    How did Iceland slip so silently into such utter collapse? Iceland’s economy, now toast, has led to a government on the brink of collapse. The UK’s Independent reports:
    Iceland’s troubles reveal(ed) themselves during last week’s tumultuous events. Peaceful demonstrations began in Reykjavik’s main square, outside the Althing (parliament) building, had begun in October immediately after the crash. Last week they erupted in the worst riots since it became a founding member of Nato in 1949. Rocks were hurled at police and the Althing. Its windows were smashed and the building set alight. Over 130 protesters received treatment after police used tear gas to disperse the crowd, and one police officer was seriously injured.
    On Friday morning, human rights campaigner and protest organiser Hordur Torfason told a chilling anecdote to illustrate the desperation many Icelanders are feeling. He had received a phone call from a man who said that four generations of his family had lost everything. “He wanted me to help them build a gallows in front of the parliament building,” says Torfason. “I asked him if this was to have some symbolic significance. ‘No,’ came the answer. ‘A member of my family wants to hang himself in public.'”
    “I said I would help them but not in this way,” says Torfason. “But he killed himself two days ago.”
    Red Cross employees and volunteers are working overtime to prepare for depression and desperation. The relief agency has expanded and is setting up support groups and activities for the unemployed. “One of the effects of long-term unemployment is depression,” says the agency’s Thor Gislason.
    More people are attending church, he says, not just for spiritual succour, but because food is sometimes provided for a nominal charge. Soup kitchens, emblematic of Eastern bloc poverty, might be going too far. “We believe people will be too ashamed to stand in line publicly for food,” says Gislason, “so we will organise activities and volunteer work where food is involved instead.”
    The article says that last week’s demonstration was the biggest public protest in Iceland’s history. Protestors want Prime Minister Geir Haarde to resign, the parliament dissolved, the constitution replaced with a new one, and investigations of politicians from the current administration. In other words, they are demanding a revolution.
    Fortunately, nobody is starving or freezing on the street. But Iceland is clearly on the brink of either a major change or some kind of collapse. Its situation should serve as a warning to other countries sunk by the financial crisis. No place is immune to this kind of upheaval.

    Yeah and the world is moving to your country in droves! Hahahaha idiot!

    Bullying is a major problem in this country for many reasons. One, many parents in this country are more worried about keeping their children happen than teaching them the morals and standards that shape a person correctly. Second, many people out there suffer from self esteem issues, which aren't brought to the surface enough. I was bullied throughout my life and have seen bullies of all types. One major flaw in our system is that bullies aren't taken care of properly. The victims get all the care and pity. The bullies are severely disciplined (which is good) but typically, that's as far as it goes. In many cases, the bully, psychologically, is far more scarred and damaged than their victims at the start. The first bully I encountered, who is now my closest friend, was abused badly. Took me a long time to figure that out. Bullying needs to be taken care of from root to leaf.

    That can be said of any Country on the Planet.

    The subjugation of Women in the middle East.

    The caste system of India.

    The peerage of Western Europe.

    All are nothing more than institutionalized bullying.

    It is the dark, primitive side of Human Nature that We have yet to get a handle on.

    But keep in mind...if someone doesn't agree with you and YOU feel that it is because Yer not pretty, rich or popular enough, YOU ARE NOT being bullied by anyone other than YOURSELF.

    There is much bullying of gay men because most straight guys think gay men are punks and bitches who won't fight back if attacked. I had many opponents/enemies make that mistake with me. Personally I wish more gay men would be "super" out and proud and know how to kick ass. icon_smile.gif

    agreed.

    i think the reason people are holding america to such a high standard such as the op and this thread is because america and especially americans in general like to frown down on other places in the world for being "uncivilized" and take pride for how "civil" and "advanced" it is yet for a "civilized" country, it has the same problems that it frowns down on "uncivilized" countries for having.

    it's like how america is ready to send aid to countries in africa where there's poor people but turn around treating poor people in this country like absolute shit. there's plenty of kids that are homeless walking in america without shoes on their feet and plenty of folks will rather donate to a kid outside the country than to be nice enough to go to the store to buy those kids a pair of shoes.



    For the most part, even poor people in the United States have a far higher standard of living than those in a place such as the Sudan.

    I have never seen a shoeless child walking the streets. But I suppose My experiences are limited.

    Perhaps You see the absurd irony in Your railing for the forgotten proletariat...on a 15 hundred dollar laptop.

    What We also have in the United Staes is institutionalized freedom. We are legally allowed to pursue any opportunity We want. And for such a young country, there is no place on Earth with more opportunity.

    It doesn't always work smoothly or easily or conveniently but for the last couple centuries Many seem to have overcome obstacles even bigger than You or I could even imagine.

    You think it's rough out there in Maplewood New Jersey?

    Go hang out on the Ivory Coast for a few months and get back to Me...

    Bullying has been around for a long time. It was virtually an institution in British schools in the Victorian era. An 1857 novel by Thomas Hughes about attending Rugby, "Tom Brown's School Days", highlights the hellish environment boys could experience. The bully there is named Flashman, a name that persists to this day in Britain as a bully euphemism.

    Maybe not the homeless, but the lowest strata of American society actually enjoys a higher standard of living than many within the highest strata of many OECD countries. And on many measurements, like home ownership, access to square feet even when renting, the kind of services and goods people get in this country, what we have and have access to (especially medical care), and expect to have access to, or rather our gluttony so to speak, is probably volumes higher than all of the Eurozone combined. Canada got lucky with their current standard of living because of their relationship to us (while Mexico was adversely affected by their relationship to us), our capacity to "living it large" can be owed to our collective superiority in almost every measure possible, but we are nonetheless over leveraged.

    i have to disagree with that. you do not need to go out the country to find third world poverty in the states and there are people that are living very well off in developing countries. there's plenty of families in the u.s of a that are go to bed hungry because they have no money to buy anything to eat, nothing but baking soda in the fridge, are sleeping on the floor or where everyone is sleeping on one mattress in a one room apartment. there's plenty of people with money in sudan that are living just like or even better than rich folks are in the states.

    and i would also say that the idea of the "american dream" being obtainable is NOT exactly true where someone can get it or there's "institutionalized freedom". yes, it's possible to be successful BUT the reality is that the chances for success depends on other factors.. a poor kid or person in america is already at a great disadvantage because america moves off of money... it affects the way of life. affects how you eat, affects the type of health care you get, and etc. you factor in "gender", "race", "education", "family situations" and other things, then the chances of success and failure vary. however, i do agree that america does have more opportunities where someone can make it or be able to build a life for themselves compared to other countries that are not well off.



    Yes, the average U.S. citizen as taxpayer and consumer and debtor essentially subsidizes the welfare and well being for hundreds of countries and it's unfortunate we can't take care of our own at times.
