'Perhaps the most frightening thing about this speech is its talk of "anti-politics". Briefly, this is the organized campaign to blame everything on the government- even when big business is really in control. They want the people to hate and fear the government, because democratic government has a dangerous flaw- it actually has the slight chance of becoming truly democratic. You see, corporations are perfect- perfect tyrannies.'

'The average worker, the average citizen, is never going to be able to change or control them. The government is the only thing the average citizen has the potential to control. Therefore the average citizen must be taught to hate, fear, or simply dismiss organized political action. What you get is "anti-politics" where people are totally atomized, fearful and hateful of nearly everything- and totally blind to the real problem'.

The above is taken from the your excellent audio link. All Occpiers need to listen to this and I loved it but will have to finish watching later. Thanks for this and ... Never Give Up Educating and Explaining! Occupy The Real Issues! Solidarity & good wishes for 2013.

I read that twice but am still none the wiser as to what you mean. Do I need a uniform and a large gun to get your point? I have to ride off into the sunset now and take care of my responsibilities but ... Never Give Up Trying To Make Sense! Occupy The Issues! Occupy Wall Street!
