This has always been an interesting topic in Occupy.
I personally don't see corporations changing their behaviors. The banking cartel, for instance, loves war because its expensive. I doubt they are too worried about protesters here.
Congress on the other hand, has the power to re-write the rule book.
Regardless of what you think, at the end of the day, legislation HAS TO BE PASSED in order to turn the tide. So who do you get there?
You can start putting your people in the corporations and try to work your way up, to then lobby congress to pass laws that take money from your company. I don't think corporations would allow that behavior for too long. A couple of days, maybe.
Or you can go straight to the rule writing. And there are two lines of though there:
- Get rid of the Republicans, and we can then mold the Democrats
- Run new candidates based on freedom outside the D/R
- Start an entirely new system altogether and wait for this one to fall apart (which is coming whether you like it or not)
Which one of the four do you think would get the fastest results?
