In this context, we at the beginning of last week had the opportunity to read about the looting of the University of Basra. After the raids „vandals,“ as the crowd called rabující dean of the University Džabar Abd al-Khalifa, left plundered libraries and halls. Computers, air conditioners, but the chairs and benches, all your problems away without rabující. Soldiers and tanks of the British Army's battle weary suburban slowly adopted the role of guard, its units can then be placed primarily to hospitals and banks. The crowd eventually plundered room doused with kerosene and lit. It is interesting how little talk about the causes of an unprecedented escalation of violent looting in Iraqi cities. There is, however, wonder. It's anarchy is what dominates the street, but the Western-type liberalism. Liberalism is a doctrine based on principles of individualism, equality, market economy, representative democracy and the minimal state. The central values ​​of liberalism is freedom, which ends up where it begins with the freedom of another individual. Unless there is no mention of morality or ethics. Of course, it is forbidden to steal foreign assets. However, if there is no coercive apparatus to punish any violations, because there is no state ownership of political representation is quite natural that people take what they, as descendants of the owner – the state is. What is happening these days in Iraq is not anarchy (anarchists want a strong role of trade unions, decentralization of power, antimilitarimus, solidarity and social control system instead of a repressive state apparatus), in Iraq we are witnessing the painful birth of Western democracy, which does not recognize and ignore other values than that measured by the freedom of your property. It is hard to see a development of civil society without the existence of a functioning internal market. We will see domination of oil and other corporations feeding people selling their own countries (oil). Let us return to the premises of the University. On the walls hang photos of Saddam's, meet in the corridors of Saddam's statue intact. Who long as students have met. The so-called freedom is established by their university repaired.
