I noticed that there is a common theme running through riots and protests around the globe. A local issue becomes the basis of a major riot. The question that comes to mind is: how can people get so worked up over such a small issue? A least that wonderment is what comes from explanations by talking heads. Later news feeds clean up the riots so that they seem to be peaceful protests. The impression I get from all this is that governments are on the verge of not being able to control popular dissatisfaction with government from boiling over. WEF beware, remember Musolini!
Spanish politics are important to follow, because Spain is a bellweather nation that gives us insights into what is to be a common response to the current global political scene.
