement of the poor and lower classes.
"I've also been closely following the riots in London, Manchester and elsewhere in
Britain. Frankly it comes as no surprise to me and my fellow Mancunians
when I see what is happening. These recent incidents appear to be a
backhanded tribute to the long-term intellectual torpor, moral cowardice,
incompetence and careerist opportunism of the British political and
intellectual class.
For years, politicians of all parties but especially those with a Tory
bent, have somehow managed not to notice what has long been apparent to
anyone who has taken a short walk with his eyes open down any British city
street: that a considerable proportion of the country's young population
is ugly, aggressive, vicious, badly educated, uncouth and criminally
inclined because they're marginalised. British youth leads the Western
world in almost all aspects of social pathology, from teenage pregnancy to
drug taking, from drunkenness to violent criminality. In many northern
constituencies, British kids are much likelier to have a television in
their bedroom than a father living at home. One-third of them never eat a
meal at a table with another member of their household and 'family' is not
the word for the social arrangements of the people in the areas from which
the rioters mainly come. So this is what happens. And it's going to get
worse if the British National Party (neo-nazi racists) get involved and
play the immigrant/race card."
