Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
For millennia.  Modern forms of government actually come from the Germanic "barbarians". But, of course you know that. :-)

The morons were plotting on Facebook! ROTFLMAO  Babes in the woods.
Reminds me of the Framers' march on Washington. I was working there at the time in Crystal City.
They were going to drive their tractors around the Capitol but they let the cops persuade them to march on foot with the cops promising they could go back to them afterward. Of course, the tractors were surrounded with old buses and other heavy junk to pen them in. The farmers were shocked that the cops lied! The anti-war groups would never have believed the cops, but at heart the farmers were "law and order" types, although there were some brutal battles on the street. I remember video of a tractor squashing a police car and cops swarming over the front, smashing the windsheild (and the farmer) with long nightsticks. Really waling on him.
Didn't help that the farmers were mostly southern whites and the DC cops are almost all black (I've never seen a white DC cop. IIRC the city was 80% black).
