    I feel like we’ve gone back in time to around 1820: the plague from China, racism is a thing... Next we’ll be burning witches.

    Trump is a moron, a fucking asshole. But for anyone who is not blinded they can see what is going on the last few days and how the death of that one guy is used by groups who want nothing good about anyone other than themselves, to overthrown him. It's nothing new. The tactics are the same, the excuses tend to change. Governments have been attacked for years now all over the world.
    Willing sheep are always available, even more so now with modern communications.
    It's a shame really there is not one proper good West leader to fix things, but I guess that's the story current generations will leave to the future.

    You mean for millennia, ever since they've existed? Historically, it is true that pretty much every revolution had someone in the background pushing their own agenda (be it an elite forwarding an ideology or something else). Also historically, you can't get people to join a revolution unless they are already really, really pissed off, most of the time for a good reason.

    The French Revolution was a bourgeois revolution, financed and led by the bourgeoisie, yet, as always, it was carried on the shoulders of common folk. And Marie Antoinette never said "Let them eat cake." None of that changes the fact that people were genuinely hungry and deprived of representation and other rights and wanted to overthrow an obsolete and grotesque regime that would not step down or change by any other means.

    Milošević in 2000? Did the protest leaders get foreign instructions and aid (and later join organizations that essentially offered consultancy on running protests)? Yes. Was the opposition nervous and wanted to avoid the second round of presidential elections by essentially organizing a coup d'etat, claiming that they were robbed in the first round was (the main opposition candidate won the first round very convincingly, but fell just short of the required 50% of the votes, so a second round was to be held with just the two top candidates)? Yes. But did Milošević need to go and did the people actually want him gone by that time, and for good reason? Oh yes.

    Back to the matter at hand, America is a capitalist society of privately owned media. The reporting it gets is par for the course. Open one news portal, you see looting, cops being ran down by vehicles and a president trying to restore order; open another and you see protesters with bloodied faces and people being dragged away by the police, or being gassed so that an increasingly brutal ruler, out of touch with his people, could get out and exploit a photo op. Essentially, that's how it has worked for ages, except the current situation and events are more extreme and more polarizing than usual, making for a sharper contrast. Whether there is also a bit of what is usually American foreign policy for renegade leaders currently happening domestically on top of that, I haven't got the faintest.

    I was talking about the same source (pulling the strings). That's been going on for a limited amount of time compared to the human civilization. :p
    But let's keep this conversation out of this thread. :)

    I promise this is not a blatant self promotion.
    I had this happen to me earlier today while streaming and found it funny, especially the second time.
