FLASHBACK: Riots Across United States of America During the Great Depression (Video)

I have never seen any of this above video footage of riots throughout the Midwest and Northeast States in United States of America during the 1930s. In fact, it looks similar to the some of the protests that are occurring in the Occupy Movement that has spread around the world in recent weeks. The protesters in the 1930s video appear to be protesting and destroying the means of production (manufacturing) whereas the Occupy movement appear to be protesting the means of financing (banking). The 1930s videos also appear to be more violent.

I highly recommend taking a few minutes and watching a bit of American history.

Cybercommand Chief Gen. Keith Alexander Opposes Giving U.N. Power to Regulate Internet

***PLEASE NOTE - The title of this blog article actually refers to the below quoted text from The Washington Times. The Times quotes the General Keith Alexander's statement after a cybersecurity conference that was likely the GEOINT 2011 Symposium sponsored by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation. I have linked the video of the General's keynote speech from the Symposium where he discusses the nation's need for enhanced cybersecurity (including the use of cloud computing).

The commander of the U.S. Cyber Command said Thursday that he does not favor giving the United Nations the power to regulate the Internet.
