Roumors are that Berlusconi bribed some parlamentarians to prevail confidence voting in Parlament

Slowly but surely Europe is descending into ever more chaos.. Riots have broken out in Greece, Ireland, UK, France and Italy this year.. Each clash seems to be larger and more chaotic than the last. I don't think the act of rioting it's self is something to worry about if it's an isolated issue.. but the ever increasing frequency, the wide spread area and the fact that it's not an isolated issue but often associated with a Class Warfare mindset that is concerning.

Concerning of course because through the violence it would only take, imo, a powerful speaker and mover of the people to alter society in a way that can be good or very bad.. most often from chaos though the worst of humanity is brought out..

At the same time it's interesting to watch the ever increasing resort to taking to the streets, especially by disenfranchised youth.. we are the ones who are getting screwed the most out of all proceedings. The Governments make no concessions.. we are the easiest to bully because we have the least amount of wealth .. And how frightening to see government reactions, how they hold us in contempt.. the British reply to violent opposition to a 200% tuition increase.. that they will use forensics and video to hunt down protesters to lock them up.

Clearly the missed the point.

Governments and the wealthy continue to alienate themselves to the population as a whole.. when austerity kicks in, when real effects are felt.. violence will be larger, more violent, and more widespread.

Saddly these riots have one thing in common. People destroying innocent peoples property and hurting innocent people doing their jobs to get even with the government somehow. Not many brain cells engaged among rioters are there.

I can hear it now; "lets all burn peoples cars who have nothing to do with what we are mad at, that will show Berlusconi!"

It's also interesting that it's always the worst in the countries with the most Socialist attitudes and who give the most entitlements. The more they get for nothing, the more violent they are. Seems to be message buried in this.

They are also rioting in Russia over a Football Fan being killed and those that are rioting are Neo-Nazi's.

Crazy times right now, Italy, Greece, Spain, Ireland, France, UK, Portugal, Germany, Serbia, Lithuania, Czech, Mexico,Haiti, USA, Etc.................You can easily name the countries on one hand (if that) that are not having protest and major problems. The globe's a pressure cooker waiting to blow. I don't give the US much longer before it implodes, wouldn't suprise me if they already have Vegas odds on the US. Antartica is sounding better every day and I'm sick of living in the snow.
