What is the difference between a Scottish freedom fighter in Scotland and a Libyan freedom fighter in Libya?

According to the Scotsman newspaper

TWO teenagers who admitted attempting to organise a riot in a Scottish city via Facebook by inviting others to loot shops and shoot people have each been jailed for three years.

At the time of the riots, comments the OUTlaw blog discussing the issue

…Prime Minister David Cameron said that the Government would investigate whether “it would be right to stop people communicating via [social networking websites] when we know they are plotting violence, disorder and criminality”. However, following a meeting between ministers, police and representatives of social networks, the Government said it was not looking to introduce new banning powers.

Now here’s the problem, and I don’t have an answer:

  • What is the difference between Scottish freedom fighters in Scotland and Libyan freedom fighters in Libya?
  • Will Neelie Kroes provide her newly mooted “‘Internet survival packs’ to [Scottish] activists: easy-to-use software or hardware packages which could help people to bypass censorship and counter surveillance”? (see The EU’s new ‘No Disconnect’ worldwide strategy)

    What a silly question! Rioters in Scotland cost capitalism = bad. Rioters in Libya expand capitalism = good. Money talks!
