British Riots: Elites "Shocked" The Poor Are Rising Up Against Brutal Austerity Measures
And I want you to see this small passage:
This is so well put. And so true. The privileged ones throughout the world need to pay attention to the point made in this paragraph I have quoted. We ignore this reality to our peril.
The so-called leaders who have taken three solid days to return from their foreign holidays to a country in flames did not anticipate this. The people running Britain had absolutely no clue how desperate things had become. They thought that after thirty years of soaring inequality, in the middle of a recession, they could take away the last little things that gave people hope, the benefits, the jobs, the possibility of higher education, the support structures, and nothing would happen. They were wrong.
