The Onion Peels In Argentina

The Onion continues to peel away around the world and Chapmans' vision becomes reality. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so a video must be worth ten thousand words. Here's a visual of Argentina:

There's eleven more parts to the documentary if it informed, shocked, changed, or inspired you.

You say it can't happen here. Don't forget:

Kent State, Ohio - 1968

Civil Rights Movement - 1960's

The New Tea Party - 2009

Hurricane Katrina Looters - New Orleans

Greece - December 2008

Myanmar -2007

Bangkok - April 2009
Suburban Paris - 2005, 2007

"In the U.S., the Tea Parties mentioned above were rather like, well, tea parties. In France, the demonstrations are large, but the tone is not yet violent. According to Time Magazine, millions marched in that country but the disruption was a "comparatively modest nuisance.' In London, the "Financial Fools Day' protest against the G-20 was much larger and more focused than the April 2000 demonstration agains the IMF. And this time things turned ugly fast: 'At first, jazz bands, jugglers and drummers lent a carnival atmosphere to the gathering, but within an hour, anger at the collapse of the financial system turned to violence.' But the protest is a long way from the violent bear market finale that Elliott Wave Financial Forecast was referring to in 2000. At this point, the movement is just 'a vague attack on consumerism, coupled with anti-capitalist rhetoric,' which Daniel Finkelstein of the London Times points out is 'a total dead end,' revolution-wise. When the bottom is at hand or already in place, the rage will be greater and more widespread, and there will be no question what the rebellion is about."
