I’ve been mentioning for well over a year now expect the violence to increase and take a sharp turn upward. Most of you who follow my blog already know I rarely put dates, times, percentages or amounts in the same sentence. Timing and severity are two subjects I find nearly impossible to predict with any sort of accuracy. As the situation unfolds there are just too many factors that can alter these aforementioned areas and thus render the prediction completely inaccurate.
However what can be stated with a steadfast amount of surety is which directions we’re headed in and what will suffice by traveling down those paths… it’s the dates, degrees, percentages and amounts that are really anyone’s best guess (including mine). In case you haven’t noticed much of the world is currently experiencing this “sharp turn upward” as I’m composing this post. Western media isn’t giving the current situations over in the Ukraine, Venezuela, Italy, France, Spain the entire middle east anywhere near the coverage that it should. Personal note the Ukraine is the one to be watching with dire concern but that’s for another post.
What I’ve always done is mention what my research reveals and keep my personal thoughts out. Just research because same as anyone else my personal thoughts cause me to lean one direction or the other and that my friend’s is for you to decide.
I will reiterate one more time in late 2015 to middle 2016 be very careful of the severe uptick in violence… violence appearing in the U.S. Just as mentioned in prior posts. Watch out over in Europe as what’s escalating there will be arriving to the U.S. shores in the not too distant future… it has to…sorry to much fact supports it. None of this is my personal thoughts. You might not like them or even agree with them but the one thing facts cannot do is lie. Facts don’t lie!!!
I’ve already mentioned several times in past posts that the U.S. will see a spike that resembles a hockey stick graph scenario in violence and you be well suited to be ready for it or away from it…but then again no right or wrong it all boils down to choices…it’s all about choices.
When a once prosperous nation… a since spoiled nation that’s taken it for granted that they have the birth right to consume the world’s resources without the slightest remorse… well adjusting’s going to be a bitch… again fact not feeling so don’t kill the messenger. A nation supporting less than 5 percent of world population, the U.S. uses one-third of the world’s paper, a quarter of the world’s oil, 23 percent of the coal, 27 percent of the aluminum, and 19 percent of the copper. Per capita the U.S. use of energy, metals, minerals, forest products, fish, grains, meat, and even fresh water dwarfs that of any other nation in the developed world…fact not feelings. In fact for a nation that represents 5% of the population yet produces 50% of the world’s solid waste that fact by itself is nothing short of a pathetic misuse of resources. The adjustment of life style for such a spoiled nation will be unmeasurable.
As with anything there’s always two sides to the coin. The U.S. does lead the rest of the world in several other areas besides consumption and producing solid waste. The U.S. far outranks any other nation in the use of mind altering drugs…drugs that cause the users to react with extreme violence and unpredictable mood swings. The U.S. also finishes first in the percentage of its citizens being incarcerated. One more of many the U.S. has the most heavily armed citizens of any other nation.
Don’t get me wrong I’m all for the right to bear arms but lets think a bit deeper for a moment and perhaps reveal the underlying bigger picture. Unstable psychotropic drug dependent people + automatic weapons = ??? By the way it’s hovering just under 70% of the U.S. population that is currently on at least one of these dangerous drugs. Don’t forget now they start feeding them to the kids in elementary school. An M&M’s party has a whole new meaning these days. So ask yourself this question. What kind of oil/water recipe for disaster might that turn out to be. Angry crazed unstable people that are heavily armed with automatic weapons, Hum???
Some may be thinking that I’ve already touched on a few possible points for what starts violence to spread throughout a nation but I haven’t… at least not yet. You can have a nation of spoiled citizens… and that’s fine as long as they continue to be spoiled. Equally you can have a nation where the majority of its citizens are addicted to psychotropic drugs in fact any drugs heroin crack meth it doesn’t matter as long as they continue to be able to obtain their fix and they’ll be no real violence. None of the above examples are what starts revolution or violence to engulf within a nation. The above examples are what demoralizes a nation not what starts the internal violence within a nation. Read on and you’ll discover the root cause of all internal violence within nations and the U.S. will certainly be no exception to this rule. In fact the opposite is true as it’s already happened several times prior.
Whether the triggering point seems to stem from Government, the corporate sector or any special interest group the same rule always holds true. As long as the citizens remain fat and happy ain’t nothing going to happen. The unconditional primer for all internal revolution within a nation is Corruption. It’s not Government but rather corruption in Government that’s the underbelly core cause that sparks revolution. Corruption is the fuel.
Corruption is what causes the simmering embers beneath the surface to erupt and over time become a raging inferno. These embers simmered unnoticed for decades as the process is gradual. It spreads one coal at a time but it always ends up being the corruption that sparks Government to turn against its own people…every time. When people feel they have nothing left to forfeit and that feeling of hopelessness sets in… more so when parents observe it consuming their children’s lives THEN it explodes and there’s your violence. Still it was the previous decades of unnoticed corruption that over time slowly robbed the quality of life so hence is the real causing factor. Corruption is the culprit.
Decades of corruption will eventually intensify into a political skirmish of one sort or another but it’s always based on the need of Governments to maintain their power and control which in turn is done through corruption. Governments will always fire upon their own citizens if or when that point of no return arrives. You’d be a fool to think your nation won’t as it already has several times with in its mere 235 plus year history.
In the end it’s all about control and power. All the rest of it is nothing more than a glorified dog and pony show to keep the masses entertained. The process may be a gradual one. History proves this to be correct… but in the end revolution and violence within a nation always ends up the same way. The Government against the people and always ignited through decades of corruption.
So the point I’ve attempted to make should be very clear. Sure it will escalate into a political confrontation of sorts as that’s just part of the show but the initial spark stems from corruption… always has and always will. Governments are concerned with only two things. The first is control and the second is power. Nothing else matters. As long as we the people keep this current system in place clinging to our illusion that voting another representative into power to replace the previous representative that again failed miserably nothing’s going to change. Like I previously said “ain’t nothing gonna happen.” Instead it will only keep repeating as history proves me to be correct. Sometime the hardest thing to do in life is to know which bridge you cross and which bridge you burn. Until next time this is Barry in DR.
