Anger Translating to Action?

I tend to look to the U.K. as a leading indicator for what will come to the U.S. in trends of governance, the surveilance state and how the population will react to controls or other government actions.

If they hold up as a leading indicator and as mood deepens into a negative trend, expect to see mobs in the U.S. to spring up as cuts in spending go into effect next year. I still think mood is not strong enough here yet and we still have enough Xanax and Prozac flowing in our collective brains to dampen the mass herding impulse for a bit longer, but the dam is weakening and when the break comes, I fear it will be spectacular.
