Now the snapshot is fading and they ware watching cars and buildings burn while realizing they are pandas, to lazy to even screw and assure a future. The mishmash of those on the lower tier of society, native folks who have only ever lived life on the dole and the massive waves of immigrants, would rather watch Geordie Shore than ask god to save their queen.
No one is missing it. Don't be an ass. They are pointing right at it and noting the flaw. Look at Hands quote right below you. These folks while not living the high life are supposed to be free from basic wants and they are torching place because the premise that you can purchase the peace hasn't proven to be true. The youth and the immigrants are seeing that same photograph you are staring at and noting above. That is not their lives. They are burning cars and shops because the socialist model that purchased the peace is broken and has run out of other people's money to take.
If they are so free from want, they why are they murdering, looting and burning in the first place?
People are aware of it. They just ignore it because the party that helps the crony-capitalist purchases racial indulgences from the race hustlers and then points the finger at those who would stop it and screams that they are racists.
Nice platitude but last I looked, he was the one living in the former colony that fled due to not wanting to keep a fucking king. Sure it is a bit different now that in the past but the point is that America was founded because the tax policy in the past consisted of a king declaring gimme. Our nation was founded on avoiding tax coercion and that wasn't in our heads.
I obviously hit a nerve. Let me deal with your weird EU rant first and then the central point.
Look, there is nothing the US can tell Europe about violence, racial tension, sickness of people, proportional and absolute levels of poverty, quality of life, happiness of population or (my absolute favourite, thanks for bringing it up) debt.
Because the US scores worse. Worse than Europe. On every one.
We even get twice as many days holidays.
So stick your superiour model, because it isn't working for you.
I'll focus again on the debt issue because if we "bought" our peace then we should be more in debt than the US, shouldn't we? But, uh, we're not.
Anyway, they're not rioting because of that craziness you wrote, but because the neo-liberal model has obviously become something that will never work for them, ever, they will never advance, they have nothing to aspire to, so, fuck it, fuck you, let's get some shoes.
