"James Fetzer interviewed Carl Herman on his radio show and podcast, 'The Real Deal', to walk Americans through the central arguments of Occupy:

  • The 1% “leadership” in politics, banking, and corporate media commit crimes centering in war and money, and then lie about them;

  • These crimes annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions of the 99%’s dollars. The appropriate response is arrest of those committing the most egregious crimes a nation can commit;

  • The arrest of the war-murdering, looting, and lying criminals opens unprecedented opportunity for policies to uplift all Earth’s inhabitants."

The 2-hour podcast is here (you can fast-forward past the Beatles music covering the local advertisements):

From the article:

"Occupy will succeed because Americans are recognizing central factual claims are easily verified as objective data."

This is central and explains why so many trolls are here. It is quite worrisome to reactionaries.

Thanks GS for another positive post.
