    This seems counter intuitive, and short term.

    Probably but in all likelihood the Arab protests will burn out in about the same amount of time and oil will recede in price.

    not trying to be adversarial, but not since WWII has the fabric of society been so frazzled on a global scale.

    We are all gonna be a whole lot easier to pacify once we become grateful to merely be eating and being able to buy our ration of gasoline for only $12/gallon without waiting in long lines. IOW I believe that tptb are ripping the social fabric on purpose. They never liked the idea of sharing power with proles anyway. And the social fabric clashes with their class scheme.

    A difference of opinion, I tend to think that the powers that be are attempting to do what you say but are totally clueless about how the post-post-industrial world works.
