A message to occupy wall street ,
Our voice is powerful and wonderful. People are hearing it around the world. People are listening. Banks and other large corporations are scared. However, it is time to take the movement to the next level. It is time for real actions to be taken. We the people have the ability to end this form of rampant capitalism. We as a people are strong and will only become stronger. It is necessary to keep protesting and to keep being heard, without the protest we have no voice, and our message will go unheard. However presenting a message to the public is just the beginning. In order for the occupy movement to be successful a lasting community of love, support, and compassion most be built. No longer can we allow things like sex, religion, race, and sexual preference separate us. It is time to embrace cultural difference and teach each other how to live as one. It is time that we realize that we are able to support each other. It is time that we work together to physically move the boulder that is capitalism. One can yell at a rock for so long. The occupy movement has the ability to succeed where other movements have failed. Within the movement there is a new collective consciousness. We the people are aware that this form of capitalism no longer functions to support a healthy community. We the people are ready for something new. This change is not going to be handed to us no matter how much we yell, reason, and beg. This change needs to come from a populist movement of systemic change. Capitalism, socialism, and communism are nothing more then economic systems; none are inherently fascist or democratic. In fact all three have an equal chance of being democratic or fascist. The change in which the movement should seek is true democracy. This means that we all need to have adequate voice in our political system. In a true democracy the banker would have the same voice as a man without a roof over his head. To accomplish a true democracy we do not need to over throw our government. We need to destroy the economic system that has taken control of everything in our lives. At first it may seem like an impossible task, but there is a simple way to go about systemic change. The basics of a capitalist system are supply and demand. For this reason it will be relatively easy to break down the capitalist system and create something so much better. We the people can dissect every aspect of our capitalist system. If we work together we will be able to disrupt both the supply and demand of the system. The fastest way to destroy what we all see as the problem is to simply stop giving money to the industries that abuse all of us. In order to do this we need to create a network that is for the people and by the people. We the people need to take control of every aspect of our lives. This may sound like a daunting task but we have to realize that we are the system, we are the educators, we are the doctors, we are farmers, we are the producers of goods, we are the cogs in the machine, and we are the fuel that keeps the machine moving. Without us, without the power of the people the capitalist system has nothing. Let us move forward. Let us create something beautiful. Let us forget about profits. Let us live of a life filled with compassion for one another. Let us move beyond this form capitalism. Let us become democratic.
