Occupy protests have broken out all across the country, protesting issues as diverse as Wall Street itself, the Tar Sands Oil Pipeline, college tuition hikes, proposals to downsize the U.S. Postal Service, and many others. All of these issues seem separate, yet they trend in a single direction, that of social, economic, and ecological justice.
It has resulted in the appearance of chaos to those in control, creating the impression that things are spinning out of control, and so instilling fear.
This is a beautiful thing.
As a part of our multi-faceted attack upon the greed and corruption that so infects our social, economic, and political landscape, I would advocate another position we could adopt, and that is to see those fraudulent lenders involved in the sub-prime loan scandal arrested and charged with those crimes where there is ample documentation. The more I contemplate this possibility, the more I tend to like it.
This will get attention.
This will appear like chaos.
This will inspire fear among those who once thought themselves invulnerable.
Let them be afraid and tremble. Let them know -
