These days, most occupiers of 2011 are working in big companies like Google.

What big company do you dream of working in?

“I don't have employers. As I said, I am an independent broker. I mainly place orders on blue chips. Make and lose money depending on how markets go.” - by DavidJameson

Get a real job! Those who make money by manipulations of finance, insurance and real estate rob everyone by their non productive activities. The FIRE sector is parasitic busyness and a cancer like disease. Those who perform abstract services are parasites like the ruling class of Wall St. plutocrats and rentiers. They are destructive to the economy and a threat to life.

I use AI systems I developed. I spend about 6 hours setting up my week on Monday morning, then I'm done. The money I make is from others who also try to make money the same way I do. I'm not robbing anyone.

The other 6 days a week I spend working on projects with various occupy people around US.

A lot of them quit and work for big companies now, but some are still active with occupy projects.

You define parasitic activity. You produce no tangible product or service nor do the "others" from whom you make money. You are making something from nothing, despite the common knowledge that: Ex nihilo nihil fit!

The FIRE sector is a fraud! I know you don't understand that. Few have since the time of Moses, who clearly tried to deal with the deadly parasitism in the law he wrote. But his law and most law is so flawed in so many ways that the good that usury bans might have done, if the rest of the code was consistently well formed on righteous principles. is thrown out with the bad.

It depends what your moral definition is, which is something highly subjective. I don't see anything wrong with a pool of people who decide to play the stock market against each other. By working only 6 hours a week, I am able to concentrate the rest my time on important occupy activities. I find that better than working long hours at a job I don't like, getting little pay, and not being able to do anything else.

"I don't see anything wrong..."

Look again! That's what every conservative since John C. Calhoun said about every evil thing they've ever done. And there's very little that you morons do that isn't evil.

No doubt this answer pleases a "concern troll." I've wasted more time and breath answering you and that's your intention. https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Concern_troll

Well, I believe in socialized health care and wish US could get it much like Canada. I believe in making guns illegal. In free schooling, which would include free universities.

If that makes me a conservative, then so be it.

No. It just makes you schizy. One who demonstrates no self knowledge. To speak plainly: you have no idea who or what you are though it seems to come through clearly to the rest of us.

I'm surprised you don't support socialized health care and schooling. Were you at Zuccotti park in 2011? Or are you one of those poser occupiers who never occupied anything but a bathroom?

Then you are blind or are totally false. Being part of the group that raises costs on everyone else for your own personal gain "is" being part of the disease that Occupy came into being to protest!

You don't understand stocks I see. Socks don't raise product prices.

I recommend Stocks for Idiots. A good book that would help you comprehend economics.

I fully understand what you claim to be = a trader that tries to buy low and sell high, adding nothing positive to the trades, just profiting off of your manufactured inflation! Then you parasites get all out of control create vast bubbles which are unsupportable and crash the economy when they burst whereby you go beg for Public Monies from government to bail your parasitic asses out & then also take bonuses off of the Public's bail-out money!

Again, please... Stocks for Idiots. It will help you understand.

False. What you describe happens with high volatility stocks. Like Crypto or penny stocks. I don't buy low and sell high, and I don't make tons of trades. Like I stated prior, I make money from Blue Chip stocks. Such stocks are held by big stable companies. In that context, stocks don't crash the economy or affect those businesses. It's the other way around. Apple is a blue chip for example. Their products dictate if they make money or not, and if their products are good, then the stocks go up and I can make money. What can crash the economy is if Apple starts making crap.

No Shit Sherlock?

That couldn't be because small business is being killed off by big business, could it?

That couldn't be one of the reasons the occupy protests happened in the 1st place could it?

You know = being forced to work for mega businesses that don't pay a living wage to their employees? Businesses like the notorious Walmart or Chick Filet or or or or infinitude of other just as abusive BIG employers.

[-] -1 points by DavidJameson (-82) 1 day ago

There are more smaller businesses nowadays than ever before, so no, it's not because big businesses are killing off small businesses.

You think the occupy protests happened so that occupiers could find jobs in big companies?

You think jart went to work for Google because she didn't have a choice, and you think she isn't paid well. She makes a 6 figure salary my friend. So do the other occupiers working there.
