Patience seems to be running out for the current global economic system and runaway financial capitalism. The Arab spring turned into a winter and is now back to a hot summer, the 'indignados' of Spain and the 'aganaktismenoi' of Greece are currently resting, but attention has shifted to the 99% movement in the US, which is now going worldwide with events planned for the 10th of December. A very interesting video presenting the underlying income inequality statistics can be found here while income inequality worldwide is also increasing.
It is important is that the rotting system does not collapse on our heads - we must start exiting the crumbling structure now, by joining or forming alternatives - local exchange systems, collectives, urban farms, worker-managed businesses and so on, millions of tiny holes in the current system, until it peacefully vanishes as no longer relevant. Here in Greece, where we are becoming bankrupt in slow motion and with youth unemployment over 40%, alternative grassroots initiatives are constantly springing up and even international status quo media are taking note.
Those who planned so that the Internet and social media would be turned into one big social control mechanism will hopefully find one day that the joke was on them.
