Arent you, Occupy, using credit cards and banks for your online donations? You know the credit card comapnies and banks that you are vehemently opposing are getting a cut of this transaction. Ironic?



Read the Rules

Fair enough. So after you jail the bank executives, who will run the banks? Your loyal patronage would support the new bank executives' salaries.

We are not against the banks, just the bank executives. Jail them, and we'll be loyal bank customers.

Yea it's unfortunate. But that is kinda of the whole point. The "too big to fail" firms where given those huge bail-outs because they are deemed (with some degree of accuracy) to be absolutely critical and central to our whole society. These giant corporations are so all-pervasive and indispensable in nearly every facet of our lives, that even radical anti-corporate activists cannot completely avoid them.

Depending on your situation, owning a car or having a credit card can be practically a pre-requisite to even live and function in modern society.

It's sad.
