Capitalism: an economic system that allows 90%+ of the population to be born, live and die in debt; it is a broken and dysfunctional culture.

Micah White of Occupy Wall St. says the time has come:

"This is a sincere call for an American Revolution against the decadent, vile kleptocrats that are driving our nation into the ground. Compromised demagogues, sinister bankers, perverted analyticos... A cabal of compulsive liars has turned America, the pioneer of modern democracy, into a decaying state whose President is a puppet of a foreign regime. Meanwhile, the opulent 1% are sucking the 99% dry even as they push us, debt-ridden and screen-addicted, over the precipice. Only an insurrection against their cruel misrule can save us now...."  

Everyone should read the entire rant.

"... In the 18th century, America's forefathers were in a similar situation as we are today. They also sought justification to wage a rebellion against a despotic empire that claimed to be their rightful government. They knew that what they intended to do was illegal from the King's perspective, but they found solace in a higher law, a universal law that takes priority over temporal authority...."

The current regime is propped up by the Stock Market Ponzi.

Some might quibble that the fraud is not technically a Ponzi but no one in their right mind can say it's not a fraud!
