I may be late to the party on this one but I had to offer another perspective to contrast popular media. We have been shown a lot of terrible images on the news regarding the riots in London and while there are assholes in the world doing bad things, that is not what this is about.
What we are not hearing in the popular media is that these ‘protests’ are about the consolidation of the people to pressure governments to re-distribute the wealth of the world. Families like the Rothschilds, Rockefellers and Warburgs have trillions in assets while average people starve and struggle. I have maintained that it is super easy to grow assets when you print money out of thin air. It is a lot harder to grow assets when working from the bottom up.
The proletariat always pay the bill.
All of these protests are representations of the Peoples unrest regarding how wealth and power is distributed in the world. I do not for a second believe that re-distributing the wealth to the people will result in an uprising of global joy. We would just see a five-year spike in consumer products and then things would be back to business as usual. Maybe worse. The masses haven’t been educated as to the enormity of the system. The police and the protestors are part of the same system. The families/cartels that created and facilitate the system automatically have the advantage. The protestors and police are pawns fighting a losing game.
I cannot wait until local communities come together to love, feed one another and share gifts with each other. I know, I know… hippy bullshit.
Revolution on a global scale is not going to make things better. Especially, when the global elite you fight against controls the media and facilitates the very revolution you may think is the solution.
This is why I love the internet. But that is just my opinion.
