I've heard that people have been considering using tactics that are questionable. Among these is blocking traffic or blocking the entrance to the stock exchange. Before you come up with more ideas I'd like you guys to keep one thing in mind. Know your enemy. If your tactics affect people who are not your enemy then the it is not justified. By blocking traffic you're targeting people on their way to work and by blocking wallstreet you're blocking access for traders to go to work as well. The enemy are not traders, its not the police, its not people who invest, its not wallstreet or the capitalist system as a whole. The enemy are a group of corporations that are ruining our democracy and our country. Among them are the banks, the oil/coal industry, the weapons industry, the pharmaceutical industry (to some extent) and any other corporation that relies on money to influence our democratic system. This group does not include corporations that are beneficial to society like general mills, apple, coca cola, etc... So the next time you come up with new tactics ask yourself the following question "Am I targeting the enemy or innocent people?
