Forum Post: A movement?

I had thought that perhaps there was a movement here. It seems I was wrong as to what type of movement. It seems this isn't about fixing anything, it isn't about getting the influence of corporate America out of politics, or about divesting the wealthy elite. It is about a programmed socialist take over of America. A take over through violence, once "critical mass" is reached. It is about every form of miscreant, mentally ill idealist, and seemingly educated academic, spewing twisted 'theory' working the disenchanted into a frothing frenzy. Indeed you have a movement, a mass societal bowel movement, and as such should be flushed from society.

Always easy to criticize from the backseat.

Warren Buffet said : “There’s class warfare, all right, but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.”

Your frightened, reactionary and ignorant comment is duly noted as is your faux concern for your fellow citizens & The 99%.

Now read this again -

Change - deep and lasting societal change IS both desirable & possible IF we put mankind over money ; nature over narcissism ; people over profit ; wages over war. It's an info battle but violence is Not wanted.

The corporations are the problem, I agree with that. I don't think that anything I have seen here is the answer though. Change the tune your fiddling or your gonna lose any momentum you had. I am truly sorry that my experience here was not more positive. As I've hinted at before, I WAS TEA party. I was an organizer for three counties here in Arkansas. We had around 700 local members. We made it about 3 months, and only that long because we were one of the smaller groups. We were co-opted just like the rest of TEA was, or hell maybe TEA started out co-opted who knows. I do know that the people here honestly believed in the things that Occupy publicly claims that it represents, and the things that we thought TEA represented. Of those 700 I am still in regular contact with about 300. I have no idea without counting my E-mail list exactly how many. None still associate with TEA. We are still active, just not as TEA. We discussed Occupy several times before I decided to give it a try. I cannot go to this group and recommend support for Occupy at this time. Again, I am truly sorry, both for Occupy and for our little group. It seems we are still homeless.

How about the idea of a mixed economy, private ownership with democratic regulation, putting a lid on world resources and vital necessities. How about standardizing campaigning for elections, exposing candidates to the public in a regulated way instead of this open war of free spending. How about regulations in cross business so that weapon manufacturers cannot own tv stations and drug companies cannot control health funds, etc, regulations that put some crucial recognition into the conflict of interest.

There's nothing going on on this forum besides controlled fires to relieve the tension and counter-intelligence to prevent progress. This is the most accessible forum for Occupy, so of course it's the front-line for espionage. Find other ways to connect with people, or create some, i'm begging you.
