When the people no longer have any TRUST in Government. And the Government looks upon the people as if the people work for them. And the people have nowhere to turn for JUSTICE & REDRESS . . . THE PEOPLE TURN TO THE STREETS.
When the People took to the Streets in France during the Revolution (1789 – 1799), and the Cobblestones RAN RED with the BLOOD of the Aristocracy and Bureaucracy, IT WAS NOT A ONE-OF, nor was it an event restricted to the History of that time.
I TRULY BELIEVE . . . that today’s Modern Aristocracy, who amongst them are Corporate, Entertainment, Intellectual, Bureaucratic and Government Insiders – would do themselves an INCREDIBLE FAVOR, if they were to shut-up and learn some HISTORY.
Before the Storming of the Bastille . . . Before the Barricades went up in Paris. And before the French Elitists were Dragged to the Dungeons, or Beaten and Murdered on the Streets, or met with the Guillotine – THEY WERE WARNED.
THAT SAID . . . I think it’s already too late, since the rot has become so deep, and has become so embedded within the Privileged Class . . . and so much a part of Our Society, that nothing short of a REVOLUTION CAN BRING REDEMPTION.
FRANCE FOUGHT THEIR REVOLUTION . . . in the LATE 1700’s – to win what America had already won and established in the somewhat earlier 1700’s, through the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights.
1 – Throughout Europe . . . People were adopting beliefs, which extolled the Freedoms of The Individual.
2 – People throughout Europe, were reaching out for New Ideas and Friendships to other Countries and Cultures, leading to the exchange of knowledge, commerce and the concentration of wealth.
3 – There was a new way of thinking about the Control of the Church, Unfair Education, and the Servitude of the people to Government.
4 – People were Hungry for New Philosophies and Philosophers, waiting for nothing else but someone to lead.
IN ESSENCE . . . It was a time when the people had had enough . . . and needed nothing more than a Leader to RALLY the Masses and effect REAL & PAINFUL CHANGE. Eventually, that Leader was Napoleon, but before him, various Leaders inflicted the People’s Revenge.
1 – France was BROKE in the mid to late 1700’s from fighting wars, and financing the wars of others.
2 – There was little to no money in the Treasury. And the only International Wealth that changed hands were Debts owed by Paris.
3 – The people didn’t have jobs, they couldn’t put food on the table, and the cities and infrastructure were in decay.
4 – The people were already TAXED to the limit, with the only Monetary Resource left for the Government to latch onto, were the Wealthier Working Class, you know, just like Obama, Clinton and the LEFTIST Elitists who repeatedly CRY-OUT TO TAX THE 1-PERCENTERS.
5 – Where was the Justice . . . since the Insiders had various sets of Rules and Regulations . . . one for themselves – with the other for everyone else.
6 – The People were wholly divided between the ELITE & THE WORKING CLASS.
The Situation in France had become so Volatile . . . that even though the King and His Council, and the Estates-General, all of whom were in the mood to negotiate a New Form of Government with newly Proposed Freedoms, and a New Method of Taxation . . . THEY WERE A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT, since the people had simply had enough, and wanted more than JUST JUSTICE . . . THEY WANTED REVENGE.
FROM THE TOP DOWN . . . From the President’s Office to the Justice Department. From the President to the IRS. From the President to the FBI. From the President to Homeland Security and Border Patrol. From the President to the CIA. From the President to the NSA. From the President to America’s Military Leaders to Iran, ISIS, Syria, Iraq and Libya . . . IT’S ALL A MESS. And those are just some of the American Miseries through Government.
Think about all the people who have been taxed so much, that raising a family of FOUR with a family income of $100,000 before taxes, places that family into the Poverty Class, with virtually no means of saving for retirement.
Think about the Young People who finish University with a USELESS Degree, who in many, if not in most cases finish with a $100,000 Debt, and very few prospects for finding a job.
Think about North America’s NEW ROYALTY & BOURGEOISIE, who are by Government Standards . . . TOO BIG TO FAIL, and then at those who serve at the Pleasure of the Politicians, who serve in Government Capacities, whether they Provide Good Services or Not, whether they actually do a job or do not do the job they’re paid to do, and even when what they do, as in Veterans’ Affairs . . . they far too often cause great PAIN, ANXIETY and even DEATH through incompetence and uncaring, they will all live a better working life and RETIREMENT than the vast majority of people who pay for their way through Our Taxes.
BECAUSE . . . when we read and hear how James Comey, the Director of the FBI, allowed Hillary Clinton to simply WALK AWAY from her HIGH CRIMES & MISDEMEANORS, as if nothing happened, and then PARDONED 5-People who could have led the FBI to INDICTING Clinton and her CO-CONSPIRATORS for crimes ranging from abuse of power, theft, conspiracy, lying to Congress – all the way up to TREASON . . . there is nothing left with which to wonder how corrupt, and to which depths the Judicial System has FALLEN.
And when people understand that there really is NO JUSTICE . . . or that Justice is not served on the High and Mighty as it is served on the rest of us, People will inevitably take Justice unto Themselves in ways we Dread to Imagine.
BEFORE I CONCLUDE . . . In a forthcoming Editorial, I intend to write why Black Lives Matter could very well contribute to the LAST STRAW ON THE CAMEL’S BACK, and how this IDIOCY will probably come back and Bite the Black Community in the Ass.
And how it could be the Final Spark to Light the Fuse.
