As demonstrations, protests, riots, and outright revolutions become more common throughout the West, a crucial question arises. Which way do the praetorians, the police and military, go? From Richard Enos at collective-evolution.com:
- The Facts:A protest about working conditions and pay on the part of police officers in France dubbed the ‘Blue Vest’ protests adds a new wrinkle of complexity to where the Yellow Vests movement may go.
- Reflect On:What would be the consequence of a collective awakening to higher truth on the part of a country’s law enforcement officials?
As the motives and mandate of the Yellow Vests movement come more clearly into focus, and the sense of power and potential within individual citizens continues to rise, not only in France but in other countries as well, another development occurring alongside the protests has the potential to take things to a whole new level:
Police in France have repeatedly warned about fatigue and frustration seeping into the ranks in recent years and it appears the month-long and often violent yellow vest protests has pushed them over the edge.
They have already warned the government that they are at breaking point and on Wednesday they will launch their own protest movement, which has earned them the title “les gilets bleus” – the blue vests, after the protective body gear that they wear.–France’s The Local
