I'll bet that The Occupy Handbook does NOT break the status quo: "The big con infests America" -- see: Condemn venal journalism for severely fooling the people by hardly ever showing asset price histories that look like cocaine intoxications. Here they are: http://homepage.mac.com/ttsmyf/begun.gif http://www.nytimes.com/imagepages/2006/08/26/weekinreview/27leon_graph2.html http://homepage.mac.com/ttsmyf/RHandRD.html Elaboration: http://occupywallst.org/forum/condemn-venal-journalism-for-severely-fooling-the-/

The foregoing 'fool the people' status quo is intellectual savagery, to which the following pander: journalism, institutions of higher learning, holders of elected office.
