David Swanson: Lobbyists must be stopped

By davidswanson - Posted on 18 May 2010

I find your open mindedness and very thorough understanding of the major problem that's the topic of the interview to be wholly appreciable, David.

"VIDEO: Economic Crisis Spreads Unrest Globally" (5:49)

by Andrew Gavin Marshall, May 18, 2010

He's interviewed on RT and while it's not long, we can see clearly enough with on-the-ground video footage and from the discussion that the rioting is very serious, still rising, and it's spreading, [widely]. And there is potential, like David said in the above interview on RT or RTAmerica, for similar rioting to occur in the US, but I agree with him about rioting being counter-productive in the US. Whether or not it will be counter-productive in the European countries where rioting is occuring is something I can't predict, because they have different cultures and political systems, but rioting in the US would surely be counter-productive, or at least not beneficial. I tend to think counter-productive is probably what it'd be.
