Default Mass protests on the rise

Mass protests happens around the world. Hong Kong, Chile, Sudan, Iraq, Bolivia, Liban and many more had to handle this problem and at this point we can consider this year as year of biggest social unrest since Arab Spring or fall of communism in Central-East Europe in 1989.

While what start a mass protests is different in each place like slowly crushed civil rights in HK, though political corruption in Czech Republic and Liban to public ticket prices in Chile, their global occurrence is mindblowing. Some common ground can be find out like economic and political inequality, poor public services (education, transportation, healthcare), bad labour market especially for young people (lack of permanent and future-proof work, low wages, poor protection of employees' rights), prices of basic goods (energy, fuel, food, housing etc) overcrowded metro areas which had to accept steady influx of new dwellers each year.

Anyway, if you ask me, this ongoing situations around the globe is probably one of best evidence for ongoing deep problems within modern world and what you would deal with mass protests counted in weeks which easily paralize a big metro areas?

My sister you say if we wanted to win the cold war we should bomb them with Sears and Roebucks catalogs. One of those comedians from the former commie block said all the people he knew could tell the state propaganda was a lie just by the number of cars in the news stories about how bad it was in the USA.

I think/hope that a lot of people are waking up to the fact that the NWO/SWAMP wants them dead, only a few million minions to serve the rich will be allowed.

Communication is another issue. It’s easier to organize and harder to stop the protests. Every advance in media has changed the political landscape. Too down methods of communication helped enable statism from the fascists to the communists to the progressives. I think bottom up distributed media will help enable populism much like the printing press did for our founding fathers.

You might be right according to World Economic Forum raport, countries with uncensored internet correlates strongly with general government disapproval.

source:
https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2019/...e-and-populism

And now icing on the top of this raport

We find that the expansion of 3G networks increases internet usage, decreases the public’s confidence in the national government, and increases the perception that the government is corrupt. The magnitudes are substantial. An increase of regional 3G coverage from zero to full coverage of a region reduces confidence in the government by 6% on average (relative to the mean of 51%) and decreases the perception that the government is not corrupt by 4% (the mean is 23%). ... Importantly, mobile internet decreases confidence in government only when the internet is not censored (these findings are illustrated by Figure 1). This result is consistent with the view that censorship of the internet is effective. Furthermore, the effect of the internet on confidence in government is particularly large when traditional media is censored while the internet is free, implying that the public uses the internet to get political news when there are no other sources of political information. Consistent with this explanation, we find that the effect of the internet is stronger in non-OECD countries than in OECD countries, and it is stronger for rural residents, as well as for less educated, poor, and unemployed individuals.

In particular, we find that the number of actual incidents of government corruption is more strongly associated with higher perceptions of corruption when there is access to mobile internet.
