I have been thinking a lot, and I'm wondering more and more about this issue: were the London Riots phatic? That is, were they just to say that " we are here, we exist"?
Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. Teach him how to be Gay, he'll positively influence the GDP.

And also, is there any value on phatic rioting, or more generally phatic anytinhg?
