Mass anger tends to be a response to actual not imaginary problems

I would say from what I have observed all my life that people were the most angry around just a few events worldwide here in the U.S. at least.

Here are the events that most upset everyone in order that I experienced them since the 1950s.

The first big event that upset everyone from the 1950s on likely was the Cuban Missile Crisis which caused "Almost a world wide nuclear war". Then likely the assassination of JFK (Kennedy) and because of his assassination (Bobby Kennedy) and then Martin Luther King. The next thing that upset every one was the Viet Nam War whether you were for it or against it you were upset about it because your friends or your children or your grandchildren were dying there for What?

The next thing that upset people a lot was Watergate. What Trump is experiencing is likely 10 times as bad as Watergate but it might all be shoved under the carpet and hidden from us all. We don't know yet.

When Nixon resigned the whole nation sighed a great sigh of relief as we thought we were going to lose our country to Dictator Nixon in a similar way to how we may have already lost our democracy to Dictator Trump.

The next thing that really upset the American People was 2001 9-11-01. This upset people in a completely new and undefined way sort of like the "Bombing of Pearl Harbor" by the Japanese on December 7th 1941. My thought is that if Pearl Harbor never happened likely Germany and Japan would rule the whole world today. So, this is something to think about too.

The next thing that really really upset the American People was the Great Recession and 50% to 75% of all wealth of the Middle Class and down going up in a puff of smoke caused by Adjustable Rate Mortgages. (by the way it's really insane they still exist today because this could now happen again under Trump) or worse.

The next thing that really really upset the American people (at least 57% or more) Trump stole the election with help from Putin.

So, the anger is real and could now turn violent through demonstrations or worse any moment not only here in the U.S. but worldwide.

Things are really really bad here in the U.S. in regard to this in a way I haven't seen since the Viet Nam War when police beat to death Anti-War demonstrators pretty commonly then on the streets or anywhere here in the U.S. from about 1965 until 1974 when the war finally ended and then later the draft ended too.
