Exclamation Thin veneer of civilization, part 2

Quote :
Rioting, looting, burning down stores and shooting police officers – is this about to become the “new normal” in America? What we just witnessed happen in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri is a prime example of how quickly the streets of America can descend into chaos.

There is so much anger and frustration in this country, especially among our young people, that all it takes is a “trigger event” to spark a wildfire. ...

It doesn't take a natural disaster or loss of the power grid or even a sale on the newest Nikes. Revolution against the police state can do it too.

Watching societal devolution occur in real time over in Missouri has brought some unpleasant thoughts from the back of my mind to the forefront. As much as I don't like to admit, I am quite worried about my little town when TSHTF. The natives around here are on edge as well, having been fleeced of anything resembling money by the PTB, and relegated to the back of the jobs bus. Many more folks are unemployed than the government cares to report, as many as 12 percent around these parts, making for a very restless bunch of twenty something men and women.

Don't get me wrong here, these folks are the very same people I would see working for a living wage on one of the three bases around here, only they are now laid off on a permanent basis with few alternatives left to pursue beyond menial employment for a fraction of their former wages. The jealousy is palpable and the fury just under the surface. I quite expect to have a Ferguson of our own if shit doesn't turn around soon.

A man can only take just so much. Everyone has their breaking point.

An empty stomach is a very dangerous thing.

I'm not sure if there was much veneer here to start with.

Maybe if it wasn't so dark in there, they wouldn't all be fighting.

Desperation is a cruel motivator.
