Nicholas van Hoogstraten, the repulsive insect who
uncoincidently happens to be one of Britain's richest men,
was due to be sentenced on 2nd October for his part in
killing a business rival. Already known in his home town
of Brighton for thuggish practices, and more widely for
uncompromising hostility to ramblers on his Uckfield
estate ("disgusting creatures", he once called them),
Hoogstraten is thought to be worth around £500 million.
This was amassed through property 'development' during
the 1960s and 1970s, in which he was a particularly rough
practitioner of a brutal trade.

There have been persistent rumours that a fire which
killed several inconvenient tenants in Hove was more than
a tragic accident. In the past he's called the residents of his
properties (and whose money made him rich) "filth and
scum" and said, "I fucking hate them".

Anarchists oppose the state, which means they oppose the
state's prison system. But it's only a few idealists and
dreamers who'd campaign to get people like Hoogstraten,
or his fellow millionaire Lord Archer, released. What
would happen to people like Hoogstraten in an anarchist
society? Maybe their behaviour traits wouldn't exist. Who
knows?  I don't.

This side of the revolution, I oppose the state's
prosecution apparatus. If it was in my power to do
anything about these people (which it obviously isn't), I'd
advocate a more robust and direct response to their
actions. It's only liberals and woolly reformists who'd shed
any tears for these shits.
