Occupy America for Change

from OpEdNews

People must be saved, not banks. Too-big-to-fail ones must be shut, broken up or nationalized. Central bank authority must also shift to public hands. Sustained general city, state and national strikes must be used strategically.

America’s system is too broken and corrupted to fix. Tearing it down and starting over is vital, including a new Constitution put to a national referendum for an up or down vote.

Egalitarian America must replace it’s wealth and power system, benefitting few at the expense of most others. The biggest of all battles lie ahead. Dark forces lurk to co-opt and subvert them.

Staying the course is key. Obstacles exist to be overcome. So is knowing IF Stone’s advice that:

“The only kinds of fights worth fighting are those you are going to lose, because somebody has to fight them and lose and lose and lose until someday, somebody who believes as you do wins….”

Gandhi said it his way, saying:

“First they ignore you. Then they ridicule you. Then they fight you. Then you win.”

We’re in the ridiculing/fighting stage. It’ll continue years longer, maybe decades. Nothing’s guaranteed, of course, especially in the mother of all struggles.

If activists and those after them don’t quit, winning’s indeed possible, but not without great pain, sacrifice, and struggles often looking futile.

It’s how all great battles are won, none easily, quickly or without great cost.

No matter. Liberate your minds. Join the 99%. Stay the course, and find out! We’re all in this together!

The reality is that the 1% live in a different world, a different ethos, an Apartheid world, designed to exclude, exploit & oppress the rest of us.  To the 1%, the 99% are subhuman serfs, even slaves.  This is how they justify to themselves their greed for power & wealth – they believe themselves to be a “Master Race”, uniquely fitted – chosen, even – to rule.  With an iron fist, if they feel necessary!
