"Owned & Operated is a mosaic of the world through the lens of the internet. Showing our lives as consumers, under the thumbs of privileged individuals and their methods of control. But the world is awakening, and the experience is something outside the normal rules of social interaction, causing excitement in those who are not served by the current system... and fear in those who are pampered by it.

This documentary attempts to present these events using the video, audio and written content uploaded to the internet by the collective human consciousness comprised of every individual participant.

Oh yes, change is coming... and it will be more dramatic than anybody can imagine."

It's an open source documentary made in association with Occupy and like-minded groups like Anonymous and TZM. No narration, just a long masterful assemblage of video clips.

It's interesting when one starts using stats to present or support a position...stats can be manipulated to reflect almost anything one wants them to reflect.

Saying the top earners pay 30% of the tax revenue collected is a nice little example of a statistic that can be manipulated.

15% of millions is $150,000 of each million, given that the top earners claim multiple millions adds up...yet 28% of thousands is @280 per thousand, that too adds up multiplied by a larger base number of participants.

What would happen if the 1% leaves? Probably not as much as some might think...given that the 1% has a large portion of it's income earning capacity outside the US already.

There could be huge pluses to this scenario...opportunities opening for those with less than millions to open new business, to innovate...

Then again, What ifs, rate right up there with the 'coulda, woulda, shoulda' mentality so many engage in.

Statistics certainly can be misleading, but they can also be very straightforward and telling. It pays to be skeptical if the numbers are vaguely represented
