government. Any uprising like this would be immediately met with violent police opposition here in "the land of the free".
I disagree. The governments are terrified of the people, because the people are indeed realizing that they have power in numbers.
A million ants can take down an Elephant within minutes if they work collectively and with a plan, that is what your government is more scared of than
anything else, and that is why there is a concerted effort to stop people from communicating freely and planning any real protest.
I would agree that these things are happening elsewhere and not in the US because the people of those nations are more political, more passionate,
more free-thinking and more critical of government. One of the major differences is that most other nations don't think "we the people" means
"government" or "military". In most other countries "we the people" actually means the PEOPLE, collectively, in a spirit of solidarity without
that political points scoring you have in the USA.
There are different types of nationalism. The nationalism if the USA is built on the adoration of a powerful government "team", while meaningless
and petty confrontations consume the right and left. In many other countries nationalism and pride is derived from the community of citizens and not
dictated by government.
Good luck to them. We've seen that countries can do it - Iceland. I hope they succeed.
