What is going on that they don't want us to see?
Oh the typical when things like this happen. The ruler(s) of the regime, those gainfully employed by it, and the international and national
corporations whose contracts and investments (and those gainfully employed by them) are secured by the regime, all have vested interests in seeing the
regime and its institutions perpetuated.
Those not gainfully employed or contractually co-dependent would like to get rid of the regime.
This is always a tense time in the Boardrooms and Halls of Power, since it’s very much like the Three Musketeers when it comes to protecting and
projecting Statist and Corporate Contractual Systems of “One for all and all for one”.
The State is obviously in a better position to hold out in most cases in the long run, since it has the resources, control of the flow of the
resources (in most significant cases) the money to pay it’s henchmen, the resources to fuel it’s henchmen, and the corporations that control the
resources and the flow to the general public on their side.
The people are always though in a better position to overwhelm through sheer numbers if they can not be divided and a leader, replete with an ability
to communicate (logistical) can unite the people and keep them from being divided.
The State of course will keep working on dividing the people and sewing an element of confusion so the people can not effectively use their superior
numbers to attain critical mass.
Meanwhile as always people on both sides are going to get hurt, just typically not those in the Halls of Power or the Corporate Board Rooms.
As things like this linger on, eventually it does reach a crisis point where neither the State can function, and the chaos of the conflict imperils
more and more people from eating or finding any safe haven.
So each day, each side will get a little more desperate and a little more pro-active in trying to end the stand off in a victorious way.
