Unfortunately the rich don't really need most of us anymore, like the did before automation etc. More over they could probably wipe most of out before breakfast if they really wanted to. Not that it will likely come to that anytime soon. No, the usual rabble rousers will do their thing, and probably a fair number of well-meaning and nice people will end up being assulted by the cops, who'll get overtime, a fun day out to London and in due course even nastier weapons to use against us all. I'd say the British are too respectful and the Americans just too stupid to ever pull off a revolution. (I say this with great regret). But can you imagine a British bobby refusing to 'police' a demo. Remember the miners' strike? What fun they had riding down and clubbing women and kids. Plus any other more recent 'action' you care to remember, up to and including that violent eviction the other week? Resistance is always crushed. Roads, runways, nuclear power-stations or whatever it is, are always built. Squatters are always removed. The rich always get their way. Still you never know ...

A good, rather long, and actually quite scary film about the US today here (but then they rule the world now) ...

But if you're in a hurry just watch 37m-47s to 40m-11s, which explains the financial situation simply but clearly :-)

I take back what I said about Americans. Firstly, they're in deeper shit than I realised, and secondly they're responding very creatively. Indeed watching some of the live feeds coming in, takes me right back to '68. Maybe this time around with the internet providing instant sharing of news, tactics and enthusiasm almost worldwide, and dozens of digital cameras recording every foul blow, well I won't hold my breath, but who knows? Take a look at the independent coverage that's out there, I'd like to know what other people here make of it all.

Good background film (funny too where it can be) :

This might be worth watching over the next few hours Live coverage from Portland where the shit is about to hit the fan :

If I pointed out that a certain individual famous for his overlarge ears and extensive 'private' estate is most definitely part of the 1%, would that perhaps spark a little more interest here?
