The "Occupy Wallstreet" Movement
I'm of the belief that this movement is not going to produce positive change. Corruption exists within government/business because it is a means toward an end. Corruption-->power. Simple as that. The people demand, not a redistribution of funds fundamentally, but a redistribution of power.

For the power and rights we have today, are merely illusion. We know not truth. We know not freedom. We are controlled by politicians who are contolled by those who have sponsored them. We lose fractions of dollars as they, as a team, see fit. We are told what they want us to be told.

We are tracked and monitored for the sole purpose of being tamed and compliant. They want to know what kind of guns YOU have in your home, so they can pinpoint just how dangerous we are as a civlians in a state of unrest. They want to control the amount of pollution YOU create so they can allow corporations to increase output of their own, for if you operate under the fact that they monitor yours, you operate under the illusion that they montior their own. They want to increase productivity at the expense of leadership/sharing. They want to keep you distracted with status. They want. They want.

You can't put a dollar amount on what this movement is about. And you can't reason with a people who are fundamentally against what you, as a people, are after. Community is dead. Transformational, collaborative leadership and caring are gone. The 99% weep for a way of life they've never known, but feel in their awakened center a longing for. A degeneration of values...

Anyhow, discuss....

We are the 99% but the occupy movement is blocking small businesses from serving their customers and vandalizing. At least is Oakland they are. Garage owners and sandwich shops are not part of the 1% so who really is behind this "movement"?

Quite true, MB. I saw a few vids of a few small business owners being interviewed. They were nervous, angry, and disheartened. Because they know that, with them being on the first floor under the target, they will incur the wrath of the crowds. They're shut down, some of them, too.

This whole movement, in my opinion, will only serve to tighten the clenched fist further. This movement gathers the weak in centralized locations. Will our government listen to their demands? What incentive do they have? Caring? Nah.
