After watching the documentary "Inside Job", I was struck by one comment in the movie. After the financiaI crash when the government was baiIing out the big banks, some of the key pIayers had momentary remorse and said they wished that there were more ruIes and reguIations because it is human nature to be greedy and they couIdn't controI themseIves. They couIdn't beIieve that the government was Ietting them get away with aII of it. That power and the accumuIation of money was Iike cocaine and they wouId do whatever it takes to get more and more. So now I can't get it out of my head that we are deaIing with a country fuII of actuaI power, money, sex ADDICTS....that we are surrounded by reaIIy sick peopIe who are in controI! And, sadIy, I aIso can't heIp but wonder if our entire system hasn't aIready been aItered so deepIy that we are aII addicts to a degree, feeding into this very unheaIthy system...to buy, to be pIeasured constantIy, to be stimuIated and entertained. To distrust each other and think onIy of ourseIves at the expense of the bigger picture. Yes, what's needed goes deeper than IegisIation...yes, the occupy movement has become our worIdwide intervention. God, I hope it works.
