Conclusion.

Can the 99% represent an alternative the 1% wishes to deny? Is it possible for the 99% to depose the 1% under current conditions, free themselves of greed and irresponsibility, and build a better world for themselves and their descendants? Yes, it is possible! And how?

Because the 1% will never change, indulge, give up its way of living and its privileged position, it is the 99% who need to change. Justice, responsibility, solidarity, equality, unity and humanity need to be brought into force. All these positive values that are already inside of us, that enrich us. Only they have the power to conquer the evil that is tearing us apart, leading to destruction.

What is possible and what is plausible are two different things. If the 1% will never change, there's no basis for claiming that the 99% will change. The masses of humanity have not suffered thousands of years of tyranny around the globe because they're willing to change.

"all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed."

-Declaration of Independence

"All exploitation is based on co-operation, willing or forced, of the exploited. However much we may detest admitting it, the fact remains that there would be no exploitation if people refused to obey the exploiter. But self comes in and we hug the chains that bind us."

-Mahatma Gandhi

The 100% are all human with the corrupt dispositions that bring about corruption at all levels of society. Roughly half of the so-called 99% is composed of conservatives who don't seek a society that's better for everyone while the liberal half seeks to have things imposed on everyone that everyone need not be apart of.

With FreeDA http://occupywallst.org/forum/free-democracy-amendment/ , people have the choice of creating a better selection of politicians who are legally bound to serve the specific interests of the People.

Through FreeDA/MEI, people can have local laws created to protect their local economy from corporate exploitation.

And perhaps most important of all, through FreeDA/CES, people can actually end unemployment and change society for the better, eventually bringing an end to the 1%.

But are people really for taking action to bringing about these things or are people still content enough to only want to complain?

"All exploitation is based on co-operation"

Ghandi nailed this one down!

Not without the use of lethal force. You can't win when you show up to a gun fight with a stick....

Sounds great. I am with you! How do we do it?

Very positive message!! Yes we can!!! Many here think it starts with getting money out of politics. I agree to an extent...but I think ultimately we need to start at the root cause, which is the elite oligarchs themselves. How do we know who to keep out of politics if we don't know "who" we're fighting?

I say "Expose The Oligarchs" so the masses know 'who' we're dealing with. Most folks don't know that the people they 'admire' publicly, are the very people who have caused this misery. People like Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Bush Senior, Clintons, Rockefellers, Rothschilds, etc., who are seen sometimes as heros, are still pulling the strings. If we expose these people for the criminals they are, that would immediately change things.

Agreed. We must stop the Illuminati. We must take off their masks.
