The press, or as i call them, "stenographers for our oligarchic financial overlords", are full of stories like these. DON'T LET THEM GET TO YOU! Ridicule is one of their weapons; they want you to feel hopeless. It is the goal of every oppressor to rid its rebels of hope; hopeless people don't need to be quashed; they do it to themselves. ARTICLES LIKE THIS MEAN YOU'RE WINNING.
Occupy Wall Street: An Utterly Pointless, Meaningless, Futile Exercise
This one has it right: Protesters: Today's 'rioters,' tomorrow's righteous http://www.cnn.com/2011/09/28/opinion/kohn-tradition-of-protests/
https://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=10150409084095833 all of the work for evolution needed to get done first. now we have a protest without a clear message.
Really, Is the business times ever going to endorse the cause? Lol.
I say it is a utteryly pointless, moronic, idiotic, futile article.
but it says exactly what i think about the way this entire thing is currntly going... how do you expect to convince people without an actual rebutal?
A rebuttal is as follows: Corporations have more rights than you do. Companies can merger, but Adam and Steve can't get married. Corporations have more sway over government than people. I have met very few persons that did not agree with these statements. I have also met very few persons that felt this was right and proper. If you feel this is right and proper and just, carry on. If not, stand with us.
my problem with the group is not that i agree with all of what is currently going on in this country tho there are many aspects of it i do... in fact i agree that large changes to the status quo would be beneficial and are required for the continued prosperity of our country... however i see a distinct lack of a cohesive structure behind the protest as well as contradictory statements made by various segments. Without cohesion these protests go from being a force for change to a footnote in the history books...
Anastasious you asked for a rebuttal, I gave you one. Do you disagree with it? If not, tell someone else. Tell them to tell someone else. Spread it. Go grassroots. Real grassroots! The Tea Party had it easy, they have Corporate sponsors with billions. All we have is ourselves. If you want organization, Organize! We'll get to cohesion if we work for it. Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Help!
