The movement is getting stronger.

[-] 1 points by aahpat (1407) 2 years ago

But it needs to stay focused on jobs and economic justice.

The #Occupy movement has been very successful at shifting the lexicon of the national debate from the phony national debt distraction to the real issues of jobs and economic justice. Diluting that focus with too many subsidiary interests that are actually a subset of jobs and economic justice simply confuses people while allowing the propagandists and Washington minions for Wall Street to claim that #Occupy is a pointless confused rabble.

Force Change, Boycott Capitalism

We know what the problem is, let us fix it and move forward together.

When you look at a republican or democrat, congress or FDA official, Judges and Justice Department, you see criminals.

Our corruption dates back many years to when those, who in trying to preserve slavery, had to find new ways to preserve it and so created a scientific and advanced form of slavery.

Only two components were required -- the illusion of freedom & choice and the taking away of the freedom to live off the land.

How else would you get a person to submit themselves to mind numbing or degrading work unless you oppress them into it.

Our current system is rooted in corruption and every attempt in preserving it involves manipulating human thought and turning people against one another.

In America the population has been transformed into two major voting groups but they only have one choice.

They had been distracted up until now with television and American culture which prospered through the oppression of other nations.

Americans allowed themselves to be fooled into using their military and economic dominance to seize resources of other nations and create expanding markets for American profiteers.

Now that technology, competition and conscience have evolved Americans are realizing that our current system of government is damaging and unsustainable.

Our government officials have allowed private profits and personal benefits to influence decisions that affect the health and well-being of people all over the planet, not just in America... how much longer will we allow them to rule over us??

Occupy Washington and demand that government officials resign their posts.

We will setup new online elections with a verification system that will allow us to see our votes after we cast them, put our new officials in office and work toward rebuilding our country and our world.

Pass this message along to any and everyone, we already occupy the world, unite.

There is nothing wrong with capitalism as long as its regulated. I prefer a capitalistic/socialist hybrid myself. I believe the two can co-exist.

I just think pushing a purely anti-capitalistic campaign will hurt our movement in the long run more than it will help it when it comes to garnering public support. Especially when we have a lot of support from small business owners in our respective cities.

there's a lot of cleaning up to do, from the financial sector to the food and drug administration where big pharma writes our bills, energy, where energy companies write our bills, to weapons and manufacturing who fool us into war, drug enforcement which funnels money to weapons building and throws kids in privately owned jails for smoking a joint while letting the entire nation get hooked on pain killers, anti-depressants, pressure & cholesterol and most alarmingly children on behavior modification drugs. - "they" have wedged themselves between us and our freedom to live.

to go against them or the capitalist system they head would mean death.

this is a crime, the system for the exchange of goods and the system of government by and for the well-being of people should always be seperate.

i wonder if it's possible at this point to create a wide conversation about economic democracy that's constructive and not polarizing. if it wouldn't be more effective to focus on fixing our political democracy as a first step. there seems to be more potential unity there. i don't see a how real inclusive national dialogue about capitalism in this country can happen until people from across the spectrum have learned to listen to and trust one another more. if people first are willing to work together to fix and renew our political system, it might create conditions for education and discussion that could lead somewhere.

[-] 1 points by rimards (15) from New York, NY 2 years ago

It is quite true that the base, the logic of political ideology should align with the economic program. market is the human grammar that is built into our behavioral action. but there are people who form the most important part of any system. so, the system can produce more people with less envy, lust for power, .... that will be able to hold out the rest of the time remaining to the real life. it takes courage, sacrifice, patience and a lot of faith in the good.

Not only are you correct, it has already happened. I, for one, and finished with this mob of goofy anarchists. They will effect NO change whatsoever. They have devolved to a form of group narcissism. The movement is already being ignored by the vast majority of the population. It has failed through lack of consensus (it has become polarized by the radical left) and lack of leadership.

I read that the Belgium has no national government and their economy grew more than the U.S.. Here are the growth numbers followed by a link to the article:

"UK’s disappointing 0.2 per cent growth, the US’s anaemic 0.3 per cent and the glum eurozone average figure of 0.2 per cent. That number includes the surprising and alarming German 0.1 per cent, the desperately poor French 0 per cent and then, wait for it, the agreeably frisky Belgian 0.7 per cent."

These professional Egyptian activists work for Wall Street funded NGOs, they are not the grass roots egyptian protestors. NED and other NGOs are funded by Wall Street in order to control populist and democratic movements to make sure the outcome is in their favor. They like to make sure real populist leaders who will send Wall Street packing never come to power. Just look up NED or any of the other NGO's and you can see how they are all corporate funded fronts for Wall Street.

I am from Iran and have suffered a lot by the 1% inside and outside my country, which is why I think I have experienced and collected a fair knowledge of how 1% can occupy 99%'s achievements. That is why I had kept a watching eye on your activities in the occupy movement until you got connected to Iranian green movement. This clearly shows there are elements of CIA (representing 1%) active in there. I warn all real Americans (whom I respect for their hard work and their great achievements) who are suffering from atrocities of 99% to take care about what is being done in their name outside US and also inside OWS. We all in Iran pray for your success in the great struggle for justice and freedom from “Global Arrogance” (A term used by late Imam Khomeini).

Capitalism can be dismantled in this way:

Exercise just indipendent jobs. Produce and consume for yourself and your family. Refuse to work as a policeman, a bodyguard or a soldier. On these conditions the corps, without a protection, will be compelled to suffer the will of the 99%. The war in Libya has been just a scenario organized in the studios of Hollywood and that in Iran is impossible. It would be the beginning of a nuclear war.

Green movement in Iran is a CIA operation

I thought the OWS knew that

reason:

CIA had planned the Green movement before the Arab spring because they knew the Arab Spring would happen.

They plan to attack Iran using the formula for Lybia because Iran is not like Egypt or Tunesia.

But they want to use the Green movement as an excuse. Corporate media has exaggerated the scale of Green movement in Iran. They don't have that many followers. They are not the 99%. Maybe not even 1%!!

CIA and US military want to attack Iran on the idea to divide Iran into two or more zones. They want to turn southern Iran into a Sunni-Arab region and integrate it into the oil rich Arab region while turning Kurdestan and Azarbayejan into two other independent states and turn the Caspian and its resources into another.

What is left is a just a couple of big deserts and some useless land around it.

OWS has the responsibility to at least research before letting its force getting involved into a CIA ploy.

good luck.

CIA operations are dictated by private interests, ie the 1% - going back as far as civil war there have been "ops"

look up American Fruit and what they did to Guatemala, Domino and Cuba, Chevy and Vietnam, Haliburton and Iraq, and on and on and on.

Banana Republics and forceful oppression by way of media corruption, military force and economic impoverishment are common practice of CIA for the 1% that basically own and operate them.

Their great achievement is in openly sponsoring terrorism while calling their opposition the terrorists, with control of media, this is cake. Political undermining is easy for them, they have $$ and weapons to hand out, our money pays for both.

No, and Congress won't be asked either. Iran can only lose by attacking Israel. Israel needs to do the hard work of making peace with the Palestinians, which is why the moslem people are angry with Israel and us too not trying to choke the life out of them in Gaza. That's practical.
