The way I figure it, people have been protesting for all sorts of "free" fixes to society. Things that they feel they are owed or deserve... Why not work to own and earn these fixes?
Here is what I am assuming: 1) the 99% represent about 300 million Americans. 2) Most everyone has a cell phone, TV(cable) or some form of cost that amounts to about $80 per month. 3) Everyone has the opportunity to own part of the american economy by purchasing shares of public companies
If the 99% started to spend a mere $500 a year to buy up the shares of public companies (you only need 51% to control it), you could quickly own every company in America. When you own or control a company, you can enforce rules like Fair/equitable profit sharing, environmentalism etc. The 99% could buy their purchases from said company to help keep the revolution going.
Why do the 99% demand to be given (via political means) instead of to work (ie a job and ownership) for the change?
Would this work the way I am assuming?
