I really love this movement. All the individuals starting, building, and participating in this global-spreading Occupy Movement are the true heroes of the world. This earth and it´s inhabitants despertaly need changes, and this movement will in time play a huge role in creating a better world! "In this possibly terminal phase of human existence, democracy and freedom are more than just ideals to be valued - they may be essential to survival" -Noam Chomsky

Update: My new article The Transition Phase: The Road To Freedom has now been posted on my blog

Keep on growin´ keep on fightin´. Greetings and solidarity from Norway. SFF

I believe this movement has much potential but the negative actions by the few are effecting the whole. If possible further training in how to handle yourself in protest needs to be done. Not just a single class or two instead daily class that goes over the basics. According to some polls we are sitting around 30-35% acceptance but to grow this number larger action must be taken to clean up our image. We need people actively working on PR with easy to digest goals and groups teaching while keeping in check the more violent participants. With out a united front we cannot hope to stand against those who wish us to fail. I apologize if this came off preachy but this movement in my eyes needs to succeed for good of all Americans.

Once again an example of the failure of OWS to do anything to truly progress the movement to the source in DC. These foolish assemblies in NYC have done nothing but taint you position and rapidly lose support. Nov 6th, you had the opportunity to promote "Occupy the White House" but chose to secretly support "stop the pipeline while working with the DNC and (I've since discovered) the National Democractic Socilist Party. This is why you are falling apart at the General Assembly level, and continue to attract the Black Bloc Anarchists.. Stop this foolishness in NYC now, and Amass at the White House to Occupy the White House..Occupy the peoples house and Congress. OWH. That is what the majority of the Occupy movement is calling for, and now seems to be landing on "deaf ears" as this Nov. 17th operation will prove. This is your end..Your self-destruction. GO TO WASHINGTON..The Capitol Police will not steal your tents and Generators. OWH..Take your demands to the source. The President supports you and wants you there now. OWH Now!!!

Our emperors have no clothes. Our emperors have no shame. These governors, mayors, city councils, police chiefs and street cops of America need to realize that it is NOT UP TO THEM whether or not Americans peaceably gather , protest, discuss, or demonstrate. It's up to a document called the US CONSTITUTION. Zuccotti Park is no longer just  a place - Zuccotti Park is everywhere. You can beat us and arrest us and tear-gas us, you can try to "permit" us to death....but you can't kill an idea. You can't keep down a people’s hopes and dreams for a better life.....a life with dignity and freedom....for us, and for our kids. More power to Occupy Wall Street, as it spreads to every town and city. Because OWS is us, and for us, and by us. It comes up from the grassroots, and it lifts us up in turn. With OWS America has found it’s voice, and that voice demands fairness and justice - for ALL. This land IS our land! AND WE WANT IT BACK! We want our LIVES back! We want our FUTURE back! But it’s much more than just words.... it’s much more than just politics.... it’s your LIFE, and how you want to live it. So why not take some time, find a quiet place somewhere, and consider this: Each of us has only one brief life....one chance....one roll of the dice....and many choices. The time has come to choose....to risk...and to act. If not now...then when? If not you, then....who? You DO have the power my friend....and the choice IS yours. Don’t let your dreams die....

This is a tangent, but I just read on Alternet how Jay Z, the billionaire rap artist, has co-opted the theme of the Occupy Wall Street movement with a line of shirts reading "Occupy All Streets." Given how this person's influence in NYC has helped to promote economic inequality and given how this person brags about their material success, clearly the message of the OWS movement has not impressed him much...go figure.

America must show us the way, not alone in a global revolution, but simply lead the way in History.

What the current two party system, and the the elite of the America fail to realize, is that by greed and oppression they hack the very things that make America a super power and a great country to live in.

This system of greed, has now reached a point that its eating on itself. The weaker the USA gets economically, the greater is the global power vacuum.

I don't want to live in a century where China calls ALL the shorts. Hell no! I don't, so I pray that people of america are able to rise in revolt, and bring an end to the idiocracy of the Financial sector, and this capitalist cannibalism.

Not necessarily true for instance company's are reporting record profits yet are still downsizing people. Business does not grow jobs just because they have money there must be a need big enough to necessitate the job. This argument is akin to I buy ice cream if Im taxed less I can buy more ice cream. Now will I buy more ice cream no I actually have enough so I would just keep the money. Thank you for your argument I hope my statement was some what helpful.

[-] 1 points by ARealNewYorker (227) from Brooklyn, NY 10 years ago

I want to second this. The studies that show that taxes are disincentives to invest were mostly conducted decades ago. There may be some truth to them, in general (although the truth is that the truth is far more complicated - larger companies often advocate for tax increases at the local level when they know that the programs that the revenue will be used for would have been far more costly if they had to pay for them themselves). But the game is way different in the current situation. Companies are not just sitting on piles of money, they're sitting on piles of money they made by laying people off and outsourcing over the last twenty years (mostly to countries where the cost of labor was kept artificially low by the governments in those countries and where extremely low taxes were used as incentives to draw business - corporations love big government when they don't have to pay for it). Currently, taxes are incredibly low for companies that are large enough to outsource in order to keep producing; the marginal tax rate is at 35% but a recent study by the CTJ showed that the effective tax rate for the top 280 corporations in the US is somewhere around 18%, with 30 of the largest corporations actually having a negative tax liability; http://ctj.org/ctjreports/2011/11/corporate_taxpayers_corporate_tax_dodgers_2008-2010.php. A recent World Bank report claimed that the US is the fifth best country in the world to do business in, based mainly on a measure of regulations; http://www.doingbusiness.org/reports/global-reports/doing-business-2011/. What is more likely is that larger corporations will use the excuse that they won't hire when they weren't planning to do so anyway in order to get people to support their anti-tax initiatives. Any quick glance at the major oil companies will show how little most larger corporations intend to spend on job creation - Exxon Mobil, for example, spent more money on stock buybacks than it did on R & D over the last several years, and R & D is what creates jobs (stock buybacks do nothing but fill the coffers of the major shareholders who buy them up (and who are frequently CEOs) since they no longer have to pay out dividends); this is general information on large corporations' stock buybacks: http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/content/09_34/b4144096907029.htm.

[-] 1 points by Shule (2638) 10 years ago

May I complicate the discussion some by describing one corporation's hiring practices; that of a particular defense contractor that is wholly dependent on the defense department for its billion + dollar income. This corp hires people in spite of the fact there is little actual work to do. Most people (at least in the office) sit around and vainly tray to find trivia to do. The reason for this becomes clear around contract time which usually comes around about the same time as election time. The corp then threatens the Defense Department that they will have to lay off so and so many people if they don't get the contract. Under pressure from Congress the Defense Department caves, and the bloated contract gets awarded. The employees in essence are but fodder in a high stake extortion scheme. That is how at least on defense contractor that I know of operates. It would not surprise me if more operate the same.
I,m at odds with the practice; at least this corp keeps its people employed, but what all does it say about our "capitalist free enterprise" system?

The estimated cost of attendance for 2011-12 is $52,670 and includes:

Tuition: $37,000

Room charge: $6,596

Board rate: $5,473

Estimated miscellaneous expenses: $3,601

The room charge and board rate are standard for University dormitories and meal plans. Estimated miscellaneous expenses include the residential college fee, activities fees, class dues and a one-time transcript fee. These items, totaling $865 of the $3601 estimated books and personal expenses, are billed by the University along with tuition, room and board. Financial aid credits are deducted from the University bill of $49,934 for those who qualify, leaving the remainder due as a family payment on either a semester or monthly basis.

This estimate does not include the cost of travel, which may range between $100 and $2,500. Students who are not covered by a family health insurance policy must purchase Student Health Plan coverage for $1,620. University charges are likely to increase modestly for 2012-13.

This is meaningless information. Some of the protesters live in residences that are worth a lot. Do they own those residences? Even if they do, and even if they are well above average in their assets, etc they are protesting for economic equality, so good for them!!! As well, for anyone not aware of real estate prices in NYC, 500K will maybe get a 600 square foot, 2-bedroom apartment in a nice neighborhood in Brooklyn. Even in a "bad" neighborhood a small 1-bedroom is going for at least 200K. Try raising a family in 600 square feet. New Yorkers get screwed with very high rents and few can afford to buy! The rich in NYC have apartments worth millions. Even an average home in a nice neighborhood in Brooklyn or Queens costs 2 million (at least ! in Manhattan real estate costs much, much more). A residence worth 500K is hardly luxury here - it is actually incredibly cheap. The average people in NYC feel the bite of economic inequality fiercely as the cost of living here is so high. A salary of 60K would provide a comfortable middle-class life elsewhere in the country, but for NYC and cities like it (San Francisco or DC for example) that salary is barely middle-class.

[-] 1 points by aaronparr (597) 10 years ago

While I agree with you your numbers are muddled. Someone with a salary of $60k can only afford a $180k residence and so your mention of such has nothing to do with $500k houses.

The real question is about those statistics mentioned. They are taken out of context and do not include the whole picture. In essence they are pure BS. You are right it is meaningless information.

[-] 1 points by ARealNewYorker (227) from Brooklyn, NY 10 years ago

This means basically nothing. First of all, there may be many people in the movement who have an animus against "the rich," but most people don't mind the existence of money, they just mind what people do with it. Buying one nice house isn't quite as bad as buying an election. And way to mix up a slogan with the real thought behind it (by your logic everyone can give Obama a big thumbs up for promising "change we can believe in" because change is a constant thing (Obama changed his shoes from yesterday to today), and at least two people (a "we") including Obama believe it happened) Secondly, maybe these people are tired of their comfortable house (the USA) being built on a pile of corpses (everyone affected by the tax, assistance, environmental, and foreign policies of the gang of right wing psychos that have had outsized influence for the past forty years), and they're trying to lay the foundations for a better society. Just because someone has wealth doesn't make them a hypocrite for wishing institutions existed properly and justly to distribute wealth. And just because many people have acquired wealth unjustly doesn't mean that others haven't acquired it justly. We'll never know who is who based on arrest records.

'Not a solution' Mayor Jean Quan has drawn withering criticism for her handling of previous attempts to shut down the encampment.

"Tonight's incident underscores the reason why the encampment must end. The risks are too great," Quan said. "We need to return (police) resources to addressing violence throughout the city. It's time for the encampment to end. Camping is a tactic, not a solution."

Exactly why you will fail. You cannot achieve positive change by constantly pissing of the working class. Mob mentality rules you stupid sheep!

John Corstales said he was particularly upset about an incident involving New York Police Inspector Anthony Bologna, who was reprimanded by the department following circulation of a video of him pepper-spraying protesters on Sept. 24.

“He is the best captain in this neighborhood for five years. No better human being than him,”.

Do you have a man crush on John Corstales? I'm also suspect about the turd tossing story, I mean, given your name and all. If it's all true, I'm missing all the fun....

Any individual committing a crime can be punished as an individual committing a crime - period. These things happen every single day. This is not going to stop with simple libelous gerrymandering. But thanks for looking out for the safety and welfare of ordinary citizens!

So, instead of X amount of people occupying wall street, we're going to to have X+Y amount of people occupying wall street? Now if I learned anything at the Crackerson institute of Mathematics, I'd have to say that it sounds like the movement is GROWING...carry on.

John Corstales said he planned to take the employees of his restaurant — Essex World Cafe, located a block away from Zuccotti Park — to the news conference.

“I’ll bring all my people. These protesters—they’re not even protesters, they don’t know anything—they are horrible. They break things, they steal, I have to close my bathrooms and bring customers downstairs [to employee restrooms],” he said.

“You should see what they have done to my gate, what they do every night when we are closed,” he said, referring to vandalism and damage to the exterior of his restaurant.

One of his employees said the urination and fecal matter in the neighborhood are among the worst of the problems. A construction worker who works nearby said he saw someone defecating into a newspaper, which was then rolled up and thrown across the street.

When John Edwards was running for Pres, his candidacy was predicated on "There are 2 Americas". He became popular for promoting Class Warfare. When Obama bought his 2 buses (GREYHOUND 1 and GREYHOUND 2) he went on a tour and stood behind his teleprompter and screamed at America that the rich don't pay enough and have to pay more. He also blamed Corporations for not hiring people so they received his class warfare rants as well. When the American people fall for this kind of claptrap, you get what we have in the streets right now.
