Economic Riots coming to America

with 6 comments

For a long time, there have been those that have warned that economic riots are coming to this nation.  Anger and frustration with the economy and with our financial system have grown to unprecedented levels, and this has fueled the rise of the various protest movements that we have seen over the last couple of years.  People are fed up and they want solutions.  Unfortunately, anger and frustration can express themselves in dangerous and unpredictable ways.

What we have seen in Oakland, in Seattle and in other major U.S. cities this week is only just the beginning of the assive economic riots that are coming to this country.  Yes, “anarchists” were responsible for quite a bit of the violence that we have seen this week, but they were not the only ones involved.  Some protesters were getting violent too, and there has also been quite a bit of police brutality.  Of course the vast majority of Occupy Wall Street protesters do not want anything to do with violence and they recognize that violence is not the answer.  But that is the thing with anger and frustration.  It is hard to contain them in neat, self-disciplined packages.  As the economy continues to get worse, the protests will grow and unfortunately so will the violence.  You can preach the benefits of non-violence all day long to  some people but they just will not get it.  America has reached a turning point,  and what we are seeing now is only just the beginning of the madness.  In the years ahead we are going to see rioting that is going to be absolutely
unprecedented.

  1. Hi, you used to write exceptional articles, but the last several posts have been kinda lackluster I miss your super writing. Past couple of posts are just slightly out of track!

  3. Skip – I too agree with you. People are deeply frustrated yet destroying other people’s business is really not the best way to show it and or get their message across – what ever it may be. The tea-party was blasted in the media and they never destroyed businesses, camped over night, fought with each other and rioted. I hope it gets better before it worse!
