They believe they have contained the spark with their fraudulent election victory; installation of an empty senile vassal as their conduit for the great reset; having their media mouthpieces propagate the falsity of a right wing white supremacist insurrection at the Capital; crushing dissent by censoring the truth through totalitarian social media conglomerates; proceeding with an impeachment farce based on Trump telling his supporters to peacefully protest the fraudulent election outcome; and threatening to destroy the lives of all vocal Trump supporters.
I am highly doubtful they have contained the spark. I believe there are smoldering embers just waiting to be stirred into a conflagration which will engulf the entire world in a fiery purging of the existing social order, which has exhausted itself and needs to be cleansed.

FOURTH TURNING DETONATION
[That is a plausible assessment.
So when and how will this conflagration happen?
I’m not seeing it happen unless there is a major trigger like hyperinflation or door-to-door gun confiscation, that sort of thing.—Joe]
Inflation is on the way.
It will destroy the middle class. Imagine just ten million gun owners who have lost everything.
The barriers around our ruling elite are just the beginning.
We are living in interesting times.
Your right Joe, it historically takes a wide spread shock of some kind to get people to act. And even then it’s generally a small portion of the population that acts. Most will go along to get along. No matter what happens.
American to me are somewhat different. More industrious? If shown a better way to build. They will. And that to me is the key.
Look at the response Trump got. And he wasn’t even really fighting. If given a better way to move forward. We will.
I think that’s why the elite want to control media so much. They aren’t that smart. And can’t compete with even the worst of freedom lovers. Trump once again the example.
They will over step. They always do.
All we can do is be ready to help people stand back up. And explain a better future. The pray it works.
The powder keg is the existence of (at least) two mutually hostile tribes in the same political space. The spark is totally unpredictable. Sometimes it is more or less accidental like Russian Bloody Sunday or the Constantinople sports riots or Irish Bloody Sunday 2.0 where the tensions boil over into widespread violence. Sometimes it is planned by small groups that are sort of off the radar of the general public, like Irish Bloody Sunday 1.0 and 1.5 or the Jewish Revolt 1944 model. But for every planned uprising there are probably 1000 we never heard about because nothing actually happened. But the powder keg is there, waiting.
As long as the beer flows, the football games and other distractions are broadcast and people aren’t starving the commies in power are relatively safe. Of course eventually the house of cards economy MUST collapse. When that happens the beer stops flowing, the cable TV and streaming internet gets shut off and stomachs start grumbling. By then the left will have succeeded in creating their own Schutzstaffel, finished converting the FBI into a new age Gestapo and outlawed all private firearm ownership. Then it may be too late to do anything about the criminals in power. As Pogo stated a long time ago “we have met the enemy and he is us”.
I’m betting on economic collapse.
Often, in the corporate world, someone will come into a management position (usually a very high one) promising to “change the culture.”
In saying this, they betray a lot of things. Most importantly, the fact that they haven’t got a clue where culture actually comes from.
You can fire everyone and start over, or make some tweaks here and there and settle for a few small changes over time. Maybe you can also piss everyone off by making larger changes & causing massive confusion in the organization. As far as I can see it, those are the options.
Pissing everyone off is never a good idea.
Been there twice. It is hard to do but when the culture is deeply dysfunctional and subverting the mission, you have to try. One time, it just failed. We made some improvements around the edges but didn’t really affect the core problem. Then it got worse. Other time, we did succeed in changing the culture and transformed a backwater into a dynamic organization. In this case, the culture appreciated the leadership and the transformation because it meant good things for all the players. Then turnover happened and the organization faded into the woodwork.
By the way, organizational theory has substantial predictive value in such matters. It is deeply cynical so you need a strong stomach.
