People around the world, get ready. This is coming to a neighborhood near you, and sooner than you think.

We are reaching, if we haven't already, a tipping point created by too many unemployed, unsocialized, angry people with nothing left to lose. The sad fact of this century is that there are far more people in this world than there will EVER be jobs for, and it is only getting worse every year. Add to this mess a huge cutback around the world in the social welfare programs that have been keeping the lid on this horrible situation and you see the results everywhere you look.

Worst of it is, there is no solution for too many of these. At least, none I would care to contemplate.
