So I'm pretty sure this was a reaction to the 2011 England riots. I guess it still tracks that Marek would be scandalized by property damage in the news, though I've personally come to find that viewpoint naive. I digress, because this strip is really about self-satisfied political wonks, who have definitely not stopped being annoying since 2011. People at the time asked if I had a problem with taking investment bankers to task, or wanting Medicare. I just find this sort of gesture smug and impotent, and the rising power of the right has only cemented its ineffectiveness.
