An American trends analyst told a Russian news service recently that in 2011, young people from industrial societies around the world will
unite on the Internet to overthrow increasingly ineffective elements of globalism that have driven their economies into depression.
In a wide-ranging interview with Russia Today (RT) on Monday, Gerald Celente made the bold prediction along with a raft of other prognostications on
humanity's growing trends.
This was an interesting read, even if it's obvious to most that we're heading in that direction. What I find a bit alarming is the terminology...more
of the potentially violence-encouraging rhetoric that we've been discussing so often as of late. Cyber wars. Revolution.
While it can and should be interpreted by most sane and thinking minds as innocuous language, it still does have the potential to inflame and incite,
particularly the younger and arguably more impressionable minds. No offense meant here...just a stereotypical observation maybe.
On another note, I think the study author makes a very large assumption that the slacktivists on FaceBook and other social networking sites will
actually take action. I remain unconvinced that the majority needed ever will. Maybe as long as it's "easy" for them to...revolution at the push of a
button, so to speak, they will. But I highly doubt the PTB will ever allow it to get to that level of accessibility.
In addition, I find his mention of Ron Paul rather interesting. Dr. Paul himself says the way out of the painful mess we're in with our global economy
is going to be a long and very painful process. I'm not sure many people (as a whole) in the instant-gratification models of industrialized nations
have the patience for this or realize just how long this is going to take...a lifetime. Will our youth? Will they have the fortitude and stamina to do
what the older generations couldn't and can't seem to?
And again, my own opinion on "revolution?" Yes there is a worldwide problem...but the only revolution that's going to work is a monetary/economic one
where we unshackle ourselves from our dependency on large banks and other corporations and their grace (our salaries) and their credit (our bane) and
their controlling tools like the credit score system, which is beginning to control EVERY segment of our lives.
Anyway...interesting reading, and interesting food for thought.
And here's a related YouTube video from the article...
