Brilliant as ever - Zoe Williams

Guardian columnist Zoe Williams explains who puts the demo in democracy. This sort of continues the theme from the last post, from another vantage point. She concentrates on the ways that "democratic" authorities use clever tricks to control the outcomes of popular movements.
"The real intention behind this endlessly name-checked democracy/protest dyad is to tap the conviction of the protesters for some kind of warped endorsement of the very system they are protesting against. If protest is part of democracy, and democracy has given us this government, then hey, guys, we're really all on the same side."
Very incisive piece; go read it.
