The average American isn't anti-capitalism, what they are however is tired of the wealthiest deciding policy. OWS is the result of Americans finally
realizing the system has been gamed against them. From our education to our healthcare system it has all been designed to transfer wealth from the
bottom to the top. These aren't just some random hippie freaks that want something for nothing, these are people that have looked around and realized
something is severely broken.
It is nothing new we realized it in 2008, we as a people just decided to be patient to see what the new President was going to do about it. Now we are
3 years in and it has become clear that the Government refuses to do anything about it. It has become clear that the Government is unable and
unwilling to act unless there is a civil uprising, and we are starting to see that form. People are tired of the American lie, they are tired of a
Government that grants personhood to corporations without requiring the social and moral obligations that go with it. The top 1% of this nation have
but one goal to stay in the top 1%, the remaining 99% have one goal to find a way to make it to the top 1%. These two goals are diametrically opposite
to each other and the top 1% have the means and the will to prevent those capable of rising to their ranks and preserving their status.
This is class warfare. The problem is that most do not realize that the war has been on since the labor movement began. The working class thought the
war was over over,but it wasn't the fight just took a different form. Instead of using brute force to keep the working class down, they started using
their wealth to do it by purchasing politicians to set trade policy.
