The rising tensions are appearing everywhere. In France workers at the Goodyear Plant have barricaded their bosses inside the plant using tires. In Asia, the Baht of Thailand has hit 4 year new lows and the Justice Minister has appeared on TV warning people who intended to participate in a strike being called “Operation Shutdown” for Bangkok that they will be violating government laws and can been prosecuted for “supporting rebellion”. Indeed, protests and rebellions are part of history. Even in Paris, there was the June Rebellion of 1832 after Napoleon against Monarchy. That failed, but it does not negate the persistent trend of civil unrest that is emerging once again. This is becoming a global contagion as it has before.
