Forum Post: This movement is about the 99 percent but the 1% is stealing the floor

Don't let the one percent get all the attention just like they horde all the world's abundance. Don't forget why you are here ... focus on the 99 show why we are here - it's about them, it's about feeling, it's about caring, it's about sharing a world that came with so much abundance but was taken by only 1% of the population for themselves. We can be a voice - we're their only chance - choose what you post carefully show why you care http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS_YDymGo8SmMj9Nes_g8l0IEcR5zW4kvjyAwGyUu1_NMFAS6AM http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQzyH9_JBxYcZoHZWxIpFOw16d2UEtuS27gAWZXPZL0ca8r50yW http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRutoDtIBpWXIWx8VEHFRnXaTsLhO6ybTE-bAMnkI_2w4COMfbS

Read the Rules

I'm confused. Telling people that I am afraid of living in a society ruled by the 1%, that helps how? Shouldn't we be doing more then talking? It is still possible to get laws made, regulate corporations, tax people and companies appropriately. Instead of telling people we're afraid, how about using the first amendment. Not the whiney free speech part. The part about petitioning the government.

Why waste time telling other citizens I'm afraid? How about encouraging everyone to write to their government? Pick one issue and write a letter to you Senators and Congressperson. May not help, but it can't possibly be less effective then telling people I'm afraid.

The movement is a voice for that - but it has to demonstrate it's cause. People will not join a mish-mosh of proposals and arguments. They need to see what they're joining - then action and protest will follow. Up til now they get every cause under the sun and they are confused. The propaganda says this is about student loans and whiners. People however can't argue with starvation and the fact that the planet has abundance for all - well maybe only one percent can.

So you're adding another cause to the list, fine, it happens to be a good one. My complaint is partly the same as yours, too many causes. More importantly however is this tendency to simply complain about things as though just complaining, marching, occupying, was all that is necessary. Just complaining isn't going to change things.

I'm afraid the one percent would poison my food if it would make them more profits - I fear being a cost of doing business ... I fear their politics of partnering with regimes that enslave their people will carry here to America - I'm here to stand against the one percent who might be missing the gene for compassion http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTjklCT052ZptKloRrS4csIGYymbPuw876pHXMIkAYpPQ-hir3T

Stop arguing with the one percent - we know what's right. Show the world why we are here DEMONSTRATE your compassion - who do you care about? Tell people why you fear living in a society ruled by the one percent ... maybe one percent of all people lack compassion - show that yours is in tact
