Started off with police brutality and lingering racism.

But as usual, humans are extreme minded. So the lemmings take one side and then they take the other.

They are 99.9% anti-American Leftists.
Plus mental illness sometimes causes people to do bad things.

This is all leading up to the GREAT RESET




“The Great Reset” will be the theme of a unique twin summit in January 2021, convened by the World Economic Forum.

“The Great Reset” is a commitment to jointly and urgently build the foundations of our economic and social system for a more fair, sustainable and resilient future.

It requires a new social contract centred on human dignity, social justice and where societal progress does not fall behind economic development.

The global health crisis has laid bare longstanding ruptures in our economies and societies, and created a social crisis that urgently requires decent, meaningful jobs.

The twin summit will be both in-person and virtual, connecting key global governmental and business leaders in Davos with a global multistakeholder network in 400 cities around the world for a forward-oriented dialogue driven by the younger generation.







And these stakeholders will be ushering our New World Order:

UN Secretary-General António Guterres and IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva.


Their statements were supported by voices from all stakeholder groups of global society, including Victoria Alonsoperez, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Chipsafer, Uruguay, and a Young Global Leader; Caroline Anstey, President and Chief Executive Officer, Pact, USA; Ajay S. Banga, Chief Executive Officer, Mastercard, USA; Sharan Burrow, General Secretary, International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), Brussels; Ma Jun, Chairman, Green Finance Committee, China Society for Finance and Banking, and a Member of the Monetary Policy Committee of the People’s Bank of China; Bernard Looney, Chief Executive Officer, bp, United Kingdom; Juliana Rotich, Venture Partner, Atlantica Ventures, Kenya; Bradford L. Smith, President, Microsoft, USA; and Nick Stern, Chair, Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, United Kingdom.

Americans are not.
Marxists are.

Pay little attention to what you see on the Internet or TV. 99.99999 percent of Americans are not rioting. (Add more 9’s if you want.) The ones who are? Misfits having a “fit”. Real Americans who have jobs, family, responsibilities, etc. don’t have time nor the inclination to participate in civil disobedience. They have lives to live.



thank you
you are a good hearted American.

I get the feeling that the people rioting have experienced a very different life in america than most of the members of this board, so there isn't a strong point of reference for either "side" to use in explaining their views to the other. It would take the ability to generate and examine abstractions to bridge this communication barrier, but that seems impossible for the left/right masses of america.

Yep. Coddled, given everything, participation trophies, never ever told no. Likely never had a good spanking. I swear, we will get good communications going between our sides at some point, and eventually find the root of our indifference. Keep taking these baby steps.

They are almost universally upper middle class whites. They have had a pampered and comfortable existence.

Ironically they would be amongst the first to be cleansed following a successful communist rebellion. They are the very definition of Bourgeois.

The demographics of these movements do not lie.

They don't even try to explain their stupid platform. They just scream this week's buzzword in a vitriolic display of hate and anger whenever asked.

At most they want to topple the system but have no proposal of what to replace it with.

They do not however need to explain their "platform" to me, I know exactly what they stand for because I lived it.

As someone who used to be a proud socialist, using the original definition of socialist, I saw the movement not only here in Britain but internationally be taken over by these weirdos.

My group started as a largely working class group. We were opposed to endless wars for profit, the corporate take over of the state and mass migration to weaken the rights of domestic labour. We wanted a more equal (for everyone) society that was not run by sociopathic billionaires and a government that ruled for the benefit of all regardless of race, religion or gender. We wanted labour rights to be respected and to end the exploitation of the poorest in society for the benefit of international oligarchs.

A diverse group of course in ideas, but we all agreed on the central points above.

Over time, rich kids, straight out of university, whose parents were usually hedgefund managers, directors of NGOs or other such privileged elites joined. They wormed their way into positions of power. The conversations were increasingly less about the empowerment of the working class as a whole and the power of wealthy oligarchs and focused more on manufactured issues of race, "gender identity" LGBT rights, the apparent oppression of women and every other leftist talking point people have heard since 2012.

Those of us who attempted to go back to the original meaning of the group were shouted down as "Racist" "Sexist" "Crypto-Fascist" and other terms which were not applicable to the individual in question.

Frankly I consider this a deliberate and orchestrated move to destroy the anti-corporate, anti-war left that was gaining in strength in the west prior to Occupy Wallstreet.

Today I find it not coincidental that the corporate powers that be proudly and openly endorse the new left agenda. The left no longer threatens their power, and can be used as a tool to divide the people on other, often manufactured, issues rather than a focus on working class empowerment and curtailing the power of corporate oligarchs.

It is a sad state of affairs Indeed that I find myself in agreement with the right, but the emergent left I knew is dead.

IMPORTANT: New (old) Standards Are Being Enforced (again) For New Threads


If by some, you mean a tiny percentage of the population, you are right.

The problem here is that America and Americans are nothing like they seem to be, if you base it on what the media chooses to cover. Most of us are just trying to live life and have a little fun in the process. Most of us sit and watch the madness on the news and shake our heads at the nuts and wish they would just go away.

Part of it is that we have entered the me, me, me generation. Most of the people on the streets causing trouble, not only don't give a crap about anyone but themselves, but they take to the streets for any cause, as long as they can get away with horrible behavior.
