in response to reader comment: "In modern techniques for managing marginalization—for keeping the peace in the face of persistent, and growing, inequality—the United States is a world leader."

The reason amercan cities do not burn, at least not all at once, is that the segregation is entirely different

In american cities the segregation is mainly economic. reflecting mainly level of education. Race has nothing to do with it. Successful latinos Blacks Jews, Chinese do not feel the need and do not exercise self- segregations

In Europe it is political. Islam is political, and it seeks to create multiple Dar -Al Islams which exclude the Dar Al Harb around them, then enlarge till they obliterate the Others to become the Khalifate. All zones of exclusion are motivated by the same ideology masquerading as a religion, and so they act to gether, burn together, and raise the level of over-all intimidation. . Not so in American cities where tensions are mainly local, despite rabble-rousers who try to leverage tensions for their own self-aggrandizment.
