I personally feel that Western Governments are preparing for civil disturbances, and would indeed be putting plans in to effect to deal with the
At the begining of last year, a senior UK police officer spun the "Summer of Rage" (trademark UK government)
But I felt then as I do now that the process of getting people to the point of creating civil disturbances was a year away unless Western Governments
take active steps to ensure the effects of unemployment, under employment and over burdened employment were negated.
Alas, none have gone as far as protecting their populations, unemployment, under employment and over burdened employment is rife, and unless we have a
spectacular spending spree this Christmas that trend is set to continue with more and more being made redundant, having their hours or pay cut, within
this job-less recovery.
My Gov, the UK gov is now talking of radical cuts, and the cost of the bail out will soon flow through to the general public, hitting each of us with
service cuts, increased living costs and taxes.. How is that a bearable for those already struggling. The snapping point is just around the corner.
I'll make the assumption that the same can be said will happen at some point in the US..
How do those who are unemployed, under employed and over burdened cope! how do we survive! what is left for people to do bar follow history and go on
to the streets to protest... and this government (UK) will get their trademarked "summer of rage"
The only choices I feel that are left to Western Governments is to either create a world war scenario, turn this recovery into a job based recovery or
face civil disturbances.
