The verdict in the Derek Chauvin case (the police officer with his knee on George Floyd’s neck) is going to a flashpoint, regardless of which way the verdict goes. From James Howard Kunstler at kunstler.com:
How reassured were you by Joe Biden’s speech to the nation Thursday night? The more his managers pretend that he’s in charge of anything, the more unlikely it actually seems. So, they wound him up — Adderall would be my guess, to fortify the attention span — and rolled him out like the mummy of Amenhotep III, and one could just imagine the leaders of this-and-that foreign nation cringing (or cackling) in their seats to see this embodiment of collapsing America go through his spiritless ritual motions.
Mostly what did not fly is the idea that the Covid-19 virus can still be used as a cattle-prod for herding citizens into feedlots of compliance — Americans are buffalos, not steers. They are determined now to take care of business, and the main business of people with any initiative will be to rig up some sort of gainful occupation while the lumbering old systems break down. They will do it despite orders to operate at fifty percent capacity, or close at nine o’clock, or be handcuffed by rinky-dink regulations. They’ll have to get creative to figure out ways around all the official impediments to making a living. This group of the not-yet-undead will resist further attempts to restrict their liberty and to steal the fruits of their own enterprise to pay for other people’s failures or lack of enterprise.

The chaos has been long-planned, designed to increase the power of government and further subjugate governments’ victims. From Gary D. Barnett at lewrockwell.com:
“Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
~ Martin Luther King, Jr. — A Gift of Love: Sermons from Strength to Love and Other Preachings”.
Revolution my ass! What is happening in this country is a structured and long-planned chaos meant to use every tactic from fake viruses to staged riots by pathetic societal criminals in order to allow for more lockdowns, more tyranny, and more civil unrest. This is done so that government instilled forcible control over the entire population is possible. Anyone still acting or reacting to any partisan nonsense and lies is either ignorant beyond recognition, or is simply without intellect. Pro-Trump and anti-Trump are both lost in stupidity. The reality of the future is much more important than these political beasts and false arguments by any group claiming to be treated unfairly or claiming to be special. No one is more special than any other regardless of color or cultural difference. Real racism knows no boundary of color, as any humans that harm others strictly due to culture differences are racists, whether they commit any physical act or promote those acts.

You can fool most of the people most of the time, but you can’t fool reality any of the time.
The reigning chaos reflects perfectly what passes for thought in millions of minds. Minds that have been taught that reality is whatever one believes it to be. That reason is a superstition and is inferior to random feelings and emotions. That observation, hypotheses, experimentation, discovery, and science itself are akin to voodoo rituals. That consumption precedes production and is morally superior to it. That anyone’s work, income and wealth are subject to anyone else’s proclaimed need. That actions have no consequences.
Rioters and looters are faithfully adhering to the distilled essence of what our rulers and intellectuals have been telling them for decades: If you need it, or just want it, it’s yours to have or destroy. They are simply eliminating the government middleman. The only surprise is that it didn’t happen long ago.
The Age of Chaos has arrived. Violence is accomplishing what violence always accomplishes—destruction, ruin, and death. The only theoretical justification for government is that it employs force to protect its citizens from violence—invasion, violence against persons or property, and the indirect violence implicit in procuring and keeping value through fraud or extortion.
