However they won't be fighting. They will be the generation that gives up. TPTB doesn't need an army with weapons, they just need for the people with
the fight still in them to die off.
EXACTLY! I posted something similar before Here:
Protest used to mean something in this country!
A Curmudgeons Guide to the Revolution
Millennial's can't even muster up a proper protest, let alone rebellion. Also in my opinion officials let Ferguson burn and grow out of control for
political purposes, they could have quelled that spineless crown in less than a couple of hours, if they had really wanted to. This is the "break and
run" generation, they will run at the slightest tumble weed, they have no stomach for confrontation. If LEO's put the hoses or dogs on them like they
did on protestors in the 1960's, I don't doubt many frail "millennial bodies" would have failed under the force, resulting in instant death for some.
Mark my words when these kids reach their late 40's and beyond, deaths by way of falling down stairs at home or slipping on the floor at work will
balloon to unheard of proportions. Millennial's have spent far too little time getting bumps and bruises during their childhoods, meaning the bones
in their bodies are not strong and may as well be chicken bones, due to all the "seat time" they built up, in comparison to previous more active
generations. Here is a study, showing that such is a very possible outcome for Millennial Public Health:
Essex University, studied how strong 315, 10-year-olds were in 2008 and then compared them with 309 children in the same age, using data collected in
1998. They found the following:
-The number of sit-ups a 10-year-olds could do declined by 27.1%, between 1998 and 2008
-Arm strength fell by 26% and grip strength by 7%, between 1998 and 2008
-One in 20 children in 1998 could not hold their own weight, when hanging from wall bars, in 2008 one in 10 could not do so and another 10% of that
2008 cohort refused to even try the activity
Now add in neck and back problems from texting and you have huge public health disaster on the horizon. So, as I said above, basically a fall down a
flight of stairs or a heavy box falling on them, when they get older, is far more likely to kill INSTANTLY them than in previous generation. Their
bones have sustained far less impact over the same amount of time, versus people born just 2 decades earlier. Their bones will be as fragile as
porcelain when at 40 years old and what REALLY funny is that insurance companies currently raise rates for people currently over 40, when these kids
hit 40, based on the current polices, they should be uninsurable.
In addition to the above think surveillance tech, tightly controlled media and perfected subterfuge techniques are keeping ALL of us from knowing if
new activist groups are springing up. I'd argue the government today, nips such movements in the bud, sending participants to jail will-nilly,
affording no due process like they got in the 1960's and in turn giving them horrible plea bargains. I think people ARE indeed trying to take action,
but are quickly stomped out, rounded up by LEO's and NONE of it gets to the media, including blogger and Instagram journalists.
I'll give a simple example of something I thought for sure I would see in the streets during riots, but have yet to see it happen. During Occupy,
protesters from EVERY city were easily dispersed by tear gas and flash bangs. Why? Didn't Occupy participants have knowledge that such tactics would
be used against them? Did they not prepare to neutralize the effects, especially with some ex-military people participating and have experience
dealing with such? The rioters is Greece and Spain were not as easy to disperse, in fact they were not dispersed at all by LEO's.
So, I'm supposed to believe that most protesters in the USA, NEVER, thought to prepare and have Goggles/eye-protection, shields, or safety/chemical
respirators with them at all times? ALL OF THIS STUFF IS OVER THE COUNTER, but NONE of the protesters I have seen, not since the 1990',s prepare with
Another example, imagine if the UC Davis cop that started pepper spraying the student protesters, found out that they ALL had respirators and goggles.
Would he have started beating them with his night stick out of frustration because he wouldn't be able to effectively use the pepper spray? I would
say, most likely, yes.
If you know you're going to get shot with rubber bullets and bean bag shotguns, a defensive formation like the Ancient Roman/Greek Phalanx should be
Standard Operating Procedure, but nope, they just stand around until the SHTF and then start running in every direction, as if being shot at by LEO's
was an impossibility.
So whats different about Millenial protesters versus Europeans? My guess is anyone that could teach them proper tactics to counter LEO's are quickly
arrested on trumped up charges and threatened to never return to help the activists again "or else". American protesters are so poorly organized that
I can't imagine them EVER having an ounce of success, but at the same time I think surveillance tech, tightly controlled media and perfected
subterfuge techniques are ENTIRELY responsible for said poor organization and preparation.
The FBI said Friday it has
deployed about 100 agents to the St. Louis area ahead of the decision, in case demonstrators take to the streets
As noted in the above link, surveillance tech, tightly controlled media and perfected subterfuge techniques are keeping ALL of us from knowing if new
activist groups are springing up across America.
