I personally feel the worldwide civil unrest now unfolding is a result of social engineering. I don't think it's incidental that today we have people uprising against "the system" in numerous countries. It was meant to be this way.

When you have two of the most powerful men on earth being Trump and Johnson who in reality should have no more responsibility than a box of crayons who openly lie to their public then there is going to be some kick back. But we've all heard that old saying out of chaos comes order....well this is the beginning of the chaos.

Religion and politics are now in the process of being systematically dismantled.

I think it's more than coincidental that both of these tracks were released at the same time. One for the American market and the other for the British/European market. Both appear to be forecasting today's very events.


your so right, and these sorts of music videos have been going on for a few years now, pretty much every musician has a video where there is rioting or riot police, even beyonce at the superbowl, had a black panther/ riot police theme.
it seems the riot police theme is very fashionable at the moment, even advertising has got into the act, just look at that pepsi add with one of those kardashian women

Yes, laws, that help people know what is right and wrong
Let's ignore that there's a lot of things that are legal, but immoral. Do you really need a law to tell you something is wrong?

and what the punishment will be for breaking the law..
Punishment for breaking the law isn't set in stone. "Justice" is often determined by the lawyer you're able to afford.


doesn’t mean you can’t break it just means that you’ll be punished if you do
You'll be punished if you get caught. And if you don't have a good lawyer.

and is supposed to keep civility in the world.
You don't need law to keep civility. You need civility. And civility has nothing to do with the law in the first place... You also seem to be unaware that an anarchist community wouldn't be lawless. There would still be rules; if you toke someone's person possessions without permission, or killed, or raped people wouldn't say "oh, we live in an anarchist community, so all that stuff is okay". They would say "so how do we want to deal with this ,as a community". Anarchism, as a political idealogy, isn't chaos.

Reading about the countries facing severe economic crises (and therefore mass protests), it's apparent that flawed capitalist economic policies are to blame. By their governments aligning themselves with the US, the IMF, and financialisation schemes in general, the population is being asked to bear the burden of increasing debt that is impossible to repay. Another common feature in these failed economies the soaring gap between the rich and poor.

Look up the term "neoliberal policies" attached to some of these different protests and the story is the same.

The Limits of Neoliberal Policies in Post-Civil War Lebanon

"Indeed, throughout his time as prime minister, Hariri preached the same neoliberal rhetoric of Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher and other like-minded neoliberals in theWest (most notably, former French President Jacques Chirac, who openly supported Hariri’s economic policies). In particular, he preached the neoliberal idea that the state should be transformed and its role reduced in both society and economy...

...In line with this, Hariri stressed the importance of facilitating the role of the market unconstrained from state measures to foster more intensive reconstruction practices. He therefore believed that relaxing regulations,delegating public tasks and responsibilities to private actors, and changing the institutional environment in ways that accommodate the needs of the private sector, were collectively needed."

Bolivian coup led by Christian fascist paramilitary leader and multi-millionaire- with foreign support

"The events that precipitated the resignation of Morales were indisputably violent. Right-wing opposition gangs attacked numerous elected politicians from the ruling leftist MAS party. They then ransacked the home of President Morales, while burning down the houses of several other top officials. The family members of some politicians were kidnapped and held hostage until they resigned. A female socialist mayor was publicly tortured by a mob.

Following the forced departure of Morales, coup leaders arrested the president and vice president of the government’s electoral body, and forced the organization’s other officials to resign. Camacho’s followers proceeded to burn Wiphala flags that symbolized the country’s Indigenous population and the plurinational vision of Morales.

The Organization of American States, a pro-US organization founded by Washington during the Cold War as an alliance of right-wing anti-communist countries in Latin America, helped rubber stamp the Bolivian coup. It called for new elections, claiming there were numerous irregularities in the October 20 vote, without citing any evidence. Then the OAS remained silent as Morales was overthrown by his military and his party’s officials were attacked and violently forced to resign.

The day after, the Donald Trump White House enthusiastically praised the coup, trumpeting it as a “significant moment for democracy,” and a “strong signal to the illegitimate regimes in Venezuela and Nicaragua.”
