First Italian bank failures, then Greek strikes, and now Spanish protests: Europe is back at square one where the only thing fixed are the local football matches.

Agreed.  As long as most people are showing up to "protest", then there is still a belief that the system can be fixed by using the system itself.  Revolutions don't happen in public squares.  Those are symbolic events which actually meet with the approval of the powers-that-be.  Real revolutions happen in homes and residential neighborhoods where the elites live.   They happen at airports.  They happen *inside* the halls of government, with shouting, torching and citizens arresting elites.   They happen in factories.  They happen in banks.  Real revolutions are messy affairs where the elites start to flee, leaving their lives behind.

All of these live-cam events are contained demonstrations.   Essentially they are a form of "speech".  When the riot cops walk away (or join the protestors) then things are about to change.  Until then this carefully managed and sanctioned behavior.

I'll start being impressed with the "revolution" when politicians are being dragged from bed and incarcerated by the people, and things start to get out of control.

The bigger the games, the higher the turnout, the more efficient their propaganda is proving to work.

Romans put on the best games and biggest festivals just before the shit hit the fan. Authorities knew the collapse was coming and that people were noticing how the currency was diluted further and further. Emperor put on on bigger games with more fanfare and galore so that the people were distracted.

Mankind has not changed one iota or otherwise progressed socially for well over 2000 years.

What comes next is just as certain as what followed after the glory of Rome started to crumble.

The fact is that most folks are clueless.  But the real reason is that after struggling to make ends meet they want to have some fun and don't consider it terrible to do a little partying.  I enjoyed the game, food, commercials and friends and don't feel a twinge of guilt.    Sometimes a football game is just a football game. What do you want those folks to do, by the way, instead of enjoying themselves for a night?

I agree with you tango, but the problem is that the american people haven't been doing just a little partying, our whole economy is built on feeding gluttony and by doing so enslavement through debt. I realize the average american has so much shit on their plate that any chance they have of thinking about bigger issues is fleeting at best, but they also have to realize that the past 30yrs of so called economic progress is one debt fueled illusion and that after 30yrs of monthly payments they will find that they own absolutely nothing. My only hope for my fellow american is that they put just half of the enthusiasm they have for sports to speak out on things that actually matter.

Although I appreciate the fact that people are taking a stand and generating movement, I am not sure if any protest really knows what the problem is.

The problem is not how many hours worked = pay vs austerity, it is not about health care...it is about the crux of the problem:  what is the problem?

The problem is that a cabal of the establishment took over the banking system (or started the banking system in the first place) and have instituted a credit system that is systematically bankrupting the people of the world.  This has been done by getting off of a sound money system (gold and silver is money and nothing else is, by definition of the word MONEY) and issuing debt like it is going out of style.

Now we must make a move against this cabal and we must take back the money supply.

Why MSM ignores the biggest bank bailout from the Dutch Govt of a systemically important bank is mind blowing. I question why?

http://uk.reuters.com/article/2013/02/01/uk-dutch-finance-cbank-idUKBRE9...

One of the major bailouts and FT carries it on Page 9!! Wtf?

10 billion Euros, doesnt it have any value no more? Where are the tax payers of the Dutch Govt?

ABN was nationalised, ING was sold, Rabo was downgraded and its Sarasin bank sold to Safra and now SNS is nationalised, but the IMF and World Bank on behalf of US and Europe advised Indonesia, Thailand and Latin America to shut down their banks back in 1997/8 and now they nationalise their own banks?!!

Is this objective and unbiased advice and support when it was needed most by those poor countries or is it another form of plundering their assets?

I knew it the minute it happened...thanks to iPhone alerts....I have been waiting and observing last few days, why no one is analysing, criticising, debating or discussing this EUR 10bn bailout, as if it was a non event.

It is a huge event. One of the largest bank bailouts since Lehman and who knows how many more billions will be thrown once it becomes opaque and nationalised! 

If emerging countries nationalise banks, it is called terrible and indicates their 'weakness' but when Ireland, Iceland, UK and Netherlands, and Germany (read HSH Nordbank) or Austria (Hypo) etc nationalise, where are the war cries?

I am extraordinarily worried about what is to come.

Government debt levels are unsustainable; the general population has lost faith in leadership in general (European corruption, US politicians, bank heads, corporate leaders, church leaders, etc... ). The US President is talking about guns, and despite the travesty of last December, he is not focusing on THE most critical issue facing the western world... the financial crisis that is to shortly visit the US, and the entire world. The majority of jobs lost in this great depression were those of the middle class and if you look at the employment date, the majority of job creation is coming from low paying jobs. The middle class baby boomers are being crushed and the youth are hopeless.

Bill Gross summarized it today when he said that once assets have too much risk and no return... that's when you'll see the mass migration into hard assets like gold and onset of hyperinflation. His statement is so #uckin plain to see, its simplicity and elegence is brilliant.

I'm not sure what will trigger the oncoming collapse. It will likely be a black swan event, but for sure the way the spring is being loaded, when it snaps for whatever reason, the results will be the same.

I really, really, really don't want to live in a world of $10k gold and $600 silver, and its coming and there's not a #uckin thing we can do about it. I never thought growing up that I'd see our western way of living collapsing as it is in the process of happening.
