Sometimes events occur which signal changes of major significance for society as a whole, but the events which cause the change are not recognized as such until after the fact. I am not saying that a bomb, found outside a bank in Oregon, which explodes killing a police officer signals a seismic shift in individuals’ attitudes. What I am saying is that current economic conditions, coupled with increasing government interference and meddling in not only economic markets but individual lives, is quite possibly leading to a period of violent actions against the government, and, more noteworthy, businesses and individuals which are feeding at the government’s tit at the expense of productive individuals who have no truck with the state and desire none.
