I have encountered a relentless amount of users who either ignorant or are misguided. This is not a movie review, but rather a hopeful education to users, guests, and protestors alike to fully understand what you should be protesting for whether it is with OWS or not (without too much reading). Don't forget to also read the resources at www.nycga.net

I implore you to stay up to date with politics and know past politics. To accomplish this I suggest watching the Rachel Maddow Show. I also encourage watching the bit she does on Reaganomics or 'voodoonomics'. The Wall Street Journal always is very informative as well as The Colbert Report - do not be fooled for everything he says is an inside suggestion.

Most importantly if you would like to have a history lesson on politics, you should read "We the People: A Call to Take Back America" by Thom Hartmann. The greatness of this book is that it is written in a comic style so anyone can read it while still maintaining serious insight. This book is accepted as a text book to numerous college sociology classes.

I would also like to further suggest an education on the actual corruption we are protesting against. This part involves documentaries and will take a week to ingest. Take the time to watch Michael Moore's documentary films entitled "Sicko" and "Capitalism: A Love Story". Don't forget to visit Moore's website for information as well. Then head on over to the Zeitgeist documentaries by Peter Joseph with the first priority being Zeitgeist: Addendum. Keep in mind the Zeitgeist films are factual and a scientific approach to politics.

Now you need to know solutions. My favorite one is the one Zeitgeist promoted before which is The Venus Project thought up by Jacque Fresco. I also enjoy this solution with Project Earth's solution with dealing with natural resources. Now you should head on over to review and read Roosevelt's Second Bill of Rights. There is no reason why we can't create our own solutions and combine solutions from others!

At this point you choose what to do. You are now informed and can take any approach to the subject - but now you can actually form a decent informed opinion. Never again may some one call you ignorant, my dear sir.

Here's a video as well depicting the global uprisings. I finally found the one I was searching for. It's a 14 part series and I am supposing this part is my favorite one:


If you reach this end and do not wish to protest you can alternatively look at this "Occupy Reality: Anti-Occupy Wall Street" group over at Facebook. The government is the way it is for a reason, and if you work hard you will eventually become successful. Reaganomics does work - it rewards those who are hard-working, successful, and pay their taxes. Please take a look at the site below:

Does anyone else remember the 'We Are One' protest? I'm wondering if I should add that in as I'm not sure if its relevant.
