The Disintegration of Well-Meant Collectives

Nobody asked but …

Not to oversimplify, but most movements start with a gathering of well-meaning individuals.

I look at the Tea Party, started innocently by Ron Paul and his followers, in the middle of the warmonger regime of George W. Bush (how are those wars going for us now?)  Well, the Tea Party was ruined by interlopers, wolves in tea party clothing.

Look at the police.  Spoiled by those who game the system, turn off the body cams, learn to push the limits of qualified immunity, exploit their union membership.

See the workarounds, see how the so-called champions of the little persons turn on them when the least bit of power is within reach.

Ther are several stories regarding the origin of the Tea Party Movement. One story that is widely believed is that it was innocently started after some remarks made by Rick Santelli on CNBC in 2009. I don’t think there is any way to conclusively prove who started the Tea Party.
