I've noticed that when something goes awry in western Europe, they protest a lot more intensely than we do here in the states. The current G20 protests are just an example. There is no peaceful sour faced, scornful brushing-off of big bank executives in England. The crowds burn, break, spray paint, and really draw attention. I don't necessarily support it, but I will admit that it is effective, and sometimes necessary. If only our populace were as passionate, maybe issues could be addressed before they spiral into the disaster they have become. Unfortunately, our country is insanely apathetic.
