Murder rates are soaring, mass shootings are becoming commonplace, and "extreme degeneracy," as Michael Snyder from The Economic Collapse Blog puts it, is rampant and widespread.
Some of these events are staged false flags, of course, but some of them are also real. There is a clear and obvious social decline taking place that has almost become "normal" due to its frequency and severity.
"To a certain extent, a lot of these things seem “normal” to many of us at this point," Snyder writes.
"But the truth is that what we are experiencing is not even close to 'normal.' We are literally watching our entire society slowly but surely go down the tubes, and it is heartbreaking to watch."
Just last Saturday, a group of looters stormed a northern California Nordstrom store and just ransacked it. Roughly 80 individuals, all masked to protect against "covid," entered the store with crowbars and began grabbing anything and everything they could get their hands on.
According to a police report from the Walnut Creek Police Department (WCPD), the mob was in and out of the store in a matter of minutes. It was well-coordinated and there was no stopping it, in other words.
"This sort of 'organized crime' is becoming increasingly common, but the size and scale of this particular attack was particularly alarming," Snyder says.
"This happened in one of the most prosperous areas of northern California, and one eyewitness described it as 'like a scene out of a movie.'"
Brett Barrette, one of the managers at a nearby P.F. Chang's restaurant who witnessed the incident, says the whole thing was "insane" and unexpected. And perhaps the worst part about it is that it was not isolated.
A nearby Louis Vuitton store in San Francisco was also looted over the weekend. And just like the Nordstrom incident, most of the looters got away, though a few were nabbed.
Following the Kyle Rittenhouse not-guilty verdict, upwards of 150 rioters converged on Portland and began starting fires and smashing property. At one point, roughly a dozen police officers were forced into a garage by "an extremely unruly mob."
Footage of that incident showed angry protesters aggressively accosting police officers who were donned in full riot gear. As they were backed into the garage, someone set the door to shut in front of them, locking them inside.
"Way too often, the bad guys are starting to get the upper hand in situations like this," Snyder further writes. "And I think that does not bode well for the troubled times ahead."
Snyder has been warning for a while now that this type of thing would increase. Chalk it all up to the "new normal," we suppose.
Meanwhile, violent protests are breaking out in Europe and other parts of the world as well due to the lockdowns and other plandemic restrictions being forced on the masses for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19).
Austria, Croatia, Italy, Belgium, Northern Ireland, the French territory of Guadeloupe and the Netherlands are among the countries where civil unrest is reaching a boiling point, though for other reasons.
"Part of living in a civilized society is being able to trust the government to do the right thing most of the time," Snyder says.
"But now we have gotten to a point where large numbers of people in industrialized nations all over the globe do not trust their own governments."
