This is really well said, and it appears there’s no stopping it. On party is just barely trying to address the problem and the other party is rapidly exacerbating the problem.

There's no stopping it because everything is controlled by foreign influence.

Trump was stopping it. The average wage of the blue collar worker went up. The job prospects for young men and women were looking good. There were more small businesses and a lot more opportunities. Reliance on government hand outs shrunk. People were getting married and were buying houses while Trump was in office.

And how many in his party tried to help him? How many actively sabotaged him? How many helped but were extremely tepid in their support? There's very few Republicans that will actually move us in the right direction.

Obviously stolen elections causing young men to believe that they have no chance to peacefully effect change is just more gasoline on the fire.

Exit 1 is wrong, Occupy Wallstreet was almost completely full of gibsmedat handout socialists.

Sorry but a lot of points are just wrong or missing the mark. For the most part it's well researched and makes sense, but they are clearly looking at things from a bluepilled neolib/lefty point of view. (just not Marxist or idpol)

This anon is not going to be on our side when the conflict starts. At best they'll be perched up on their fence post going "see I told you this would happen" and blaming the government for not fixing the economy or keeping us pacified.

OWS wasn't the first manifestation of the discontent. The Ron Paul movement and the Tea Party were the first manifestations of it. OWS wasn't even political to begin with. It was a few lefty activist that put out tweets and e-bulletins that a free impromptu music festival was going to happen. The first OWS "protestors" thought they were going to a concert.

I have to disagree.

I lived in Portland during the whole thing (not downtown, but in a close-in neighborhood. I could, and out of curiosity have, taken a mere 20-minute walk to the encampments before, during, and towards the end.)

While yes, a lot of them were shiftless gutter-punks looking for gibs, a large number were not.

  • Many who marched had lost their homes due to predatory mortgage practices (which, Nota Bene, BoA for instance was actually found guilty of. The payout of the class-action was a pitiful $2-3k on average, but they did end up paying out billions overall if memory serves). Should they have read the fine-print? Yes - but remember, nobody teaches anyone in high school how contracts or loans work, and haven't for decades. Hell, I doubt that they even teach kids how to balance a checking account or how credit cards truly work these days.

  • Many who marched were old people who got good and properly fucked out of pensions promised long ago, but the company offering it went shaky due to overpromising and shit practices, and the pensions faltered when the stock market took a shit at that time. (IIRC, one of the few pensions in Oregon that survived was PERS, but that's state government backed, and all OR taxpayers are still getting fucked from it.)

  • Still others who marched got laid off due to the 2008 shitfest - and not because the companies were in trouble. The companies were desperate to meet earnings projections and/or make their balances look good. Why? So the BoD and majority shareholders could quickly sell off in leveraged buyouts to megacorps looking for bargains. That in turn made them rather filthy rich.

So no, it wasn't just about gibs.

I agree. Lots of the people protesting were evicted from their homes due to predatory bankers.

"Oh, you can cash out of your home equity. 30 year interest only loan, same monthly payment, but you can take that vacation that you are owed. Don't worry, home prices are always going up."

Then 2008 hit, most people's home value was underwater, and people were getting evicted left and right.

And because of pensions buying into the "Triple A, very safe mortgage backed securities", so went a lot of pensions and savings for old folks.

I agree, but... it did cause corporate media to change their tune on social justice. Immediately. Had to get the class division changed to anything else. The dumb fucks doing the protests might have just wanted money, but they struck a nerve.

Lol houses are still cheap. Idiots just want to live near shitholes.

LordScatmanJohn 8 points ago +8 / -0

There's truth to this. Most people don't even consider living out in the sticks where housing and property are a lot cheaper.

Not as convenient, but you're a little further out of the govts grasp. Even during the height of wuflu panic country people and towns barely did mask shit.

I moved out of the city into the middle of nowhere. Kept my home there and rent it.

Life good not being around libtards and crime.

I'm jealous. Circumstances of life has me nailed down too near a liberal shithole for my liking. I'm bailing on city living at my soonest convenience.

Libertas_Vel_Mors 3 points ago +3 / -0

It's not cheaper anymore - at least West Coast. Portland's descent into shitholery has made my rural property double in market value in less than five years, and is set to hit the 300% mark by this time next year.

Depends where you're at and how much of a shithole the city is. Its medium bad by me, nowhere near as retarded as portland.

This is spot on but only in the sense of describing what is being purposely done. The conclusion and recommendations fall on deaf ears as the ones pushing all this have no stake in the actual success of a nation. They are nationless uber wealthy that have zero concern for the well-being of a nation and whether a revolution occurs or not is immaterial. Hell, they probably want a revolution because that would mean the world would be too busy destroying everything else but them. They can just hide in their compounds or sovereign enclaves until it all blows over.

Asian countries (with Japan leading the way) seem to be taking the Brave New World approach with placating the young males. By all accounts it seems to be working. Combined with Latin American style socialized welfare this seems to be their approach to overtaking nations and lands without violent revolution. It appears they'll continue to use immigrants to keep wages low and keep business functioning, hence why they don't mandate vaccination on immigrants.

I can't wait til the civil war starts. I'm gonna go blue check mark/journalist hunting in minecraft.

There are much bigger targets. The bosses at the end of the game are the goal, the minions are just the early levels.

Archdukeofevil 3 points ago +3 / -0

agreed but I am just a minion too. I'd be hunting my own level in minecraft. Maybe after I level up on knocking off a bunch of minions I can go for some bigger fish?

The other off-ramp at the same time as Occupy Wall Street was the Tea Party. It started as a protest against "Billions of taxpayer dollars for billionaire bankers". Instead, Fox News decided to take control and set up their own organizers for the Tea Party, and it basically turned it into pro-2nd amendment + pro-life.

Now, these stances are pretty popular with most of the audience here. But, popular or not, it's best to understand that you got manipulated by the billionaires and their compliant media. Foxes stance is that it's okay to want to outlaw abortion, after all, the billionaires can fly their mistresses out to California for a day, but, we gotta stay silent as the government transfers more money to the owners of media and the financial community.

Everyone should check out Libido Dominandi by E. Michael Jones.

Lots of good points in this image, but most important to note is that the pacification of young men through vice (especially free-to-access pornography) is tried and true.

It also creates an inverted demographic pyramid. Sure, it will push off the problem for ~40 years. Now we are going to get fucked, along with most of the world.

Society missed several opportunities for true change politically

People have no reason to participate, and the pacification methods are becoming less effective

Big change and likely violence incoming

BlackRock buying up all the houses to rent them rather than have people own is going to exacerbate this big time in the next 5-10 years. The rate at which they’re buying homes is alarming.

To all those people who think this lefty has a good point of view

Exactly how to you think the Federal Bureaucracy and a few more rent codes on landlords or a subsidy to first time homebuyers is going to solve anything?

This is the same dumb thinking that was behind project house, then section 8, then the subprime mortgage crisis. Giving people property doesn't mean they can take care of it, hang on to it or that they'll take more responsibility.

This is exactly the disastrous thinking that led to Freddie Mac proclaiming "we make housing your home".

It ain't an affordable housing crisis.

So basically, the solution was Trump.

Anyway, this whole thing reads like a way too educated leftist that can't see the forest through the trees. The lefty basically wants a new populist movement to galvanize young men to fight for affordable property. Affordable property to the lefty is gateway to familial and societal stability.

That's not going to happen until men desire to marry women and have families. Legally and financially, that's too much of a risk for most young men.

The financial liability of owning property though, isn't due to government policies and landlords, but due to how easy it is for a woman to divorce a man and throw him out of his own house and take over the raising of the kids.

Why buy the cow if you can get the milk for free.... with the new twist on the adage being, the cow is free to supply the whole town with milk while charging you for the calfs that think you're the stranger.

Also, does anyone really believe marriage contracts mean anything today? For religious people it does but the average young man and young woman have no religion to speak of and haven't grown up in a culture that promotes the indissolubility of marriage.

I think the author is right that young unmarried men with little hope for the future are the source of crime, violent crime and civil unrest, but not really Revolution.

All Revolutions are about culture. It boils down to what people expect of their leaders/rulers and what they will accept. We all accepted the corruption of our leaders when they weren't attacking us as the enemy. Now, they see us as the enemy.

They're both trying to protect themselves from us and creating a domestic enemy. Political rule is only as legitimate as most the people will tolerate it. D.C. is fast becoming intolerable.

I do believe the lefty is absolutely right about OWS, BLM and #metoo, but the lefty ignored the Tea Party. If anything, that sort of bias, where everything the left does is somehow legitimate, but everything the right does is meaningless, is the cultural struggle that will throw us into Civil War, if indeed, we ever get there.

I will tell you this though, if there is a Revolution in America and I make no predictions on if it will happen, but if it does, it's not going to be reform the government but to abolish and replace it. There won't be a U.S. Constitution and it probably won't be a democratic Republic either. It'll be rooted in culture and religion and it will irreparably and permanently divide the U.S. into regions/states.

If the lefty were serious about wanting to prevent, the lefty wouldn't be looking to empower D.C. with more control, but more concerned with putting D.C. back in the box. D.C. has too much money and too much power. What the revolutionaries are going to want, is to live their lives within the bounds of their own culture(s) without government mandating and legalizing and politicizing everything we do.

We have a chance right now to do that, by loosening up the cultural constraints and not pushing the one size fits all ideology, "secular" religious leftism and allowing everyone to have a place at the table. That ain't going to happen though...at least not soon. We are hopelessly divided and being driven to hate each other.
