10 Signs That Economic Riots And Civil Unrest Inside The United States Are Now More Likely Than Ever
The Economic Collapse ^ | 08/18/2011 | Michael Snyder

Posted on 08/21/2011 8:52:57 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

You should let the video footage of the wild violence that just took place in London burn into your memory because the same things are going to be happening all over the United States as the economy continues to crumble. We have raised an entire generation of young people with an "entitlement mentality", but now the economy is producing very few good jobs that will actually enable our young people to work for what they feel they are entitled to. If you are under 30 in America today, things look really bleak. The vast majority of the good jobs are held by people that are older, and they aren't about to give them up if they can help it. It is easy for the rest of us to tell young Americans to "take whatever they can", but the reality is that there is intense competition for even the most basic jobs. For instance, McDonald's recently held a "National Hiring Day" during which a million Americans applied for jobs. Only 6.2% of the applicants were hired. In the old days you could walk down to McDonald's and get a job whenever you wanted to, but now any job is precious. The frustration among our young people is palpable. Most of them feel entitled to "the American Dream" and they feel like the system has failed them. Unfortunately, many of them are already turning to violence. But the economic riots and the civil unrest that we have already seen are nothing compared to what is coming. Americans are angry, and as the economy continues to collapse that anger is going to reach unprecedented heights.

In recent days, even many in the mainstream media have been openly wondering if the riots that happened in London could happen here too. There is a growing acknowledgement that this country is headed down a very dark path.

The sad thing is that these riots accomplish absolutely nothing. The recent London riots did not create any jobs and they certainly did not solve any economic problems. Instead, they actually hurt the economy even more because a huge am0unt of property was destroyed and people are even more afraid to continue with business as usual.

But when people get to the end of their ropes, most of the time they are not thinking rationally. When frustration erupts, the results can be very, very messy.

All over the United States we are already seeing some very troubling signs of the violence that is coming. The following are 10 signs that economic riots and civil unrest inside United States are now more likely then ever....

#1 Going to the state fair used to be such a fun thing for American families to do. But now no place is safe. The following is how one local ABC News affiliate described the "flash mob" attacks that took place at the Wisconsin state fair recently....

Milwaukee police said that around 11:10 p.m., squads were sent to the area for reports of battery, fighting and property damage being caused by an unruly crowd of "hundreds" of people. One officer described it as a "mob beating."

Police said the group of young people attacked fair goers who were leaving the fair grounds. Police said that some victims were attacked while walking. They said others were pulled out of cars and off of motorcycles before being beaten.

One eyewitness said that the flash mob attacks at the Wisconsin state fair absolutely overwhelmed the limited police presence that was there....

When I saw the amount of kids coming down the road, all I kept thinking was, 'There's not enough cops to handle this.' There's no way. It would have taken the National Guard to control the number of kids that were coming off the road. They were knocking people off their motorcycles.

#2 According to a new Rasmussen survey, 48% of Americans believe that reductions in government spending are "at least somewhat likely" to result in civil unrest inside the United States. Unfortunately, perception often greatly influences reality.

#3 U.S. consumer confidence is now at its lowest level in 30 years.

#4 Joblessness among young Americans is at an epidemic level, and when rioting does break out it is usually young people that are leading the way. That is why the following statistics from an article in The Atlantic are so troubling....

One in five Americans are between 15 and 29-years old. And one in five of those Americans are unemployed. For minorities and the under-educated, the picture is much worse. Black teenagers have an unemployment rate of 44 percent, twice the rate for white teens.

#5 We are starting to see mindless violence in a lot of areas that used to be considered safe. In Kansas City on Saturday night, three young people were hit with bullets as they walked the streets of the Country Club Plaza. Mayor Sly James was about 50 yards away when the gunfire erupted. Authorities in Kansas City are considering a stricter curfew for that area.

#6 "Flash mobs" have become such a problem in Philadelphia that the mayor has imposed a strict curfew on young people. Now all teens between the ages of 13 and 18 must be indoors by 9 o'clock at night. The mayor also says that teens need to start pulling up their pants....

"Pull your pants up and buy a belt ’cause no one wants to see your underwear or the crack of your butt."

#7 All over the United States we are seeing that many struggling Americans will do just about anything for money. For example, in Detroit recently three masked men crashed a vehicle through the entrance of a gas station and took off with an entire ATM machine.

#8 Desperate people do desperate things. Many of America's "forgotten poor" are trying to survive any way that they can. For instance, a group of vagrants recently set up "a makeshift camp" near Prospect Park lake in Brooklyn. According to the New York Post, many nearby residents have been disturbed by what these "drifters" are doing to survive....

The drifters have been illegally trapping and cooking up the critters that call the park home, including squirrels, ducks and swan-like cygnets.

They used crude tactics to hunt their prey, including barbed fishing hooks that ripped off the top half of one poor gosling's beak. They then cooked the meat over illegal fires. Some of the animals were eaten raw.

#9 According to CNN, sales of safes and vaults are absolutely soaring right now. One store owner told CNN that she believes that she is selling a lot more safes now because people are scared that civil unrest could be coming....

"Folks are worried about the decreasing value of the dollar, burglaries on the rise in their neighborhoods ... and even the possibility that the unrest we are seeing in other parts of the world slipping over to our country."

#10 Over the past 100 years, the American population has moved steadily into our big cities and the surrounding suburbs. This has created virtual "ghost towns" in our rural areas from coast to coast. Back in 1910, 72 percent of Americans lived in rural areas. Today, only 16 percent of Americans live in rural areas. But when you crowd huge masses of people close together that makes riots and civil unrest much more likely.

Most Americans are already fed up, and the economy is not even that bad yet. One recent survey found that 73 percent of Americans believe that the nation is "on the wrong track". Another recent poll found that only 17 percent of Americans now believe that the U.S. government has the consent of the governed.

Millions of very frustrated young people believe that the economic system has failed them and that the political system no longer holds any answers.

America is rapidly approaching a breaking point. I have written previously about the collapse of society that we are already witnessing all over the United States. When the economy totally breaks down, most Americans are not going to be able to handle it.

Sadly, instead of coming together and trying to do something productive, many Americans will resort to rioting, looting and civil unrest. We have already seen this during local emergencies such as Hurricane Katrina.

But mindless violence accomplishes absolutely nothing positive. It just always makes things worse.

Unfortunately, logic and reason are not going to be enough to stop the gigantic wave of frustration that is coming. For most of the rest of us, it will be hard enough to get out of the way and protect our own families from the economic riots and the civil unrest that are coming.

The thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted is starting to disappear. Hatred and anger are growing by the day. The United States is becoming a very frightening place.

So get ready. Our politicians certainly don't have any answers for us. The debt ceiling deal was a complete and total joke, and corruption is absolutely rampant in Washington right now. Barack Obama is getting ready to leave for yet another vacation, and most of our politicians are only focused on the next election.

So don't expect a "miracle" from those that are supposed to be leading us.

They don't care about you.

You need to take care of yourself and your family and your friends.

A massive economic collapse is coming, and most Americans are going to be totally blindsided by it.

Don't let that happen to you.

Kartographer, here’s one for your list.

As a nation, we are certainly not immune from this kind of thing and, as the article showed, its already beginning. Note, however, that there are precious few if any in areas with shall-issue carry licenses. I’ll bet that you won’t see one at a Texas state fair, for example. Flash mobs may be a bunch of self-centered, amoral thieves, but they’re not completely stupid.

We are already in a civil war. Progressives can’t use the conervative military or national guard to support the ancien regime of welfare statists, so they have to use proxy armies of union thugs, illegal aiens, flash mobs, narchists and petty criminals to intimidate the working class. That is already in motion. Then they steal your money with inflation to prop up the failed bureaucrat structure.

I have written a book on what this modern civil war looks like (Surviving Civil War II), it is nothing like CWI. Disclaimer, I’m not proposing we hit the streets and start a civil war, that is what progressives have long wanted and got. I’m saying Go Galt, step back and watch the system implode from debt and stay legal. No need to go bat crazy, instead just surviving is revolutionary enough.

Since they (the rioters) will only make things worse in their own communities by having rioted. Their next step will probably be out of their communities to riot. Actually this is already being witnessed. I pray not, but have no confidence this will remain inside their own communities. Then the fields open up, and the not in my community comes out. The Military will have to be employed to keep the killing fields from escalating to the point of civil war. It will have to be if the rioters move outside their communities. For with their communities burned to the ground, the mobs of rioters will have to go to the next community to feed their stomachs and their need for taking what is not theirs ... This will be no walk in the park, rather a walk into the unknown ... imho

Civil unrest is what Zero is expecting. His only hope is to impose martial law and suspend the Constitution, and national elections. Watch for the creation of militias and a run on guns.

I don't agree. I have friends running or managing businesses in contracting, electrical, restaurants - these people are ALWAYS looking to hire competent help. Their problem is finding people who are willing to be trained, aren't on drugs, will show up on time, and work hard for what they might consider low pay in the beginning.

Our Progressive society has trained a large segment of society who need to be taken care of by Gov't. These will be our rioters of the future.

The frustration among our young people is palpable. Most of them feel entitled to "the American Dream" and they feel like the system has failed them.

The Brits have figured this one out. The riots had NOTHING what so ever to do with 'jobs' - it was plain and simple criminal rage. The kids were happy sticking to to everyone. There was NO angst. The kids wanted "free stuff". Period.

The sixties are O-VAR...

I see if I can find a link for you Ace - time to move into the 'now'. The Brits have figured it out too - arrest them and cut their free benefits and government checks.

imho ... I have seen those paying for the goodies request spending be cut. Of course, nothing happened. No departments were eliminated, no revision of the tax system took place, no federal employees lost their jobs, everything continued at an unsustainable pace for decades. Maybe is too late to stop the inevitable. I do not know, but I have not been at ease for decades. My belief is ... Time is not something which should have been postponed in our past by doing what was necessary. Is it too late? I pray that it isn’t too late and pray God is there to help us, all of us who have been praying for peace.

Agreed ... my thought has always been pray for peace, prepare for war, while praying for peace. Remember, the world hates America, by and large. Do not fall into the trap of the world. On this continent, only Canada can be depended on, and Canada is as infiltrated as we are here at home.

Poor people may riot and loot, but when the middle class are hurt and they riot—they will change things. All they need is a leader and an Idea. Think France 1789. The old order will die quick, the trumbrils will roll along with heads. There will be some violence due to economic hardships but—I fear the middle class will be the force to fear—be it from the left or the right.

The following is from the above link - showing the Brits ‘get it’ about the riots... the link

...I cannot remember a time when there has been such crushing unanimity on a matter of public importance: the answers to the questions of why this happened, what went wrong when it began to happen and what needs to follow in its aftermath are considered so blindingly self-evident as to be beyond rational disagreement.

At the margins of this consensus, there are some distant noises off. They are the desperate cries of those who fear that they have lost the argument of a lifetime and who want to persuade the great mass of the population that what it saw before its own eyes, hour by hour, night after night on the television news channels was something else altogether.

The Left-liberal camp is in overdrive in its campaign to rewrite history (or, in its own vocabulary, to alter consciousness): you did not see thousands of jubilant thugs rampaging through the streets, destroying livelihoods and property for the sheer exultant joy of it.

Same here. My point, is the fear of unrest from OTHERS who aren't paying for the goodies is increasingly coming from the payers. Doesn't mean they don't want the spending cut, they fear what others might do if they are without those "goodies". It's a legitimate fear.

With about a year before dear leader is sure to be de-imaculated, there is sure to be another orchestrated chrisis. Before the last election Schumer initiated the banking crisis that the left had put in place with the subprime loads they forced on the banks. Van Jones talked about it “bottom up, top down, inside out”. The bottom up is the riots. The top down is the totalitarian state taking over. The inside out is the slaughter of the business owners and property owners with the top and bottom splitting up the look. Just like Mao did. And so many Mao admirers in this regime sort of gves it away.

If Americans have not been lied to again, because there has been and still are those who lead who lie, then the cuts have to be drawn up. If (all) has been a lie to drive the world to the brink of war, then there is another problem which can never be addressed. It is time to address the problems, maybe even find out if the problems are real or a lie. Those who are currently in power and those who have come before today, except for the few who tried have ever took the time to tell Americans the truth. The few tried, the few are still with us, may the few succeed, for the masses will always walk with the enemy. Prayer for success.

The middle class need not to riot--the day one Sarah Palin announces her run for the Presidency her coffers will be filled to total overflowing from the middle class wanting REAL change from the usual in Washington, DC.

In short, it will be the ultimate revolution by the ballot box.

We have raised an entire generation of young people with an "entitlement mentality", but now the economy is producing very few good jobs that will actually enable our young people to work for what they feel they are entitled to...

_________________________________

Nonsense. There are niche sub-cultures with this attitude but they do not represent "an entire generation"...colleges are full of students working to better their chances, our military has no problem at all finding volunteers (and in time of war).

I am sick of these hyperbolic negative assessments of America's young people.

All I can say is pray for the conversion of more Americans to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen. Without Christ, people cannot live in community with each other.

Rifle, ammo and at least a month of food and water.

I will be anchored out with eyes and ears open, watching the election results. It may get a bit messy.

That would be a misnomer, you will find that the “rioters”, etc. will be from all walks of life and their frustrations will be many.
When you have a country where roughly 1 in 4 are on food stamps or some kind of subsistence they all are not bad people or of a entitlement mentality.
People without the prospect of a job or food will do anything to try and provide for their families even that which once was unthinkable.

We have raised an entire generation of young people with an "entitlement mentality"...

The only hyperbole here is the word 'entire'. 'Most' or 'Many' maybe would be more appropriate.

This has been and is being done deliberately. Legions of victims of public education believe the rot about 'economic and social justice' that has been force fed them since early childhood. It is a testament to freedom and the American spirit that in spite of this socialist dogma, so many seek to make their own way.

The problem is that we are at that tipping point (or even past it already), where 50%+1 of voters realize they can vote themselves money from others. We are indeed in for some very harsh times....Reality bites, as they say, but the dependency class can and will bite back.

Foolish are those who don't acknowledge what is on the horizon and prepare for it accordingly.
