History repeats itself and every successful societal revolution in history started out just like the Occupy Wall Street movement has started with just one exception: OWS still has no leader.
Without a leader, you have no point on the spear and no real direction. Think of 6 people in a raft trying to row from one side of the lake to the other. Without a leader for the 6 rowers to watch, the raft will simply spin around in circles.
Think of the American Revolution. Many men such as yourselves considered themselves radicals and wanted to fight against the British Nobles; many of those men died because they were rowing the raft in different directions getting nowhere.
Romney and Obama share the same ideology but from opposite ends of the spectrum.
The Conservative GOP and the Democratic Liberals are basically the same party, just opposite sides of the room; the rest of us aren't invited.
All of them represent the American Elitists. Why else are we so disappointed with the Obama Administration? He let us down because his rhetoric sounded so liberating but when he took office he became just another American Elitist; once he walked into the castle he never came back out.
I am an old man (not so old, actually – just over 50) and I have been waiting a long time for this revolution that you young people are starting. But you’re doing it all wrong! You look like a bunch of Elitist wannabes out to gain personal validation.
Get organized! Figure out your mission! Elect or appoint a body of leaders and watch their lead so that you all row the raft in the same direction.
If you continue the way you began then they will divide and conquer you. The OWS might be popular for one or two generations but history will only remember you as a bunch of misguided myopic discontents.
If I were your leader my first order of business would be to formerly register the OWS as an American political party and then I would encourage every member and supporter of the OWS to NOT VOTE this coming election.
If you want to “create real change from the bottom up” then stop putting the same group of people in power every four years. Study the history of America and learn!
The American Judicial System was formed as an institution where the average citizen could get justice – the first of its kind in the history of the world. But the system is corrupted; it’s been purposefully distorted by the lawyers for the convenience of the lawyers.
The American citizen, no matter how innocent they are, must be wealthy for the American judicial system to work. And the wealthy American, no matter how guilty they are, can always count on the system to work.
The American Judicial system is now no different than the Majlis-e-Shoora (Pakistan Parliament). The same thing is happening to healthcare -- if you are not an American Elitist then you might as well travel to Mexico for your healthcare.
The elite barristers in America who call themselves counselors should all be ashamed and embarrassed but they are too busy counting their coins.
Those barristers are the politicians, the prosecutors, the judges, the congress, the senate, and even the presidents of the US. They have sacrifised "for the people" and replaced it with "for the lawyer".
The OWS is off to a good start but don’t blow it now by pretending its cool to be spontaneous and random; it is a waste of good energy. Empowerment only goes so far on its own and then it needs to be tamed and harnessed just like a stallion.
Think! Think hard!! Find yourself a moral leader with respectable intentions and listen to him/her. Study how our founding fathers successfully fought against the ruling nobles by picking one good man (George Washington) and do the same thing! Take the next step and don't blow it or you will surely die!!!!
