Thanks one and all for ows post comments..
You know as I recall this all started with Anonymous, not ows. Remember WikiLeaks, A99 & OpESR?
Anonymous Demands on the Federal Reserve
There is much that can be agreed upon by ows & the Tea Party.. Many of the concerns are the same. 99% MUST truly BE 99% everyone must end their political hatred of each other and unite as one force to end the hegemony imposed upon us all by the political and economic elites.
MOST of the concerns begin with the Federal Reserve Bank & the Fractional Reserve Banking system. Capitalism has morphed into a nasty machine whose only purpose is to separate Americans from their money.
Consumerism is to blame also & that reflects right back on the citizens of this country who willingly took on WAY to much debt just as our government has done.
Personally I see no way of fixing the entire mess short of tearing down every bit of it and starting over from scratch.
It's not a political republican vs democratic thing it's a societal thing..
It seems that many people may be "changing" but at this point it's difficult to understand what they really want.
I hear talk that students want all their student debt forgiven.. Why? If they did not wish to be in debt then they should not have borrowed (otherwise worthless paper) money. Ditto for foreclosures. Car loans. Debt in general.
Debt was / is the TRAP! It was / is the "master plan" of the politicians and bankers. And it worked perfectly. At least until they blew up the entire freaking world economy.
My hope is that people will learn from this just as they learned from the Great Depression of the 1930's. Debt is bad. Avoid it at all costs.
If everyone would simply do that ONE thing then all the politicians, banks and corrupt greedy corporations would simply disappear.
Without forever exponentially expanding credit it all collapses. Everyone goes bankrupt and it's over.. That's why the elites hate the idea so much. That's why the Federal Reserve Bank has been printing money like madmen for 3 years now. They have to debase our currency. They have to make our money worth less just as they have been doing since 1913.
The Federal Reserve Bank and their desire to create as many debt slaves as possible is ground zero.
The answer, IMHO, is to turn our back on the existing system. Don't use it, don't participate in it. Just ignore it.
