Random Thoughts on Ferguson, Missouri

As riots go, even in this country, the one in Ferguson, Missouri is a pretty small deal.

But, it does demonstrate that this supposed nation of opportunity, at least equal opportunity, is still more myth than reality.

Riots generally result from frustration and at least perceived injustice and inequality whether it be Lexington and Concord in 1775, Paris in 1789, western Europe in 1848, Russia in 1917 or Ferguson today.
