Europe's Scariest Heatmap

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Readers already know that when it comes to Europe, the scariest chart, from a political, economic, financial and social perspective, is that showing youth unemployment - youth, which engaged in idle, non-productive activity is a powder keg for both future economic instability and social upheaval. The monthly update is presented below. This time, we are happy to also present the "scariest heatmap" that goes with it, showing the geographic breakdown of unemployment in the critical 15-24 age groups. Those looking for geopolitical hotspots in the coming months and years, look no further than the dark shaded areas.

 

Europe's youth unemployment rate pushed higher once again to a record-breaking 24.4% - where Greece was in Dec 2008. What is crushingly awful is the 57.6% youth unemployment in Greece and 56.5% in Spain that leaves a social fire burning in the belly of the nations. Italy also saw a major move to record highs above 37% youth unemployment and France is now above 27% also... recovery?

The obvious way to solve youth unemployment is to have the youth leave the country. Problem solved and we can all go back to getting free stuff from the government. Solving problems has never been easier. :)

Don't worry, each of these countries is headed by Masonic politicians and CEOs at the behest of Illuminati Money Creators.  What could go wrong???

Anyone ever check out those weird Masonic hands and pyramid in front of the IRS headquarters?  Note the "Bill of Rights is human and fragile" inscription.  How about that "We the people" on the pyramid.  Remember, your founding fathers were Masons, had slaves, and "We the People" referred to them, the elite.  This country has been run by Masons at the behest of bankers since the beginning.  Now you know the Masonic secret and you didn't even have to perform a bizzare and morally defunct ritual to be the wiser.

Yes, as crazy as it may seem to the uninitiate, the Vatican and the Bankers have joined forces. Knights of Malta became Freemasonry. Jesuits are Illuminati. They were opposition, but realize synergy today. Money creation (London), war (DC), Religion (Vatican). Control what the mind knows to control the profane. Reveiling too many secrets.

Nope Sam, you're far away from being crazy :-)

The Illuminati are a kind of secret world government, their main goal is to create the New World Order (NWO), a fascist-communist global 1984-style dictatorship where every citizen is totally controlled with an implanted RFID chip. One of the exoteric key institutions of the illuminations are the Bilderbergs, for example.

Within the illuminati one can distinguish 3 circles:

* exoteric (outer) circle: e.g. Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and others. Many on this level (e.g. one-time Bilderberg participants) are more or less clueless what's really going on, but their egos are pleased that they are so close to those with the real power.

* inner circle: e.g. regular Bilderberg participants

* esoteric circles: e.g. Grand Masters of occult societies. That's where the NWO (New World Order) plans are erected. If these plans are implemented or not depends a lot on whether the outer circle can be convinced.

HERE: http://bit.ly/KHpJGw

 

Who is the Bilderberg Club?

Since 1954 about 150 ‘high priests of globalization' mainly from Europe and North America meet in secrecy each year in order to make far-reaching decision and to take orders ( SEE http://bit.ly/L1pTZZ ). Bilderberg is the exoteric (outer) key instance of the illuminati ( SEE http://bit.ly/KHpJGw ), the secret world government that I fondly call the ‘reptiles' because clairvoyants perceive reptile-like entities in their aura (which cherish from the fear of human beings).

Another reason for this nickname: the illuminati have their roots in the BROTHERHOOD OF THE SNAKE, probably the oldest secret society of the world (needless to say that snakes are reptiles). This also explains why the international symbol for the US$ oddly looks like a snake around a rod, and the $ can't be deducted from the name... Without doubt, that's the SUMERIAN SEMICADUCEUS, the old symbol for the Cult of the Snake.

- - - - - -

"The Illuminati knows the people are going to find out about them ...the best thing they can do is call your attention towards something else and say that's that. So they have reflected the attention on Zionism ...The only problem is that most of the people in the Illuminati aren't Jews. Their founders were Jews by birth, but not by religion. But most of its leaders, except for the Rothschilds, are Gaelic: Scotch or French Gaelic. It's got nothing to do with Jews. My family & most of the people serving on the Grand Druid, their family trees go back to the pagan temples in Rome & Greece & England, to the original priesthood. Some go back as far as Egypt & Babylon. It's got nothing to do with the Jews."

[David Livingstone writes: "Elizabeth Hirschmann and Donald Yates in their study, "When Scotland was Jewish", documents the Jewish origin of many of Scotland's leading families, beginning with the Sinclairs and Stuarts, but also the families of Forbes, Bruce, Campbell, Gordon, Caldwell, Fraser, Leslie, Christie, Kennedy, ad Cowan (Cohen). http://www.terrorism-illuminati.com/book/holy_grail.html]

Todd makes clear the Rothschilds, a family of Sabbatean Jewish Cabalists, top the Illuminati hierarchy:

"The Rothschilds lead the Illuminati and in every country they have a family ...being the head of the Illuminati. In the United States, we have the Rockefellers. David Rockefeller is both the head of the Council of Foreign Relations and the Trilateral [Commission] which is the name of the Illuminati within the United States."

"On the top of each pyramid you will see a capstone with an eye in it. The capstone is the Rothschild Family or Tribunal that rules the Illuminati; they were the creators of it. The eye is Lucifer, their god and their voice. The first 3 top blocks are on every pyramid. The top block is what I was initiated into, the council of 13 called the Grand Druid Council. They only take orders from the Rothschilds and nobody else. They're their private priesthood. The Council of 33 is directly under them, that is the 33 highest Masons in the World. The Council of 500, some of the richest people and conglomerates in the World-[including the Bilderbergs and the families like the Duponts and Kennedys.]

No disrespect to the victims, but you fail to realize that we are a nation subject to much larger conspiracies that were successfully "pulled off".  After the first 10 or so, you start to become suspicious, especially when the facts don't add up.  As they say, "9/11, We will remember".  I certainly do.  I remember WT7 coming down when nothing even hit it.  I remember and have a photo of columns severed by demolition thermate at the angle necessary to implode a building.  To quote the smirking chimp, "Fool me once, shame on you... fool me twice, we won't get fooled again"....

What does this chart mean, exactly? At least in the Netherlands, almost everyone in the age range 15-24 is still in school! And if they hold a job it is something like waiter or supermarket work - hardly the core of a labor force. I would find the 25-30 age range much more interesting, since that represents an age people should be having a (real) job.

Andrew,

Maybe not you personally, but most of the under-25's I've met in the US of A spent most of high school drunk, stoned, or both. They seem to expect jobs that pay $50k and up for little or no effort. It's no wonder to me that the group that's shown the most job growth is 50-64; employers know these people are going to go to work, and that their expectations are grounded in reality.

I'm 55, and I spent five years working in call centres at mimimum wage in the last decade because my sector collapsed in 2000. I finally found a decent job as a data analyst, but it took a long time, and I'm still not paid what I'm worth. Regardless, I show up every day and make an effort because that's what you have to do; I'm afraid many of your peers haven't realized it yet.

FrankDrakman the 55 plus crowd are the parents of the under 25 crowd. Your crowd is primarily responsible for how that crowd has turned out.

I don't think it's fair to talk about your virtues and work ethic and extrapolate that to your "crowd" and completely abdicate your crowd's responsibility to make sure those virtues have been passed on to your children. If you are going to hold the under 25 accountable you should call a spade a spade and admit your failure as parents as well.

Looking at that second graph there appears to be two clear points of departure, Lehmans collapse, and then again in mid-2012.

 

Left wondering what the areas outside the europe look like???

The fix is to change the stats. Don't count the unemployed in Europe. Only count those who are collecting unemployment insurance like in the US.

Then the picture looks far better.

Start deleting any negative stats and only the positive ones. It works in the US.

Threaten any rating agencies in the US that downgrade you. The US sends it's IRS, FBI and cops over to harass any rating agency that intends on lowering a rating. Intimidation works very well in the US.

Cmon, this is sooooo BIAS, in Lithuania part-time jobs for 15years almost old do not exist, instead, teenagers go to Basketball, art academies etc. Thus, take away 15-19years old stats, cause this effect take place at least until they graduate from school. Most of the Europe works like that..

I agree.  Look at the unemployment rate for 20-35 yr olds, especially males.  Thats where the geopolitical instability will be.  Also, China with its massively skewed sex ratio.  If China experiences a dramatic slowdown, a bunch of young men with no job and no pussy is a recipe for disaster.

It is certainly an issue but not for 'american' nations.

'Americans' developed the procedure to solve this issue the 'american' way:

-pour that too much of people onto a third party.

'Americans' are triggering a new wave of colonization.

No issue for European nations. On the contrary, it will create jobs opportunities and will justify 'american' politicians in their jobs.

How? Simple. All these younsters are 'american'. The world belongs to 'americans'
Anywhere they will drop in, they will consider themselves the elected of the land who must be handed down the best the place has to offer. Dont expect them to merge with the locals. They will require the locals to speak their language, take up their habits etc

Tension to come. A demand for security from this young 'americans' who wont drop their 'american' citizenship.

'American' states will step in and wrestle the third country to offer the best for this 'american' youth.

Quite a lot of opportunities to come.

But expect no turmoil in 'american' nations from this youth. They will turn on the heat in the third party country.

The way 'americans' work.

Undubiously and by oceans far better than 'Americans'

Show how many places in the world were forced in the Chinese languages when not originally using it as their language.

Compare with the number of places forced by 'americans' to adopt on their national level languages chosen by 'americans'

Chinese are out of league players.

Telling they underperform will still be hyperbolic.

'Americans', when you look for people that wont integrate, that is the deal. So much of it that on the world scale, it grew into the only deal.

Bear with it.

There are many languages in this world. To facilitate communication between people, there must be a common language. English seems to be the best candidate. Besides, you need to speak English to fly an airplane, so might as well learn.

I do not think people should lose their own language; I just think that it would be better if people retain their native tongue, and then learn English as a second language.

Chinese is a terrible language (as a candidate for international communication, not as a primary regional language), since most Chinese only know a small fraction of their own characters and have too much difference even between their own regional dialects.

Chinese citizenism citizens developed the procedure to solve this issue the Chinese citizenism citizen way.

-pour that too much of people onto all of the earth.

Chinese citizenism citizens are triggering a new wave of colonization.

The issue for European nations: the Chinese citizenism project "Blobbing Up Europe".

This crisis has confirmed this region of the world on that path and Chinese citizenism citizens would be stupid to let this opportunity ruin.

Anywhere they will drop down their pantaloons the roadside on, they will consider themselves the elected of the land who must be handed down the best the place has to offer. Dont expect them to merge with the locals. They will require the locals to speak their language, take up their roadside excretory habits etc.

Tension to come. A demand for unencumbered roadsides from this Chinese citizenism citizens who will drop their Brown Baby Maos prodigiously.

Chinese citizenism citizens will step in and wok the dogs of all third countries to offer the best stir fried canine in spicy ginger sauce.

As Chinese citizenism citizens advocate bigger than biggest is still not enough, they even managed to get much more than blobbing up.

Something left on the side of the road but that is bigger than biggest when one considers all Chinese citizenism mantra is sure to clog up the street sweeping equipment.

Quite a lot of stinking to come, courtesy of Chinese citizenism blobbing up brown roadside pingoism.

Unemployment is bullish because it encites riots.  Riots produce lots of broken windows (and broken other things).  Repairing broken windows creates jobs!  We should be jealous of all the economic potential these high unemployment regions have.

The powder keg that is becoming pressurised by yoof unemployment does not worry me per se, because even huge numbers of older people agree with the view of tearing down the current political/corporate system which has now disappeared up its own anal orifice through corruption, vested interests, corporatism and everything else that is wrong.

What does worry me is that young people very often tend to be politically Left-leaning fools who believe in statism and the fair share syndrome. Whereas older folks have often learnt the hard way that neither actually work to improve national prosperity because at the end of the day there will always be inequality.

So having torn down the status quo, there will be another battle over what to replace it with. This might polarize the nation by age or class.

Erm. I appreciate that some people are politically Left from cradle to crave and want to live on the taxpayer all their life. But I also believe many people - who may lean towards the Left in their younger lfe because they own little in the way of assets/wealth and want a share of other peoples' - move towards the Right as they get older and accumulate stuff themselves. That's what I was getting at. The only other issue to mention is whether the Right is genuinely of the Right at all nowadays, or whether it's just another face of socialism working towards ever bigger government.

Seems a rather nice descriptive chart that, when an economy is in a crisis, economic activity retracts from the edges and focuses on the center.   There are advantages in being in the EU of course, but in Athens, Seville, and Sicily, you live at the tail end of the whip. 

Back in the not-so-distant past, the way you got those angry kids off the streets was to give them a weapon and march on your neighbors.   We'll see how retro the 21st century becomes.
