Partisan news missing the point: Youth, poor have greater reason for dissatisfaction than tea parties

Predictions of a youth uprising sweeping the United States in 2011 appear to be turning increasingly true, according to a recent poll.

Figures supporting that hypothesis, produced by the left-leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP) for a liberal blog, were cited by partisan news figures as proof of a growing violent radical element in the tea parties.

But that's missing the larger statistic.

Across Europe in the last year, youth have led sweeping civil unrest in protest of corrupt governance, harsh austerity measures and what they see as a guided collapse of their economies.

In Greece, riots became a daily reality in 2010 as Athens has been repeatedly crippled by black-clad youth openly fighting police in the streets.

In France, hundreds of thousands shut down the economy in response to a proposal to raise the retirement age.

In Italy, cars burned and shops were smashed over the barely-there coalition government of Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

In London, a massive hike to college tuition fees led throngs of angry students to smash up the Supreme Court, Treasury and conservative party buildings. Protesters even got within grabbing range of Prince Charles and the Dutchess of Cornwall, attacking their car with blunt objects and paint as it passed.

In Tunisia, acting on disclosures by WikiLeaks about the economic dominance of the former dictator's family, a 26-year-old street vendor set himself ablaze in protest of high unemployment, sparking the unrest that quickly toppled their government. Thanks to his success -- even in death -- more self-immolations have been reported in Algeria, Egypt and Mauritania as authoritarian Muslim regimes looked on in fear of their populace.

And that could just be the beginning, if the predictions prove accurate.

while liberals scratch their heads over the anger raging against the new world order, one government has fallen (so far) due to riots caused by greed and corruption in their government, which has done nothing to protect its people from starvation - caused by capitalist financiers speculating in food commodities...

TUNISIA'S TIDE OF DEFIANCE, from al-jazeera...

As revolutionary zeal engulfs the region, the people must be on their guard against the forces seeking to smother it.

Eastern European nations, for decades shackled under the weight of Communism, were the last geographical bloc to break the chains of oppression en masse, and in the process shed a history of subservience to a far off and, to many, an alien political culture. How that landscape has now changed.

While Eastern Europe is now free, the plight of the majority of the Arab world is reminiscent of the worst excesses of Soviet rule: Political repression is the norm, civil society is suffocated while a political elite operates in a parallel existence intoxicated by the stench of absolute power.

Lest anyone think oppression breeds indifference, however, the people of Tunisia have just turned history on its head and unleashed a defiance that is bound to resonate with the people of neighbouring nations and to shake the thrones of Arab despots.

Do not underestimate the psychological impact of what Tunisians have just achieved. Arab regimes have had a free hand at imposing their will on reluctant populations through the use of a single instrument: Fear. In the space of just a few weeks, masses of Tunisians have demonstrated to the Arab region the limits of dictatorial rule.

calling eastern europe "free" is kinda like describing prisons as "freedom centers." while on the topic...if someone you admire or care about is doing prison time for opposing corporate greed and violence, you must read this...i remember when the U.S. once inspired people around the world as a beacon of freedom and hope for the future...

Why Is the Counter-Terrorism Unit Briefing Police About My Lectures and Website?

The Counter-Terrorism Unit briefs prison officials and law enforcement about the communications of "terrorist" prisoners. It's an important function, since prisoners have actually communicated with terrorist cells from within U.S. prisons; in 2005, it was revealed that three men convicted of bombing the World Trade Center in 1993 wrote 90 letters to extremists abroad. And they did it from within the Supermax.

This unit was created to prevent such potentially fatal errors from happening again. However, new documents raise some troubling questions about the Counter-Terrorism Unit's priorities:

The unit is monitoring the PR campaigns of environmental activists, and its briefings have included my lectures and this website.

and check out this pdf, from the federal bureau of prisons, where environmental activists are being held in the same facilities as muslim terrorists...if you are not in revolt right now, or preparing for open rebellion, you are either a coward or a tool...this is a matter of self-defense against EVERY INSTITUTION OF POWER IN EXISTENCE!
