Drudge is reporting massive temper tantrums in the U.K., Israel, Spain, Greece, Portugal, the Philippines, China, Syria and Lower Slobbovia.
It seems that Thatcher's theorem about socialism is proved: "Sooner or later you run out of other people's money." Pull a pacifier out of a baby's mouth and he will start to scream. The screaming has begun.
In all of these cases, the disaffected seem to believe that it is the duty of government to give them what they need to live: jobs, housing, food, clothing, etc. Government can't solve the problem because government is the problem. Only the private sector can provide those goodies, and you need a free market in order for that to happen.
Of course there are socialists who have wanted this chaos to happen, like Francis Fox Piven, who advocated making unsustainable demands on government services until government goes broke, and then somehow this will allow socialism to replace capitalism. Brilliant logic: make the patient as sick as possible because only then can he be cured.
I wonder when massive riots will begin breaking out in America? Probably right after Obama is re-elected, perish the thought.
