You may be tempted to think that what I propose is not simply audacious, but impossible. It is not. By understanding the natural affects of this movement on the social consciousness we can amplify our signal and begin to mold reality to suit our design.
How is this possible? It is possible because reality - our beliefs, perceptions and even our experience, of what it is and how things work, is elastic. You know this to be true, even if you are not yet aware of it. Think back on the last time you had a fever, or a sleepless night. Your perceptions changed as a result - to a small degree perhaps, but never the less, your experience was not the same as when well rested and fit.
We will give all those who oppose us as a matter of absolute, iron clad ideological commitment, such fits of sleepless agitation that their perceptions of reality and their ability to make decisions and to respond is degraded to such a degree that in the end the empire of lies they have erected will collapse.
It will collapse by our will, with Peace, Truth, and the Weight of Public Opinion.
It begins in your own mind. It begins by understanding who you are, and how you are like everyone else involved in this struggle - on both sides. We are all citizens, united by a set cultural principles, beliefs, and even myths. One of these is that in America you can have a house with a white picket fence. Whether this is a belief borne out by reality today or a myth fostered to give us hope and a sense of pride in our collective unity as Americans remains, at this time, a subject of debate; in no small thanks to the banking industry.
There are those within banking who believe that ‘not everyone should own homes.’ This is a distinctly un-American belief. It is a fundamental contradiction with the principle that all men are created equal. By standing firmly on those principles that are uniquely American and uphold those virtues held in highest esteem - freedom, justice, and democracy - we can subvert anyone to our cause, and those in America who oppose us must fall. They must fall because they are un-American. They cannot help but to fall.
Clarity and mindfulness on this simple principle guarantees our success, and in that sense, we have indeed already won.
To claim that victory we must open our minds. We must understand both the strengths and the weaknesses of organized institutions, whatever they may be. First and foremost, we must understand that they are made up of none other than us. Who are we? Human beings. Americans. The ninety-nine percent. That is who we are and that is the make up every single institution in America. The rich beauty of such a principle lies in its simplicity and its irony - and the one percent have absolutely no clue. For them, the reality will come as no small surprise.
The simple use of old language surrounding common principles of esteem, phrases like ‘liberty and justice for all’; intermingled with new linguistic constructs, constructs of our own design, like ‘targeted interdiction’, is one very simple way of demonstrating both to the 99 and to the 1, that the 1 has lost all control.
We truly do have the power, and once you do come to completely understand this fact, you will be in awe.
