I keep seeing the amount of 'money in the bank' you have earned. Current numbers put it around $300,000.
Burn it. Burn the money. With fire. You have a huge opportunity to make the biggest statement the world has ever seen. Who the fuck burns 300K? People that are tired of the slavery of currency. The people occupying wall street.
Acknowledge that, at its heart, money is the problem here. Money is the tool the rich use to enslave the poor. When it comes down to value, the rich are worthless. They are parasites. The only thing in this world that gives them any sway is currency, the artificial engine that makes the world go round.
And replace it with what? I don't have that answer, but I'm sure we can come up with something. Money doesn't do its job, it doesn't make sure people do good things for society. It always turns into a game of scheming, how to beat the system. We are human, we will always hack the system, no matter what it is; computers, governments, financial systems. We will hack them all, no matter the cost.
Honestly, I don't really blame any of the bankers on Wall Street. They are hackers, like the rest of us, exploiting the system for gain. Unfortunately, in the currency system, their gain is your loss. They are just trying to ensure their survival, like all of you. Perhaps they are cruel and heartless, ignorant or uncaring of their sins, but their actions are certainly not unexpected.
The evils committed by the rich are a direct result of the system. The system we built created these people. We are to blame. As soon as we stop blaming others and realize we are just as much at fault as they are, we can begin to move forward.
EDIT: I really appreciate everyone's comments and participation! I want to point out that money is only a symbol for wealth and power. In the real world, it is worthless. By burning the money we are telling our slavers that we reject their authority they enforce with the currency system. Burning money donated by supporters may appear to be callous and rude, but the statement it would make has potential to have a much larger effect than spending the money to support the occupation alone!
