Signs Of Collapse: The Obvious And The Hidden
December 14, 2012 by Bob Livingston
Societal collapse manifests itself in many ways. The clues are there for the discerning to see.
In America, societal collapse is evident through continued and escalating currency devaluation (quantitative easing to infinity), the collapse and non-recovery of the housing market, the growing number of individual bankruptcies, high unemployment and business failures. These things are at least making news headlines, though in a way that plays down their significance. Other signs — particularly the loss of civility; the glorification beyond all reason of athletic events, athletes and celebrities; and the increase in the â€śme-firstâ€ť and entitlement mindset — arenâ€™t discussed in the media.
One clue being missed by the masses is the growing lawlessness of the Nationâ€™s youth — particularly black youth. That is by design. The whore media is intentionally overlooking, if not suppressing, the growing incidences of youth mob violence, particularly in cases of black-on-white crime.
But mobs, like the 44th Street Crew in Southeast Washington, D.C., are becoming more prevalent and more dangerous. They and others are terrorizing riders of the Metro, and posting it to social media for all to see.
Just another isolated incident? Hardly. According to the Website UnsuckDCMetro (a blog dedicated to covering Metro events), reports of violence rarely make it to The Washington Post, even though they are occurring and have been for some time. One anonymous reader posted his experience in witnessing a group of six to eight teenagers assaulting a lone teenage girl. He said he called 911; less than a minute later, another girl was being assaulted.Â Other reports are here, here and here.
When these websites post details of the incidents, commenters follow up with their own experiences. Sometimes these are as bad as or worse than the original incident.
Thomas Sowell writes that there is an uncensored race war in America and that incidents that are occurring across the country are being ignored or suppressed.
â€śWhat the authorities and the media seem determined to suppress is that the hoodlum elements in many ghettoes launch coordinated attacks on whites in public places. If there is anything worse than a one-sided race war, it is a two-sided race war, especially when one of the races outnumbers the other several times over,â€ť he wrote last summer.
Black mobs are taking over stores, overwhelming them with sheer numbers and walking out with all the merchandise they can carry. They are engaging in uprovoked violence called â€śknockout gamesâ€ť where they calmly approach an unwary victim and cold cock him or her in an effort to render the victim unconscious.
Walter E. Williams writes that in addition to a growing number of black-on-white incidents, there are also an increasing number of black-on-Asian attacks. But also being ignored by the media is black-on-black crime.
This shouldnâ€™t be surprising. Blacks are suffering disproportionally in the President Barack Obama economy. According to official (and doctored) unemployment numbers put out by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, unemployment in the black community is above 13 percent, almost twice the rate of all unemployment. For blacks under the age of 20, the official rate is 39.4 percent. Since real unemployment is above 22 percent (when all unemployed workers are counted), black unemployment may be near 40 percent and black under 20 unemployment is, no doubt, much worse.
As the collapse continues and escalates, look for violence to also escalate. People get more desperate as they get hungrier. Desperate people do desperate things. Arab spring was just a picnic.
