Anti-Capitalist looters are not new,

America is once again seeing the animal like behavior of looters (in Louisiana); the last time America saw such a thing in the media was during the Los Angeles riots following the Rodney King verdict. Capitalists know that such behavior is wrong, but we also realize that "looters" include more than participants in a city riot. Ayn Rand noted all believers in anti-Capitalist ideas as looters. In her famous book Atlas Shrugged, the bad guys who seek to kill individualism are often identified as looters. All people who believe a strong government leads to prosperity are looters. They loot from ordinary people who believe the human spirit is the strongest helper man has. Ordinary people are what makes the world go 'round...(until the government comes and steals their wealth.)
