~ This was from a statement from an article on Yahoo News talking about the definition of economic justice and how the government is promising this for the people. This is my thought on the subject. ~

"The goal of ‘chop the government down' is significantly different than economic justice - making sure that there is hope and prospects and safety nets for everyone," Dobbs said.

"This is not a struggle that comes gift-wrapped ... The only thing most people in this country think you can do is stay at home, or go vote," he said. OWS "has brought people another way to take action - get out on the street and protest."

-"economic justice - making sure that there is hope and prospects and safety nets for everyone." Is this what the governement is promising now? I know a lot of people who have none of these three things and have had none of these things for a long time. Some people even go their entire lives without them. When has there ever been economic justice. The 1% controls and are above all of the laws that were created. Hope. Prospects. Safety nets. The key thing needed for all of these is money. Where does that leave the 99%. Who strugle every day to provide for their familes, some working multiple jobs. let's not forget the everyday stresses and worries that comes with it. For instance, not having enough money to put food on the table and pay all of your bills. This is a problem for the middle class and lower class. The Upper Class well let's just say they have it a bit easier then us lower class of people. Why is this? Now is a great time to be asking it.

Thanks for your time, if you agree or have suggestions please leave a comment. I have a lot more ideas on the wrongs of the world.

"brought them another way"....this is just more proof of how apathetic this "democracy" is....that people need to be shown how to be pissed off.

A secondary component of ACT could be support for the creation of worker-owned cooperatives through crowdfunding. This would require a Cooperative Employment Service that would assess the skills of the unemployed individuals to patronize it and match them with a suggested cooperative business plan. Upon acceptance or rejection of the plan for an alternative plan, the Cooperative Employment Service would facilitate the crowdfunding of the new cooperative business. Of course, each municipality of cooperative communities should have their own branch of a nationwide Cooperative Credit Union.
