The military-industrial-humanitarian complex: Western hegemony spread by virtue signalling?

 

The terms ‘humanitarian’ and ‘democracy’ were once used to describe honourable behaviour and just causes. Now they have become contenders, along with science, socialism and liberal for the dubious honour of being the most abused words in the English language, routinely deployed to justify politically motivated acts of aggression which lead to death and destruction.
Words such as ‘humanitarian’ and ‘democracy’ have acquired a darker and more cynical meaning following their misappropriation to justify the invasion of sovereign nations, effect regime change and promote the spread of Western military, economic and cultural dominance around the world. The mainstream media and many human rights activists, assist these ventures by broadcasting and publishing propagandised news and by tapping into negative emotions such as fear and outrage to soften public opinion and make interference in the political affairs of sovereign states appear justified.
If you remember 2001 and the lies of western politicians and media about Saddam Hussein’s Weapons of Mass Destruction, supposedly capable of being deployed against western targets within 45 minutes, the strategy was used to swing public opinion behind the US / EU / NATO push for a war that would rid them of a maverick leader.  The public were deceived into accepting the invasion through attention-grabbing headlines crafted to abhor readers with ‘evidence’ of Saddam’s butchery and to generate strong emotional reactions which would cause people to think with their hearts rather than their heads.
One story was written by UK Labour MP Ann Clwyd, and published by the one time newspaper of record The Times  two days before the US-led Coalition of the Willing began pounding Iraq’s cities and infrastructure with carpet bombing attacks. Clwyd claimed that Saddam had demonstrated a ‘human-shredding machine’ into which adversaries were fed and reduced to fish food. It is of course a variation on a scence in the Coen brothers film Fargo in which a wood shredder is used to render a corpse unidentifiable.
The article, under the title “See men shredded, then say you don’t back war” was quoted by other newspapers and by TV and radio news and caused readers to feel revulsion towards Saddam and his regime, and made the anti-war lobby appear sympathetic to a murderous regime dubbed by one tabloid, “The Butchers Of Bagdhad,” and indifferent to the plight of the Iraqi people. The story was challenged by anti – war campaigners and no evidence of such a device has been found. And for the record Saddam was supported by more than half of Iraquis, a popularity he achieved by the simple expedient of using a significant proportion of his country’s oil revenues to provide generous welfare payments.

The Iraqi dictator was certainly no angel, but he did manage to keep down the extremist elements in his country ,and of course, his removal by the the western military powers, USA , UK and France (The FUKUS axis,) facilitated the rise of ISIS some years later. Saddam’s real crimes were well known to US and NATO intelligence services, who kept him informed about the locations of Iranian troops during the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s, in the knowledge that he would use mustard gas and sarin against them.

The US also provided Saddam with cluster bombs and helped him acquire chemical precursor agents. US-based Human Rights Watch estimated that Saddam killed at least 290,000 of his own people while in power.  However, this figure is dwarfed by the number of Iraqis believed to have died in the aftermath of the 2003 invasion, due to occupation forces, sectarian violence or ISIS – this figure is estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands, if not in excess of a million.

The psychological shock-and-awe strategy was again employed in the lead up to NATO’s bombing of Libya, as the US and UK’s on-off relationship with Gaddafi took a turn for the worse after he planned to start selling oil in dinars (a new gold-backed pan-African currency) instead of US dollars or euros, and encouraged his African neighbors to follow suit.

The release of emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server in late 2015, just as the 2016 election campaign was getting under way revealed that such a move would have strengthened African economies and led to competition between the dinar and the dollar or euro. In fact there is in progress now a move led by Russia and China to dump the US$ as reserve currency and move to a system of settling cross border trades in the vendors currency. And earlier this year, China launched the Petroyuan, a gold-backed contract for trading oil futures, on the Shanghai stock & commodity exchange. So old Mad Dog Muammar was just unfortunate enough to be ahead of the game when he had no powerful allies to back him up.

On this occasion, we were treated to the excuse that bombing Libya and supporting the anti-Gaddafi rebels, including Al-Qaeda-affiliated elements, was necessary as Gaddafi was about to commit a massacre against the people of the rebel-controlled city of Benghazi. Another emotive claim designed to mould public opinion into accepting the war affirmed that Gaddafi was giving his soldiers Viagra so they could commit mass rape. An investigation by Amnesty International found no evidence to support this allegation and revealed that on several occasions anti-Gaddafi forces in Benghazi had made false allegations or manufactured evidence of human rights violations.

Without any sense of irony American, European and British politicians and the media now try to justify censorship of news and opinion, seeking to justify this illiberal and undemocratic activity by claiming it is necessary to silence those who spread ‘fake news’. Do we really believe governments and the media are going to censor themselves? Do we believe Google are suddenly going to cease and desist from suppressing factual information and opinions critical of their cronies in Washington? Do we believe Facebook are going to remove the globalist bias from their algorithms and give equal prominence to news and ideas that do not support Zuckerberg’s world domination agenda? Do we look as though we were born yesterday?

The concern of governments and their corporate friends about fake news is that with the rise of new media real news will leak out into the public domain and expose the fact that governments have been feeding us fake news since the modern era began with the protestant reformation.

The Birth Of Cultural Marxism

the daily stirrer
Karl Marx

Over the past week politicians, academics along with showbiz and media luvvies have been falling over themselves to celebrate the 150th Anniversay of Karl Marx. When we consider the misery inflicted on humanity by supporters of his ideology we really must ask why this stupid man is celebrated rather than being demonised.

Wherever the economic and social dogmas or Marxism have become part of a government program the results have been disastrous. Dissidents and free thinkers, members of religious groups and political opponents have been slaughtered while innocents have died by the million in famines and epidemics, they result of a politcal ideology that has no understanding of human nature causing the infrastucture to grind to a halt.

And yet people continue to advocate Marxism as a solution to the world’s problems, claiming: “It wasn’t done properly in the Soviet Union, Communist China, Castro’s Cuba, Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge, Vietnam, East Germany, Hungary, Poland etc. Do they mean I wonder, that for Marxism to work there needs to be more government control, more social engineering, more curtailment of civil rights and suppression of individual freedom.

Alestair McLeod of GoldMoney.com gives the sane view on Marx

Commerzbank, Mozilla, Suspend Facebook Ad Campaigns As Advertisers Start Pulling Out

As we reported yeserday, the backlash against Facebook over the Cambridge Analytics data harvesting story continues to grow. At first it seemed fairly innocuous, some crazy scientist had developed an app that tricked people into granting access to their personal details and activity records. Then it emerged that even though the guy had been naughty, claiming he was collecting datas for research, when in fact his plan was to sell the database to commercial outfits, for which he should have paid Facebook a fee for using their site.

Then it dawned on people that although Cambridge Analytics, which bought the unethically obtained data was being demonised in mainstream media because they numbered among their clients Donald Trump;s 2016 campaign and the Leave campaign in the british EU referendum campaign, but in fact what they did was what facebook’s business is built on, all those quizzes, tests, memes, like buttons etc. are about commecting personal data without users being aware of what is going on. And that started a public backlash (which we reported yesterday).

Now the blight has spread to advertisers: first it was Mozilla, now Germany’s Commerzbank has also suspended a Facebook advertising campaign, Unilever is in the process of pulling what’s left of its campaigns after announcing last year that Facebook adverts were not effective and several agencies have announced their clients will no longer use the platform.

“Brand safety and data security are very important to us”, German daily Handelsblatt quotes Commerzbank brand management chief Uwe Hellmann as saying. “We want to give ongoing investigations enough space, and decide how to proceed at an appropriate time.”

Just a week ago, before the scandal story broke, Commerzbank had launched a large-scale image campaign, which was planned to be broadcast on selected TV channels as well as online, including on Facebook. The campaign is tied to a repositioning of the Frankfurt company’s brand.

Facebook advertisers have threatened to abandon the platform in the wake of the massive data harvesting scandal which began after it was revealed that an app created by two psychologists gathered data on over 50 million Americans and then sold it to political data firm Cambridge Analytics and several others, who used it without consent.

Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder and CEO of the social media giant and a well know world domination wannabe gave several creepy interviews Wednesday after spending three days in hiding, ostensibly with a crisis management team which advised him not give wholly unsatisfactory answers to one of the largest data breaches in history. Naturally the answers he gave questioners were totally unsatisfactory, and were also not believed because Zuckerberg and his company have a track record of priomising one thing and doing the opposite.

ISBA, a British group of advertisers that spend hundreds of millions of pounds a year on Facebook, demanded answers. It is understood that some of the 3,000 brands it handles, which include those of the consumer goods companies Unilever and P&G, will not tolerate association with Facebook if it emerges that users’ data has found its way into the hands of brokers and political campaigners without authorisation. Sources close to the trade body said that if the company’s answers were unsatisfactory, advertisers might spend their money elsewhere. ISBA will meet Facebook executives this week.

Other major clients, such as Mozilla, the the Firefox browser company, have already pulled out, or as a spokesperson said, have “pressed pause” on Facebook advertising. In a scathing post, Mozilla said that “when Facebook takes stronger action in how it shares customer data, specifically strengthening its default privacy settings for third party apps, we’ll consider returning.” Until then, “Mozilla will advertise elsewhere.”

Facebook knows a great deal about Mozilla’s two billion users, perhaps more intimate information than any other company does. They know everything we click and like on their site, and know who our closest friends and relationships are, because despite its denials, Facebook is known to install tracking cookies on the device of anyone who visits a page with a Facebook ‘like’ button. Because of its scale, Facebook has become one of the most convenient platforms to reach an audience for all companies and developers, whether a multibillion corporation or a not-for-profit.

It is believed that Facebook took steps to limit developer access to friends’ data beginning in 2014, but can any=thing Facebook reveals about its business be trusted (sic)?. When we consider the assurance was given after Facebook started its relationship with Cambridge University Professor Aleksandr Kogan, whose decision to share data he collected from Facebook with Cambridge Analytica is behind the current scandal.

We believe still more will be revealed about Facebook’s lax attitude to privacy and ethics, for example its current default settings leave access open to a lot of data – particularly with respect to settings for third party apps.

Meanwhile, Facebook shares continue to slide – falling approximately 8.6% in three trading sessions and down again on Thursday premarket as investors – particularly “ethical” investment funds – reconsider their decision to hold the increasingly toxic company.

Italian Town ‘Taken Over’ By Nigerian Migrant Gangs

The former seaside resort town of Castel Volturno, to the north of Naples, has reportedly been taken over by Nigerian gangs who run drug and prostitution rings. The town has a total population of around 30,000 people, of which an estimated 20,000 are migrants, many of them in Italy illegallly, French news magazine L’Obs reports.

Many of the Nigerian women who walk the streets as prostitutes offering sexual favours for as little as 5 to 15 euros along the Via Domitiana by the sea are underage. The pimps who the girls work for do not care, they know EU policy make it very difficult for dark skinned people to be prosecuted. Rampant petty crime and violence in the city has led to journalists wanting to write about the town requiring police escorts for their own safety.

The current Italian government, which is seeking re-election on March 4th, has signed a 21-million euro package to increase security in towns like Castel Volturno and offer integration programmes for migrants. The government is pro EU and supports the open borders policy which has caused problems throughout Europe due to uncontrolled immigration.

The mayor of Castel Volturno, Dimitri Russo, said the government’s measures will not be enough to stem the rising tide of crime. Russo said that the problem was that the city was no longer dealing with an organised traditional mafia but many gangs of “predatory” criminal migrants who bring the lawlessness of the third world to Europe.

Even well established African residents of the town have started to complain about the mass migration of illegals into the town and the problems it is causing. A resident named Martin commented: “We live in an abandoned place, we cannot accept all these people because we do not have the strength or the means to educate them. We are not in Africa, but in a civilized country, and these people need to be educated.”

It is unclear how many illegal migrants live in Italy, but former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has said the number is as high as 600,000. Berlusconi promised to deport at least 600,000 illegals if his party wins the upcoming national election, while his coalition partner and leader of the populist Lega party Matteo Salvini has made a similar promise.

The numbers of migrants trying to cross from the Libya on the coast of north Africa to one of the EU’s southern nations is increasing. Europe’s impoverished southern nations can’t cope. And in the better off nations of northern Europe immigration is a toxic issue which is fuelling the rise of anti EU parties from France to Finnland in the north and Hungary in the east. What can be done?

If this is the age of victimhood, then there are no larger (and more recognised) victim groups than gender and racial minorities.

My race (and certain other traits) put me firmly in the “victim minority” bracket—well, if you ignore the horribleness of my maleness. I should clarify that I don’t see myself in those terms. But so strong is the wave of desire to identify and deify victims, that *some* people in everyday life insist on interacting with me as a member of a victim class. They mean well.

I’ve resorted to spending more time than I’d like thinking about these terms—if only so I can find ways of ridding myself of them. And I have found a couple.

But of all the illogicalities that have emerged from the degeneration of political (and politicised) discourse, the biggest one (to me) is the exaltation of subjectivity.

This is the idea that an individual’s feelings on matters with universal consequences, are more important that the construction of universally comprehensible and verifiable standards.

This is the biggest illogicality because it imposes the expectation that everyone, everywhere should get along and hold hands… while assaulting, in sadomasochistic fashion, the only mechanism which can allow them to do so—objectivity.

This is not just a conceptual problem and I’ll illustrate that with a practical example.

Everywhere I look, I see stats about how there are either too many black people or too few of us in whatever state of existence we’ve decided is topical. There are stats about how few women there are in STEM and a cherry-picked list of desirable professions. There’s the inexplicably persistent gender pay gap narrative, which has been repeatedly debunked by such sexist publications as Harvard (a female professor at Harvard, to be specific) and Forbes (in an article written by another female academic).

And Thomas Sowell (a black economist) has been admonishing the western world since the 80s, about the inaccuracies (and dangerousness) of the way we dishonestly politicise disparities in income and opportunity, across race and gender.

But I digress… because I don’t have a problem with these statistics, nor am I even here (solely) to debate their validity.

It’s what we—humans—do with these statistics that really bothers me. We abuse them with this new-found exaltation of subjectivity.

We turn victimhood into a mechanism for attaining disproportionately large power, then do what humans do best when we wield too much power—abuse it.

So, we say, My subjective reality is that white people are racist and evil, therefore the fact there aren’t more black CEOs *must be* the fault of white people.”

Or we say, My subjective reality is that all men are all evil, rapey gorillas, so the fact that there aren’t more women in STEM *must be* the fault of men.”

Even ignoring that in all these conversations, never have I seen a causal chain constructed (let alone a causal link established)… there’s still a huge inconsistency in how these ideas evolve.

To prove that [INSERT MINORITY GROUP] would achieve a perfectly even 50/50 split of opportunities, were it not for the interference of [INSERT MAJORITY OPPRESSOR], we pretend there’s perfect uniformity across groups.

We proclaim that gender and race are social constructs, completely removed from science and reality.

Women, men and people of different races are perfectly uniform in all abilities, interests and aptitudes. This is an incredibly subjective stance to take… but let’s entertain it for a minute.

If this were true, then there’d be absolutely no need for diversity. If we are all uniform, then we are all interchangeable.

This is an exemplary case of mutual exclusivity. Either we are all different, therefore we need a good mix to capitalise on unique qualities… or we’re all the same, and each human possesses the same abilities to the same degree of competence as every other human.

If we acknowledge diversity, we *must* also acknowledge lack of uniformity. And if we acknowledge lack of uniformity, we *must* also acknowledge inequalities of ability.

The mistake we make is that our prejudices cause us to value some abilities more than others—and we are simplistic enough to assume that being less skilled in these abilities makes people less valuable too.

For example, no one would bat an eyelid were I to suggest that the average height of Dutch people is greater than the average height of Senegalese people. But swap height for beauty, IQ or some other politically charged subject and the reaction completely changes—because human prejudices cause us to assume “beauty” and “IQ” are more valuable (or humanising) qualities than height.

This prejudice manifests itself in other unhealthy ways which I will cover later.

But I like to ask myself, “What if I’m wrong?” So, I did and I could find only one potentially credible criticism.

That criticism is that diversity isn’t about biological composition and abilities. It’s about cultures and communal experiences, and how those shape individuals.

This is an idea I like… but if this is the case, shouldn’t we be encouraging people to fixate less on the artificial constructs of gender and race—aka the “patriarchy” and the “white devil”? Both follow arbitrarily biological lines of categorisation and represent a hypocritical stance by those who claim things like race and gender shouldn’t be used to judge others. Surely, the shared experience of the human condition supersedes both? Surely, the lesson is that all humans (male or female, white or non-white, heterosexual or homosexual etc.) tend to abuse power when they wield too much of it?

If race and gender are social constructs, are the problems we see in the world not more likely to be borne of human nature—rather than “white nature” or “male nature” or any other selectively defined nature?

And do the solutions to these problems not lie in our ability to find connections, based on shared human experiences and struggles, which traverse cultures and communities?

Yet, it was James Damore’s position that women, as a group (not at an individual level) tend to have different interests from men, which got him fired. He didn’t say the interests held by women are inferior to those held by men—simply that they are different.

It’s funny because firing James Damore seemed to me a highly “patriarchal” move. It proved that Google believes the interests that are most likely to be held by men are more valuable than the interests that are more likely to be held by women. Therefore, the only way to argue that women (as a group) are as valuable as men is to argue that women are the same as men.

This is a sad conclusion because it encourages women to value themselves based on how identical they are to men.

This is symptomatic of a general move in society. We push groups identified as being marginalised to measure their value based on how identical they are to groups which are considered to be unfairly free of marginalisation.

Equality has been (wrongly) conflated with uniformity.

Similarly, Apple’s diversity officer lost her job because she dared to suggest that a group of white men can still be diverse. Is whiteness so overpowering now, that it completely nullifies every other aspect of a person’s existence? Their nationality? Their sexuality? Their socio-economic background? Their religious background? Their philosophical background?

In an age when we bemoan the paucity of women in top jobs at tech companies, should the expression of a logical opinion in a measured manner be a sackable offence? Especially for one of the few talented women (out of countless others) who’s bucked the trend of female underrepresentation?

Subjectivity has been given such supremacy that the popular positions on gender and race are so riddled with inconsistencies that they suggest:

  1. Race and gender are social constructs which have no basis in biology or science
  2. Yet we must have perfectly uniform race and gender diversity across the most desirable occupations, because race and gender are important variables in these equations
  3. This is because people of different races and genders bring different experiences and perspectives to the table
  4. Yet we must never talk about the fact that different people are inclined towards different experiences, and that this shapes who they are—especially if talking about this distracts from “white guilt”

But why does this all matter—why play this game of semantics?

Because the are real problems in the world, which need real solutions. I’m going to shun political correctness and talk about those problems.

Incarceration rates among black people in western societies are high. Women are underrepresented in high-paying jobs (though this is not the same as a gender pay gap)—and we mustn’t forget that men are overrepresented in jobs where people are most likely to die. Rape is too high—I won’t quote stats because I don’t care if there’s one rape a year, that’s still too many. Mental health problems take many lives every year—especially men’s. Young, working class men represent (arguably) the most economically under-privileged group in the UK.

And these are just a few of the problems we face.

Any good scientist (or problem solver) will tell you that to change an outcome, you must first accurately diagnose its cause. If you try to affect the wrong cause, you will not reverse the negative outcome.

This is why I’m so opposed to the politicisation of these issues. When we politicise them, people stop looking for answers and start looking for scapegoats. Throw the exaltation of subjectivity into the mix and you get a recipe for obscurantism and ego tripping.

Meanwhile, people are still suffering the very real consequences of these problems.

This is not a game where the blacks win and the whites lose, or the women win and the men lose. It’s a reality where we all win or lose together—because there’s only one Earth and we *all* have to share it.

It may well turn out, upon thorough investigation, that men and white people are to blame for 90% of the world’s problems… but we currently have no proof, just feelings. So, thorough investigation must come nonetheless.

Even in English criminal law, the condemnation of one person requires the accumulation of near-insurmountable evidence. You generally need actus reus (proof that a criminal act was committed) and mens rea (proof that the accused wilfully committed said criminal act). That means if I slip and accidentally knock a person dead, I can’t be guilty of murder (there’s no mens rea).

Yet, we so casually condemn entire groups of people?

And, to be clear, I have no political or social affiliations. This article does not exist to support one cause at the expense of the other. I think the left wing is just as full of shit as the right wing. I judge people on an individual-to-individual basis. I don’t care if you’re white, black, straight, genderqueer, conservative, liberal, nationalistic or anarchistic—if you show me kindness and openness, I will do the same.

But I find it funny that our desire for labels is so strong, we’ve labelled those who disagree with the adoption of labels . They call us “centrists”, as a slight… people who are too spineless to “pick a side”, I guess. As if we’re somehow in-between this stupid, unworkable idea and that other stupid, unworkable idea.

I’m not a centrist. I’m saying I’m not even on the same spectrum. The damn thing is broken.

I’m saying when you let go of the need to be right and focus on what the world needs to get right, you might see that the answer is no one has a good enough answer yet—and

we all need to keep looking. Hard.

White South Africans Are Preparing For “Removal of All Whites Within Five Years”

Authoreed by Daniel Lang via SHTFplan.com,

Back in March, the President of South Africa made a shocking suggestion, which left many white landowners fearing that they may face a race war in the near future. In a speech, Jacob Zuma announced that he wanted the government to begin confiscating white owned lands, before redistributing them to black South Africans.

Zuma wants a “pre-colonial land audit of land use and occupation patterns” to help decide which lands need to be taken, and has said that “We need to accept the reality that those who are in parliament where laws are made, particularly the black parties, should unite because we need a two-thirds majority to effect changes in the constitution.”

 

It’s believed that Zuma is calling for this radical action in response to the rise of a rival political party known as the Economic Freedom Fighters, who have long called for the confiscation of white owned lands.

Obviously, this kind of talk doesn’t bode well for the future of South Africa. You have the leaders of the first and third most popular political parties, both of which promote socialist ideas, openly declaring that they want the government to steal from an entire racial group. Since these political parties wouldn’t be in power unless they had some degree of popular support, it’s clear that black South Africans are increasingly turning against their white neighbors. It’s a perfect recipe for genocide.

It’s conditions like that which have spawned organizations like the Suidlanders; a massive civilian-run civil defense group that is dedicated to protecting Afrikaaners in the event of social collapse or civil war. They’re currently getting ready for the possibility of a government implemented genocide of white South Africans. One of their leaders recently spoke to Infowars, and explained how they plan to respond to that threat.

Roche told Infowars that leftist South African leaders have in recent months threatened “the slaughter of all whites, and the removal of all whites within five years,” prompting Suidlanders to prepare for a surprise civil war event which they now believe is imminent.

 

“Then we would, in such an open civil war, in such a crisis, gather our people together and seek sanctuary in a remote location and then to remove ourselves from being wiped out or slaughtered,” Roche said.

However, the organization doesn’t plan to take up arms, and their best plan so far will only accommodate a minority of whites in the country.

“It’s not about taking up arms, it’s about retiring from the threat,” Roche said. “There’s this intractable tension that seems to be building in our country, where the two parties can never be reconciled, and the stronger party is openly declaring that it will remove the weaker party within five years, slaughter them all, take all of their lands.”

 

Suidlanders has a large-scale evacuation protocol in place in case an ethnic civil war happens, designed to remove roughly 20% of the estimated 4.8 million white South Africans safely from the embattled region.

It’s sad that it has come to this. Once the most wealthy and developed nation on the continent, South Africa is quickly turning into an economic basket case, brimming with racial tensions that could spill over at any time. Once again, socialism and multiculturalism have proven to be total failures.

Los Angeles Residents Fear Major Riots Are imminent, Poll Reveals

Given the current political climate in the USA after eight years of incompetence and divisive policies delivered by the Obama Administration, as well as the effect of ongoing economic conditions on the working and lower middle classes it is surprising the riots witnessed in the past few years have been relatively tame and of brief duration.

Riots in U.S. urban ghettos in the past lasted for days, with millions of dollars worth of damage done and many lives lost. That could be about to change however, According to a poll carried out among resident of Los Angeles someday soon we might ‘see the LA river flowing with much blood,’  (paraphrased from Virgil’s Aeneid.)

For the first time since the riots, there is an uptick in the number of Angelenos who fear that another civil disturbance is likely, according to a Loyola Marymount University poll that has been surveying Los Angeles residents every five years since the 1992 disturbances.

Nearly 6 out of 10 Angelenos think another riot is likely in the next five years, increasing for the first time after two decades of steady decline. That’s higher than in any year except for 1997, the first year the survey was conducted, and more than a 10-point jump compared with the 2012 survey.

The notorious 1992 LA riots were largely fueled by racial tensions. Next time, while racial divisions, depite the best efforts of the race-baiter president, Barack Hussein Obama, will only play a minor role, economic factors are likely to be the driver of civil disorder. Like a majority of Democrat run cities in the USA, Los Angeles is divided by an enormous and rapidly widening wealth gap, with unemployment and under – employment rising among low skilled groups, housing costs and other necessary expenses are crushing the lower classes.

“Economic disparity continues to increase, and at the end of the day, that is what causes disruption,” said Fernando Guerra, a political science professor who has worked on the survey since its inception.

“People are trying to get along and want to get along, but they understand economic tension boils over to political and social tension.”

Although the city’s unemployment rate last year was about half of what it was in 1992, the median income of Angelenos, when adjusted for inflation, is lower than it was around the time of the riots. Poverty rates still remain high at 22%, comparable with the years preceding the riots.

 It should be noted of course that conclusions such as those are based on the government’s fraudulent way of counting the unemployed (i.e. excluding from statistics those unemployed for 99 weeks or more)

There’s something to be said for the idea that there’s a collective unconscious. When that many people feel that violent civil unrest is a real possibility, one should take notice. These people know what their city is capable of, so I can’t help but fear that their concerns are justified.
