That apathy will only last so long. We've seen the youth out for Occupy, but that was only driven by principle and ethics. Just wait until it's
driven by desperation and the majority are able to combine over a single issue.
I don't think "the movement" is necessarily going to start with organized protest though, I think in the US it could be triggered by several things
from a radical movement and the backlash on all citizens from the state, to a riot that spreads out of control like we had in the UK. If that had
happened in America, with thousands of armed people looting and rioting, things would have deteriorated very quickly.
There are a lot of divides in America, on race, class, economic standing and political ideology. The success of divide and conquer has never been more
evident than in America where the public are distracted and divided on party lines while their complaints are seemingly so similar.
If Americans ever realize that both left and right are very similar in their distrust of government and their disgust of inequality, if they can put
aside all the BS petty arguments just long enough to protest for that one basic thing, then your government will be sh*tting their pants.
