In 2010 A paper was published which predicted widespread unrest in western Europe and the USA, 10 years later it was vindicated. So what exactly were they doing? and why am I telling you this? Let's find out.

First Let's have a look at the graph's of Temporal trends in anti-government protests and then that of riots respectively. One will notice that what the report predicted was correct mass unrest and societal instability has risen dramatically in the western world.

So what are they doing?
The report is based on a field called Clio dynamics which examines societal instability using four factors.
>Mass mobilization potential:When the supply of labour exceeds its demand, the price of labour decreases,
depressing the living standards for the majority of population, thus leading to popular immiseration and growing mass-mobilization potential, but creating
favourable economic conditions for the elites.
>Intra-elite competition:Favorable economic conjuncture for the elites results in increasing numbers of elites
and elite aspirants, as well as runaway growth of elite consumption levels. Elite overproduction results when elite numbers and appetites exceed the ability of the
society to sustain them, leading to spiraling intraelite competition and conflict.
>State fragility:A fiscal crisis reduces the state’s control of the coercive apparatus (police and army). The state’s legitimacy crisis undermines the willingness of the elites and the population to defend state institutions against the assault by radical groups.
>External factors:Whereas the first three mechanisms are internal, societal stability is also affected by
external factors: geopolitical (e.g., foreign support for the opposition), geo-economic (shifting prices of international commodities), and geo-cultural (a successful

About a year ago I read something linking food price to riots in Egypt, but I have no source at hand right now.

>inceldom

I don't like tracking that as much as tracking baby-havers for two reasons: 1. I think there is a big psychological difference between baby-havers and people who merely have a steady partner, with the baby-havers being far more busy with their private life. 2. It's harder to track steady relationships unless the country under consideration is fairly conservative (meaning it's practically the same as measuring who is married).

Other stuff to measure: median income (adjusted based on local purchasing power), Gini index of income inequality, average lifespan, suicides. And let's not underestimate the psychological weight of disappointed expectations. It's not so much the low lifespan or low wealth or extreme Gini that matters per se, but the change relative to the past. It's plausible that the disappointment is stronger when adjacent countries are doing much better.

Today is the first day of the Trial. It begins at 9am CST.

Jury Selection took 12 days. 12/12 Jurors selected. (7 women, 5 men) 3/3 Alternate Jurors Selected. (2 women, 1 man)

131 Potential Jurors were reviewed. Some dismissed before being reviewed in court. Many reviewed in court. On March 17th, 2 other previously selected jurors were dismissed due to settlement news.

Supreme Court has allowed conviction for BOTH 2nd and 3rd degree murder. Also a conviction for 2nd degree Manslaughter is on the table.

Judge blocked motions from the defense on delays or relocation. Also ruled in favor of the state on a previous arrest in May 2019.

Floyd Family was given a settlement of 27 million dollars which will be paid by the taxpayers of Minneapolis.

The male alternative juror is the 15th juror. If all of the 14 previous jurors show up? Then he will be dismissed (He's pro-cop but passed for for cause.) If not? He's an alternate.

Official Swearing In and Opening Statements is planned for Day 1.

Federal grand jury charges 4 former Minneapolis cops with violating George Floyd’s civil rights, AP reports

>A federal grand jury has indicted four former Minneapolis officers for violating the civil rights of George Floyd, the Black man who died last spring during an arrest in that city.

>The indictment nearly three weeks after one of those ex-cops, Derek Chauvin, was convicted at a state trial of murder and manslaughter in the death of Floyd.
>The Chicago Tribune last week reported that on the heels of that verdict federal prosecutors, who had spent months gathering evidence, were preparing to ask a grand jury in U.S. District Court to indict Chauvin and the other three cops involved in arresting Floyd.

The Ls for Derek Chauvin just don't stop.

Derek Chauvin indictment: Boy, 14, held by throat, hit with flashlight in 2017

>Derek Chauvin has been indicted on federal civil rights charges for a 2017 incident in which he’s accused of holding a 14-year-old boy down by the throat and striking the child multiple times in the head with a flashlight.

>These federal charges come at the same time as a separate indictment charging Chauvin and three other former Minneapolis police officers – Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao – with federal civil rights crimes for their roles in the death of George Floyd.
>Prosecutors filed a motion to admit the 2017 case against Chauvin as evidence in his Hennepin County criminal trial for Floyd’s murder, but Judge Peter Cahill denied that motion. Chauvin was found guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter on April 20, following about 10 hours of jury deliberations.

His bail has been revoked and he's been convicted. He's going to stay in jail awaiting a prison sentence. Pretty sure once you're sentenced you sit in prison during the appeal process.

Communication from Colombia's ULET(Unión Libertaria Estudiantil y del Trabajo)-AIT
Today, different anarchist groups, collectives and organizations, publicly manifest ourselves against the tax reform's hikes on essential subsistence goods. But not only because we consider the reform as an organized robbery to the pockets of the working class, peasants, service workers, self-employed and freelancers.

Why is it so hard to believe that many CIA members/politicians are normal people like the rest of us and, just like the rest of us, use social media and have unironic beliefs

If the CIA supports socially liberal ideas like LGBT, maybe what you see is what you get. They're are many fags that apart of the CIA, army and govt. So no, they aren't "co opting" anything. They unironically support LGBT

They don't have to cater to you because you are not powerful and catering isn't profitable

Pfizer announces windfall profits as low-income countries denied vaccines
>The drug maker’s windfall profits are inseparable from the US government’s refusal to share the rights to produce vaccines.

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/05/05/pers-m05.html

The extreme inequality of vaccine distribution has become a discernible fact in this ongoing pandemic. Based on this observation the ruling circles are using "intellectual property" in order to safeguard the profit interests of Big Pharma Corporations. This is regardless of the millions of death this may cause around the world. For this reason the existing Capitalist Social order is not compatible with the basic needs of humanity.
