The military (American, obviously).
So just the grunts or the same glowies that direct these guys into pointing guns at non compliant narratives? If told to, they'd kill you and me, no questions asked.
No woke bullshit required.
The military worked hard to get the non compliant types out, the vax was a big part of that. Those who refused were expelled. Hate to say it but the establishment made them as complacent as the city cops. If they're told to stand down while riots plunder your home/business in the name of "racial justice" they will. Your only hope is being in a state that grants strengths to your local counties. Stand your ground is the most important right to maintain.
Institutions that I believe in the potential of, but have currently lost their way:
People are a product of their environment, the western family unit was relatively strong before all the viable land was bought and every industry was co-opted. Divorces in the US have skyrocketed since the 70s. I agree with you in that there needs to be a unifying spiritual presence, but when the only temples are all franchised out churches then what do you expect? Every cultural institutions claim to enrich spirituality, yet these husks have no substitute other than self enrichment/consumerism lul.
It's my view that a certain generation just needs to fucking die off already and take their decades old philosophies with them, allowing for literally every other generation to take the reins and institute the changes required for their success.
This seems less likely than my hopes that people [

boomer theories actually worked and were actually necessary in the 80's. But we don't live in the 80's and haven't for a very long time,
Yes, but the boomer pitfalls go all the way back to LBJ with the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965. It was never meant to last, it was merely an easy way out for the privalaged at the time. It only worked in their circumstances.
they generated value for society through the creation of goods
Usually stolen, making them no great minds to follow, but more so dirty pirates. See Pyschopaths vs Schizos.
there are something like ~10 billionaires who made their money through hedge funds and VC. Which is to say that for every one of them who hit pay dirt through ingenuity and entrepreneurship, there are 10 who made their money via gaming the system
Cool, what's their names? And addresses preferably? These are the people who call the shots on if the economy goes into a recession or if we must fight a war to get their net worth back up.
I'm not asking anyone to disbelieve their eyes - it is definitely tough out there and tougher than it used to be. But think harder about what the secondary, tertiary, and fourth order consequences of destruction would be. There is quite a lot that the middle class westerners who attend these protests take for granted and would stand to lose if they actually got their way.
Describe to us what they would lose? I think the average person here can go without their netflix entertainment product
Your local car dealer who make a couple million a year is not the problem, despite participating in one of the purest forms of capitalism.
(If you want me to delete this part, I will) but I never said it was the local franchisees that were the issue. I maintained that it was the hedgefund fucks/bankers.
