Somewhere in the chatter all riots are to do about food, adverse weather food shortages during a Grand Solar minimum will have to be factored in their somewhere. The rich will never quite grasp price rises because it just doesn't touch them.

It's certainly going to get worse, I wonder when the final straw that breaks the camels back gets put on.

*Brexit*

Can hardly be any worse than all this and the immigration going on which

is being thrust onto the indigenous peoples without their consent?


Come to think of it ..... isn't that why we want to leave? TO MAKE OUR

OWN DECISIONS

This may be the beginning of a worldwide awakening.

This massive protest is about the elite strangling the lower classes.

After the US population realizes Trump and Obama were phonies and didn’t really give a dam about them, then FINALLY the American people will hit the streets and follow the Europeans.

The reason is simple. The rich get richer and the lower and middle classes in advanced societies are getting poorer.

In a supposed modern technological civilization where one percent of the population owns more than half the wealth sooner or later, the people will wake up.

After frauds like Trump, Obama, and Clinton are fully exposed MAYBE the Americans will follow suit.

Brexit could go down in history as the tipping point in the break up of the EU for all we know.
Interesting times ahead for sure.

This Macron guy is nothing but an austerity advocate. We forget there was an austerity movement that the press played down and now it’s largely NO LONGER IDENTIFIED yet still politicians are trying to hoist it on Europe and the US.

When people realize it’s not globalism, immigration, or the left/right issue but greed and elitism and the super rich’s stranglehold over the politicians then progress will be made or a true world-wide revolution will happen.

I think this European winter will do the trick, its the third year with snow in the Sahara desert. Where once it was small localised food production, it didn't matter so much if one guys potatoes failed as their was someone else's who didn't. Local markets could cope. But that infra structure is gone in favour of industrialised food crops. Which rely on fuel.

Plan for the worst and hope for the best. If that's doom porn ask the Boy scouts why their motto is "be prepared".

Imagine we just all got really pissed off about the whole affair regarding Brexit.

Seen the culprits responsible for the inept shower of bastards that they are.

Organized some form of Tory/banker/1%er Purge, and just totally and utterly annihilated there kind overnight. Decorate the lampposts with there swinging corpses.

Because that's probably what it would take to institute real change in this nation, thus organize a form of government to the betterment and benefits of the everyday commonplace citizen.

Then again the French and the Russians implemented something similar and they're still pretty much in the same mess that we are now.

Chance would be a fine thing indeed all the same.

Don't think its a bigger problem than Brexit nor Italy yet ……………………………...


What they don't mention is that this fuel tax is sucking 60 billion euros out of the local economies of every region.

I've also looked at what it takes to set up a business in France and I found out the following:

A sole trader is restricted to earning 40K euros max. In the UK, this is around 90K pounds, then you have to become VAT registered.

If you want to set up a company that makes use of computer software in any process, you have to put down a 160,000 euro insurance deposit in case your invention kills or injures someone.

Only 10% of the population can get to university. In Sweden or UK, anyone can go to a university if they can find a place and they can pay the tuition fees and living costs.

So it's pretty hard to dream of being a billionaire if you don't have the resources.

Where Cornish guy comes from, traditionally, piracy and smuggling has always been the growth industry as far as they are concerned they do what they want. But seriously Solar minimums are as sure as night follows day. The only reason the UK got through the last one was because some bright spark realised that coal could be used to heat a place. Now its not only illegal to burn it nobody has a fire place in their homes anymore. Last year it was estimated twelve thousand pensioners froze to death because they couldn't afford the electricity to stay warm. What to do when the power lines go down due to ice buildup?

If the people denied the sub-divisions created by the elite, we'd be more coherent and better able to resist their imposed deprivations and weakenings.

If we have to work to provide and maintain life, we are of the working classes. We should stand tall knowing that by our sweat and skill, the world belongs to us all and not just them.

The power is ours but each time we polarise amongst ourselves, we relinquish a little more of that power to those that are so terrified of it, they must seek to subvert, weaken and control us.

Hunt and cook Tories over an open fire, for food, not to mention sport to alleviate the boredom.
