Example of what the people united can do.
About a month ago The DVD Company NETFLIX Tried to raise the prices for their service. They Were forced to make a Public apology, and promise NEVER to raise prices again, After almost 1 million members cancelled their subscriptions.
That's people United.. We should do the same thing in all area's, UNITE To put a end to morgage forclosures and banks ripping the 99% off. stop buying products the rip us off,. force the Rich 1% to take the people seriously.
I LOVE THE OCCUPY WALLSTREET MOVEMENT. KEEP IT UP.
It wasn't the people, it was Redbox and Blockbuster that figured out how to be more competitive to give the people what they wanted, Redbox got DVD's to the consumer faster and cheaper, Blockbuster (which is still struggling) and other smaller local video stores dealt with the studios to get the right to distribute the DVD's earlier than both Netflix and Redbox. And Hulu got em on the streaming portion with better choices and selection. Netflix adjusted to survive because of the actions of other companies...not the people...in reality it's just Netflix doing bad market research.
Poor example of what "People United" can do....
"There are no pricing changes (we’re done with that!)."(NETFLIX)
Netflix in their apology letter sent out to all members, said they are done with raising prices.. and all other changes was also cancelled.
I Have both Apology Letters Netflix sent out to all the members, Which Show's what people united can do. When a million subscribers cancel their subscriptions, that forced Netflix to send out their apology to their members. And return to the regular monthly Price for subscribers. People United can bring about changes... WE ARE THE 99%.
That's the power of the people in the Market. Awesome. Government didn't have to tell them squat the consumer did. That is were the real power is supposed to be. It can only be maximized in a fully free market so that not only can consumers vote with their dollars but we can rise up into competition with the established corporations.
