Forum Post: It's Messy, It's Ugly, It's Disorganized.

Been reading on this post lately about the image problem. It's messy, it's ugly, it's disorganized. And it's also hard to defend the criticism of those who are seeing it that way. But the fact is that it is chaos, brought on by the collapse of the rule of law that caused Amcrica's economic meltdown. Until America's top employers take responsibility for the chaos they have spilled out onto our streets, it is likely to continue. This is not a protest, this is the desperation of good people being denied an outlet for their labor. And such chaos is not going to be pretty. It's just going to be a little too, real.

You are dreaming if you think mass protests will change the way companies operate. You can only change the way you spend your money and who you do business with.

Well in my dream, millioins of dissatisfied customers take to the street and shout up to the big executives in their offices shouting, your products stink, your products put my grandma out of her home, your products took my wife off life-saving medicine, your products cost me my job, your products hurt my kid's chances to complete collete, your products are bad, and we will not do business with you ever again, and also listening, in my dream, are new executives who are saying, hmmm. sounds like there's a huge need that needs filling in the market, think I'll serve that need and make billions, gee, it's really true, when a business gets too big it topples, and this time they are toppling to the cheers of millions of dissatisfied customers. As a veteran business person, I'm sleepng well knowing there is a happy ending, because those who refuse to adapt in business are replaced by the younger and stronger, and it's a beautiful thing.

The entire planet has an image problem. And you are quite correct, this is a protest of desperation. And desperate people take desperate measures. it is going to get ugly. What we see now is only the tip of the iceberg.

We can play the blame game till hell freezes over, but the simple fact is that it is over. Time to discuss how the hell we put it back together...after the chaos.

Yes, but what the blame-less fear most of all is being publicly humiliated by theose they have been taking advantage of. The specter of protesters marching outside an unfair employer in the light of day is what they really fear. They fear nothing as much, and even an escalation to true chaos would bring them relief. Public indignation is the greatest weapon, hence the squeeling from the righties. That's why they are so desperate to put a lid on mass market media, they can't get away with being this greedy, because they only enjoy it when it's enjoyed in private. That deep pshchological need for privacy and secrecy is what makes them different, and what smokes them out.

"We can play the blame game till hell freezes over, but the simple fact is that it is over. Time to discuss how the hell we put it back together...after the chaos."

It's over? The politicians and bureaucrats who are actually responsible for this mess are sipping on margaritas on their yachts while this movement protests the park. The problems won't end until the people who are actually responsible for this mess are stopped. Unfortunately though, you guys would rather protests parks and irrelevant businesses which have absolutely nothing to do with the problems... Woo, lets occupy KFC!!!1!!11111

It's happening where it's happening, and it's happening below the windows of some of the largest employers in the world, and they are noticing.

They may be sipping on margaritas but they have still noticed:

Cool story bro. Hopefully soon you'll place blame where it belongs: On the politicians and bureaucrats who are in charge of "regulating" the economy by giving their friends favors. I guess it's easier to blame the "monocle wearing, mustache twirling, capitalist", even though they have absolutely no power without the assistance of government.

I'll back you up on that sector. I simply want it stated that those who are responsible, and there are too many to count, know who they are, and this is the result of their shortsightedness. Enjoy the day.
