There is a perfect socio-economic storm coming and part of it is here now. Items 1-8 below are some of its components, which can be described as:
Government-incited unrest, the rush to snatch our protection, government aid to the enemy, encouragement of unlimited illegal immigration (both parties), crime rising and about to spin out of control (thanks to the above and economic factors), and unprecedented fiscal irresponsibility that led to the demise of Detroit and a half-dozen cities in CA, and heading for a potentially cataclysmic downgrade of US debt.
Here is an impartial list of the signs of the perfect storm:
1 Obama shed tears over the death of thug Trayvon Martin, suggesting that whites are mean to blacks. Now blacks are playing knockout games and vandalizing and terrorizing even posh neighborhoods to get revenge against us for this false portrayal of whites as brutal meanies. It is escalating slowly but wait until the food stamps and welfare checks stop...
2 Obama shed a crocodile tear over the dead at Sandy Hook but no tears over his dead ambassador whom he refused to help and no tears over Brian Terry, the border agent killed by a gun 'walked' by government agents to the cartels as part of Fast and Furious. The phony tear was the first sly step in a gun control effort, which will appear harmless at first.

No real news here. The only question is: How much of it is contrived?
I think most people are missing the most important part. In most systemic economic collapses, there were neighboring countries that remained relatively wealthy. This meant that, though crippled, a domestic economy could still exist. In Argentina, for example, there were countries that could afford Argentinian beef, and therefore some wealth still flowed into the country. Similarly, foreign products were still available, and this mitigated the suffering.
If/when the US economy collapses, so too will Europe and most of Asia. We do not have this kind of safety net (neither, really, does Asia and Europe). The resulting collapse in living standards will be not only severe, but without external relief.
I see no way that that this ends without significant violence, both domestic and foreign. As far as anyone "engineering" this crisis -- maybe, but there is no way anyone will be able to control events, so it is somewhat moot.
