Violently Protesting for Peace

I just have to shake my head. Again, at global government meetings, you have so-called "anarchists" who are demonstrating for their concept of peace and justice, which seems to include violence. But violence doesn't cause people to say "Hey, my government is engaging in violence. I must want less government". No, they say "Hey, my government isn't going enough to stop the violence. I should give them more power (money and privilege) so that they can keep these protesters in line."

It's like shooting yourself in the foot to promote foot health, to mix a metaphor.
