Gerald Celente, Trends Research Institute:

Following the Collapse [of 2009]; then, following the Greatest Depression, we’re going to see Revolution.

And all you have to do is look what’s going on over there in Greece. This isn’t about a 15-year-old kid getting shot. This is about pent up anger, particularly among the young people who have a futureless future. And they’re looking at the corruption in the government, the scandals, and they’ve had it.

There’s a saying that we have—I’m originally a Bronx boy: ‘When people lose everything, and have nothing to lose, they lose it.’

And the people in this country think that social unrest only happens in other countries. It’s going to happen here when you have the homeless, the helpless and the hungry out on the streets. What happened in Chicago, with the workers refusing to leave the factory, you’re going to start seeing more and more of it.

We’re going to see a revolution in this country, and these are the beginning phases.”

As a result of the revolution, Celente considers secession movements to be a very real possibility: America splitting up into pieces.
