Matt Bracken wrote a piece back in 2012 where he outlines a plausible breakdown in social order in the United States. Copy here.
I have a few minor quibbles with the piece. He ignores the young/old axis and, in my opinion, over-weights the correlation between the wealth axis and the urban/non-urban axis.
One thing I do agree with is that "flash-mobs" are likely to be the aggression of choice.
Maybe it is no surprise, but the internet has been scrubbed of nearly all images of violent flash-mobs. I was merely curious to see if I could visually pick out elements of Command-and-Control.
|Are those cop bicycles? Or are those elements of the mob's command-and-control?
It would be interesting to watch some time-lapse video. That is the best way to find the queen bee.
