Manifestations of Angst of the People - Lebanon, Chile, Spain, Hong Kong, etal

In Chile, South America; in Lebanon, Middle East; in Spain, Europe; in Hong Kong, China; manifestations of the angst of the people are on full display. And while these locations might be in a present state of flare-up, demonstrated by the actions of the people to conditions they feel dread and anxiety about, they are not alone.

There is a broad feeling of global dread and anxiety percolating among the people and fueled by changing and broken alliances, economic woes and austere measures as well as declining social conditions amid an endangered environment.

While economic conditions are pushing people protests in Lebanon and in Chile, political conditions brought to wrought by the decision of the judiciary to incarcerate Catalan leaders, in Spain, are driving demonstrations. And for months now, the young people of Hong Kong have demonstrated fears of their futures via events across the former British colony.

The people of these regions and nations are not alone in their angst of governments. In the United States (US), in the United Kingdom (UK) and elsewhere, the anxiety of the peoples are evident, even if not as media-covered as other demonstrations. However, based upon today's current affairs, more hot demonstrations are possible in the coming months.

But anxieties and dreads are not inevitable since inherent among the power of the people, is the ability and mode to change dysfunctional governance to government of, by and for all the people.
