Celebration 50 Years Since the Global Uprisings of ’68

Older generations never tire of reminding youth that the years they spend on college or university campus are formative moments in their lives, times that more often than not play an important role in shaping the trajectory of their future careers and helping to determine the types of adults that they will soon become. These are, after all, years where new life-long friendships are made, politics are formed, and ideas about one’s role in the world start to take hold. What these old-timers often don’t tell you is that if you play your cards right, they can also be the years when you participate in your first riot, flip over your first cop car, occupy your first faculty building, or topple your first government.

On this, the 50th anniversary of the global uprisings of 1968, subMedia pays homage to the insurgent youth who helped kick things off a half-century ago by taking a look at some contemporary student-led movements that are still tearing things up around the world. In this month’s episode of Trouble, the first of a two-part series on radical student movements, sub.Media talks to a number of current and former student organizers from so-called Puerto Rico, Quebec and Chile as they share their experiences from the high-points of past struggles and provide hard-fought lessons that can help prepare a new generation for the battles to come.

In an homage to the student-led uprisings of ’68, we are releasing a two-part series of our monthly documentary series, Trouble, highlighting student movements from around the globe. The first part of the series, Learning to Resist, covers movements from so-called Puerto Rico, Montreal and Chile, and is available in full on our website:….

    “…from so-called Puerto Rico, Quebec and Chile…”. I’m a tad confused: in 1968 were these areas known by other names? Perhaps a translation problem.

    American “students” today are too self involved and narcissistic to ever do anything constructive. Or to do anything but tweet their ‘feelings’ from their ‘safe space’.

    I was an officer in the Pa National Guard in 68. I know what was happening. All kinds of insurrection. I will be interested to see how these videos portray those years.

    Just saw this: “The West is educating and grooming generations of useless, bedwetting, irresponsible intellectually vapid children (because, despite their age, that’s what they are). And lacking from this tsunami of the cotton-wool-clad crowd is ANY responsibility. Try foist it on them and they screech “triggered” and retreat to a “safe space”. … I’ll tell you what happens next. We’ve the most fertile grounds you could imagine for tyranny because you know what? There ain’t gonna be nobody strong enough to stop it happening.”

    Guess my view of America and its youth is not too far off. lol

    You are the one who was born into wealth of your parents generation where the eocnony grew around 7 percent! in 1970 the economy grew around 4.5 percent and the min wag stared out at 11 dollars an hour (Inflation Adjusted). Now the economy grows at 2 percent and min wag starts out at 7.50…You boomers were the most spoiled rotten generation ever. Millennials are much more like their grand parents generation! Everything is fake with you! You are an uneducated moron! Stupid ignorant construction worker! To dumb to use his mind!

    If there is one generation that urgently needs to be burried, than it is the 1968 trash. They destroyed the family with their “free sex” and easy divorce, they accepted the holocaust campaign guilt trip, leading to opening the borders for third world immigration that will kill the white world.

    Here is the leader of the 1968 uprising in Paris, the repulsive kosher Daniel Cohn-Bendit, advocating legalisation of pedofilia::

    In America the average 1968 f* looks like this:

    “Meathead” and “All in the family”, yet another kosher creation.

    1968 = death of the west.
    1968 is the western variant of communism.

    Death to 1968!

    Warning: Oil supplies are running out fast

    Catastrophic shortfalls threaten economic recovery, says world’s top energy economist

    The world is heading for a catastrophic energy crunch that could cripple a global economic recovery because most of the major oil fields in the world have passed their peak production, a leading energy economist has warned.

    In an interview with The Independent, Dr Birol said that the public and many governments appeared to be oblivious to the fact that the oil on which modern civilisation depends is running out far faster than previously predicted and that global production is likely to peak in about 10 years – at least a decade earlier than most governments had estimated.

    ““…from so-called Puerto Rico, Quebec and Chile…”. I’m a tad confused: in 1968 were these areas known by other names? Perhaps a translation problem”

    Not at all, it is purely ideological. Geografical names could create the “illusion” of local identity. Can’t have that, not egalitarian enough. The concept of a country and borders is “repressive”.

    The greatest scumbag on this forum apneaman=millimind=mobster represents the communist in its purest form: a sadistic monster and rapist, ready to put you in his gulag or turn you into his personal “fucktoy” if you oppose his borderless One World.

    And then there is that similar POS empire Dave, who opines that every countries needs to be bombed into oblivion if they resist becoming a member of the empire. And everybody who defends his country against third world take-over is branded a (((Hollywood-Natzi))).

    It is clear for Eurasia who the enemy is that needs to be taken apart after Trump. It’s going to be a walkover as there is no greater coward than snow-flake 1968 trash.

    AS I have been saying…

    “The Dumbing Down of America – By Design”

    “This presentation focuses on the myriad ways in which the powers-that-be in the United States have been systematically dumbing down Americans as a society for a very long time – all by meticulously calculated design. Originally the term dumbing down was used as a slang expression in 1933 by film screenwriters to mean “revising [the script] so as to appeal to those of lower education or intelligence.”

    The most obvious example of how Americans have been dumbed down is through this nation’s failed public education system. At one time not that long ago America reigned supreme as a leading model for the rest of the world providing the best quality free public K-12 education system on the planet. But over the last many decades while much of the rest of the world has been passing us by, it seems an insidious federal agenda has been implemented to condition and brainwash a population of mindless, robotic citizenry that simply does what it’s told, and of course the brainwashing commences early in America’s schools.”

    The Great Leveling is gaining speed.

  15. I AM THE MOB on Tue, 30th Jan 2018 12:39 am 


    Quit ripping on our educational system because you were to dumb for college and dropped out! You are an anti intellectual! Get an education and stop being critical of something you know nothing about!

    “If there is one generation that urgently needs to be burried, than it is the 1968 trash.”

    The worst generations in the history of the planet spanned 500 years in Europe. The planets fate was sealed by all the evil isms of man and his exploitation and destruction of the planet. Europe lock us into this human trap on every level. Soon we will pay the price for this hubris.

    “Cloggie, the 60’s was the beginning of the end for the Us.”

    The late 60’s was when we still had a chance and silly billy’s generation could have altered our train wreck. Look what that generation is doing now. Look at silly billy and his shucking of responsibility for his contribution to that madness.

  18. Theedrich on Tue, 30th Jan 2018 3:49 am 

    Yup, we need more Leftist epileptic fits.  The more chaos the better.  That is the only way we can get a new Napoleon, a new Stalin or, most intriguing of all, a new Austrian.

    Then we can think about giving the Negroids their reparations and land grants — in Liberia.  And we can re-settle all those nice Mohammedans back in their sandlands.  And the cheapo laborers from Spickland back to enrich their wonderful ancestral homelands.

    But all that will happen only after we correct the Yid-Cretian mentality of Whitey himself.  After all, in this country he has never known the true pressures of history.  But the Collapse, with all of its high-techiness, will persuade him of its reality.

  19. Davy on Tue, 30th Jan 2018 4:09 am 

    “In an interview with The Independent, Dr Birol said that the public and many governments appeared to be oblivious to the fact that the oil on which modern civilisation depends is running out far faster than previously predicted and that global production is likely to peak in about 10 years – at least a decade earlier than most governments had estimated.”

    That is a deceptive and simple look at a complex issue. Quality oil has peaked. Unconventionals may never peak because modern man may not last that long. If he does then he will have significantly changed his energy mix. There are other liquids and gas that are still plentiful. Coal might be made in to methanol. The issues is more about choices and we are in a time of choices.

    The picture is actually more about the health of the economy. Can we hold the economy together in the short term to maintain the confidence and complexity of a highly productive global economy? There is a great deal of complexity in that confidence because it involves deception and real disclosures. It involves corruption and wealth transfer too. The highly productive global economy is involved with mal investment. There are systematic issues to peak oil that are most vulnerable in the economic sphere. We will quickly hit peak oil in a dramatic economic decline.

    A dramatic economic decline will likely mean permanent peak oil. We also have the possibility if the economy holds and we get some kind of effective demand management strategies the possibility of peak oil demand with renewables. This could happen nearly the same time of supply side peak oil. A significant reduction in oil use extending out the worst of what we thought peak oil would do is possible. I do not believe in a 100% renewable world but I do feel we can significantly cover primary energy needs with renewables, efficiency, and demand management in the short term of a few decades. This involves behavioral changes. Will it happen, who knows because behavior is the key and human nature is difficult to predict? Behavior is the key to confidence and war. Wars both hot and cold will end any hope. Do the powers to be already doubt hope and decided on war? We must maintain cooperative competition which is all about behavior. If our collective behavior turns nasty this will ensure permanent peak oil soon.

    Have the central banks garnered a control of the global economy by managing rates and liquidity? Is this what the economy really needed? Were free markets too wild for modern life and its fragility? I hope so because there is no going back anymore. We shot our wad with that gamble. What I tend to see is a blind pursuit of growth for affluence instead of wise investing in a longer term future which involves saying no and excepting less in collective sacrifice. This wise approach means accepting hardship and for all in a cooperative effort. We may have too many people and cultures for that.

    We seem to have settled into a Ponzi economic arrangement of managing bubbles and spending the future now. The trickle down mentality is tearing the social fabric in the typical way civilization fail from bottom up from top down decadence. This spending of the future now in a civilizational Ponzi is not what you think. What it is about is malinvestment for current benefits and putting off tough decisions. This damages civilization and its economy systematically. We are setting ourselves up for lower productivity with higher expectations and populations. Planetary decline across a spectrum from the consequences of modern civilization is another cost that will need to be covered but is being put off.

    So peak oil is deeply embedded in the systematic nature of civilization more than the simple extrapolation of the past into the future. We are now in a critical time in history or an inflection. This involves all of the above and wise choices. I am not optimistic but I am more optimistic than I once was for a decade or two, peak oil or not. After that I feel it is Katy bar the door.

    “…in this country he has never known the true pressures of history. But the Collapse, with all of its high-techiness, will persuade him of its reality.”

    Yep! Reality is going to come home in a “YUGE” way. There is nothing stopping it now. Only time. It is already beginning with the chaos and disintegration of all morals and sanity at the top. With country after country turning away and siding with it’s foes. Freedoms about gone. Lawlessness spreading from the top down. Drugs and suicides vying for the highest numbers. All the previously buried ‘dirt’ surfacing big time. And on and on.

    All good things must come to and end, and it will NOT ba a Disney ending. More like a Dante’s Inferno one, similar to the hell the US has been spreading around the world for the last 70 plus years, all concentrated into a few years of chaos until there is no USofA. Or so it appears to me.

    For my family’s sake, I hope not, but…? We shall see. There is nothing I can do to make it easier for them, if it happens, except to keep the door open here.

    “The American empire was built, once it had acquired enough geopolitical, financial and military power, on invading countries and turning them into shithouses. … America wasn’t the first country to do it, but it’s certainly been no. 1 in applying the ‘tactic’ over the past 100 years and change. … The entire country was built on racism, and it’s still to his day almost exclusively run by white males. Much of the racism may be hidden by now, but it’s still very much there. … Trump gets to present great economic numbers tomorrow. The numbers are mostly fake,… America needs a dialogue. But all it has left is loud, echoing, deafening, monologues. And plenty shithouse counties and cities and neighborhoods within its own borders as well.”

    “Trump is not what’s wrong with America. Rather, what is wrong with America is what has given it Trump. Someone asked God for a sign and He said: here you are.” And well deserved, I might add.

    “Information Blackout Follows Putin-Netanyahu Meeting”

    “What was today’s most important diplomatic meeting, was also the least publicly discussed. And judging by the information blackout in its aftermath, that’s just what the organizers intended. Very few details have emerged from the lengthy Moscow talks between Vladimir Putin and Benjamin Netanyahu, the duo’s seventh face to face meeting in two years, in which the two leaders who are currently reshaping the middle east in the power vacuum left by the US, were expected to discuss military cooperation on Syria and Iran’s influence in the region. The information fog after the meeting was so dense there wasn’t even a brief blurb on either Bloomberg or Reuters what the two spoke about in private; alternatively – and may this be a lesson for Trump – this is the intended outcome when there are no leaks. The meeting came less than a week after Netanyahu met US President Donald Trump in Davos, and he said that he spoke with the Russian leader about the same issues concerning Syria and Iran that he spoke about with Trump. Both men, he said, “understand” Israel’s positions.”

    This is for the board neo-Nazi, LMFAO. This will surely give his holocaust denial indigestion.
    “Information Blackout Follows Putin-Netanyahu Meeting”

    “Russia’s president and the Israeli prime minister met at the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center in Moscow, where the two leaders took part in the opening of an exhibit to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day call called “Sobibor: Victorious over Death,” which is dedicated to the 1943 uprising in the Nazi extermination camp. The exhibit tells the story of Alexander Pechersky, a Red Army officer who led a successful breakout from the camp. Putin said that memory of the Holocaust is “a warning against any attempt to jump on the idea of global domination, to announce, build or assert one’s grandeur based on racism, ethnic or any other supremacy. Russia categorically rejects any such attempt.”

    Market turbulence?

    “Market Euphoria May Turn to Despair If 10-Year Yield Jumps to 3%”

    “It’s getting harder and harder to quarantine the selloff in Treasuries from equities and corporate bonds. The benchmark 10-year U.S. yield cracked 2.7 percent on Monday, rising to a point many forecasters weren’t expecting until the final months of 2018. For over a year, range-bound Treasuries helped keep financial markets in a Goldilocks state, with interest rates slowly rising due to favorable forces like stronger global growth and the Federal Reserve spearheading a gradual move away from crisis-era monetary policy. Yet the start of 2018 caught many investors off guard, with the 10-year yield on pace for its steepest monthly increase since November 2016. Suddenly, they’re confronted with thinking about what yield level could end the good times seen since the presidential election. For many, 3 percent is the breaking point at which corporate financing costs would get too expensive, the equity market would lose its luster and growth momentum would fade.”

    Budget Buster: As with companies, though, much higher interest rates could saddle state and local government budgets with increased borrowing costs, preventing some from taking steps to shore up their underfunded pension plans. A 3 percent yield on the 10-year Treasury would “definitely have an influence and could create headwinds for the municipal market,” said Eric Friedland, director of municipal research at Lord Abbett & Co. And in the market for agency mortgage-backed securities, rising interest rates would slow down prepayments, therefore increase how long the obligations remain outstanding. That, in turn, could spark selling from investors who don’t want that added duration risk.

    Donald Trump has declared the media the enemy, for good reason. But the are not dead, not dead enough yet. Today another article in the NYT, attacking useless (white) Americans 1.0:

    The author is a David Brooke, his wiki page declares that “Brooks is Jewish but he rarely attends synagogue”. Now that’s a relief! Brooks is very much disturbed by the fact that the NY hinterland (may I still use this German word?) is still far too white (95%) and that this needs to change. I can sympathize with that. Similarly I think that the NYT is “too Jewish”, not diverse enough. I think that the Grey Old Lady could use a lot of hip-hop influx. Israel same story:

    Mysteriously one never hears of the David Brooks of this world protesting against Israel throwing out Africans. Strange that.

  36. Antius on Tue, 30th Jan 2018 1:15 pm 

    Cloggie, these people own and control the media and therefore control the information that is disseminated. In most western countries, non-mainstream sources are either arrested under ‘hate laws’ or in the case of the US, labelled as fake news and effectively blocked by the likes of Google. AI censorship is fast approaching.

    Regrettably, the forces of darkness appear to be winning. What I find most appalling is the complete apathy on the part of most of the public in European countries. People don’t seem to care or want to know. They are happy to live in a 1984 surveillance police state, so long as they have enough cash for cigarettes and booze. That sickens me most of all I think. A slave who fights slavery is heroic. A slave that wilfully cooperates and doesn’t care is contemptible.

    Revival of the Austrian-Hungarian Dual Monarchy, sort of:

    Hungary was already strictly against illegal aliens. Now Austria, the country of Mozart, Strauss and Hitler, has joined ranks and has become an Eastern European country. More dominoes to follow. Populist Czech president Miloš Zeman has been reelected as well, more bad news for Washington and Brussels.

    The trouble for the stinking commie known as Angela M., Hungary and Austria are blocking entrance for Islamic invaders to Germoney. And so do the Balkan states. So it has become difficult for the c*nt to continue to destroy her own country on behalf of George Soros.

    But it won’t be long until her downfall. She has great trouble forming a new government. The socialist SPD had preferred to go into the opposition, but after the only other possible coalition had failed, the so-called GroKo (grosse Koalition, great coalition) was the only possibility left. The SPD fears it will suffer the same fate as socialists everywhere in Europe: annihilated in countries like Holland and France. Even the media admit that the populists will replace the socialists. The AfD, as the third party (out of nowhere) will be the opposition leader if the GroKo happens after all. The AfD will be in the news day.

    The western European equivalent of 1989 is not very far off. A couple of years until a major western European country “falls” to the populists.
