(...) The whole concept of The Movement is that our economy and our political system is dominated by greed and corruption. It is about acknowledging that detrimental fact and about wanting it to stop, for the inhumane domination and free reign of greed and corruption to no longer be tolerated. It is about realizing that we are all gears caught up in the functioning of this (oppressive) Machine and that without our obedience and cooperation The (oppressive) Machine could no longer function. Violence will never stop this Machine from running, in fact it would only cause The Machine to tighten its grip and to become even more inhumane. A few thousand people protesting in the streets and a few thousand people boycotting a few of the most monstrous banks and corporations will also not stop The Machine from running. It will take much more than that. Dividing ourselves and voting against each other as republicans and democrats for corporate-owned-puppet-politicians will not stop The Machine from running either, because that in itself is a huge part of how The Machine functions and maintains its power over us. Divided we remain conquered. Compliant and obedient we keep The (oppressive) Machine up and running full-speed.

The only way to Stop This Inhumane Machine from ruling over our lives is through Unity, through Solidarity, through Organized Cooperation With Each Other and through Organized Non-cooperation and Non-compliance with The Machine. WE DO THAT TOGETHER and The (oppressive) Machine falls apart because (our compliance) is the only thing that has ever kept it running to begin with. WE THE PEOPLE, who show up to work every day for greedy employers who refuse to pay us a decent living wage. WE THE PEOPLE, who show up every election to vote for corrupt politicians who consistently fail to represent us or to even acknowledge us as human-beings-who-deserve-to-live, who deserve the opportunity and the means to provide for ourselves without being exploited, who deserve to be treated with dignity, fairness and respect. If only We could understand how easy it could be to win ALL of that. Stop Cooperating with The (oppressive) Machine and The (oppressive) Machine falls apart. Refuse to be the gears of The Machine that keep it running the way it does and Organize and Take Over The Controls.

United In Solidarity We Stand Together Liberated and Free...

Divided against each other and compliant to our own oppression we remain conquered slaves ...... to The Machine ...

...THIS IS THE VOICE OF THE RESISTANCE...

Forum Post: Deprogramming America http://occupywallst.org/forum/deprogramming-america/

Does anyone here have any experience in deprogramming used by experts on religious cults like the moonies or scientologists, or has been a member of a cult? After talking to dozens of people about their views on politics, economics, and patriotism, I can't help but come to the conclusion that Americans as a group are as brainwashed as any religious cult member. It's the only thing that makes any sense as to why after Occupy's message has been widely proclaimed, the corruption and the theft, people still fail to grasp it or take any action in significant numbers.

(Comment by KevinPotts:)

It begins in the public school system, where we are told over and over to sit down and shut up all day. And we are even threatened with violence if we do not obey. We are indoctrinated from a very early age to become submissive and obedient and to never question authority. We are discouraged from critical thinking and encouraged to believe everything we are told. We are taught a censored, rich-white-man's capitalist point of view of History and forced to "Pledge Allegiance" to the flag every day. After 12 years of being treated like prisoners, many of us are so totally disgusted with school by then that we never go on to college.

Combine that with spending most of our free time being dumbed down by television and there you have it...an entire anti-intellectual, subserviant and brainwashed culture.

'Wealth Distribution In America'

The Saddest Atrocity Of This "Great Nation" Is Not That We Spend Billions Overseas Or Even The Billions Spent On Our Oversized, Overused Military, Though Not To Dismiss Either Lightly, But The Shameless Exploitation Of The Backbone Of This Country The American Worker And The Sadly Disproportionate, Unequal Distribution Of That American Worker's Hard Earned Dollar.

If the Machine falls apart .. what than ?

Do we really want to destroy the only life we have .. without even a glimpse of a future plan !

"The Machine" is just a metaphore that represents an inhumane, corrupt system. "The Machine falling apart" is just another way of saying that rich people would no longer be allowed to rule the world. Rich people exploiting us and ruling over our lives is not "the only life we have" by any means LOL The future plan is fairness and decency and social justice, like for example, replacing Capitialism with a Democratic economy and replacing our corrupt fake-democracy with a Real Democracy.

The language of corruption.

I've long been a stickler for real English language. It's been bent and refashioned to suit the agenda of these criminal types.

Here's hoping that we can return to actual true meanings rather than what these crooks have hijacked for their own ends.
