The real problem is that peaceful protest accomplishes nothing. Nothing short of revolution is going to change the system. As long as the protests remain peaceful, the elite have nothing to worry about. The national elections are rigged, they control the laws and the global financial system and the western militaries. Why would they care about what you or I have to say? The only way to accomplish real change would be to physically remove them from power and I highly doubt that they would go peacefully.
I patiently await the revolution to begin.

We have to grow our own food and make our own electricity. My family is trying to make this happen right in the middle of our neighborhood. We hope to grow all of our food next year with a surplus to give away. There are many ways a person can generate their own electricity around the home. You could charge an electric vehicle with a bike powered, permanent magnet motor for instance. Point being YOU have to take steps. Otherwise you have to work for some douche just to pay some douche. So basically the whole system needs to be rid of douches .

it's bs and you are an idiot for saying we are rich. by comparison to others we are but why should we get knocked down lower when the ones who exploit us remain untouchable yet taking them down a few notches would benefit EVERYONE.

Very good idea, unfortunately, none of those people are actually protesting those things.. if they were they'd be:
1. Getting jobs
2. Not voting for Obama
3. Quit coveting the possessions of others
4. Quit voting for Teachers Unions and the Department of Education
5. Voting for Ron Paul
6. Quit supporting corporate America (cough cough Apple) and chasing greed...
Oh wait - you can't be against the rich and "inequality" if you're also against "greed"... it's all relative.

What am I doing? I chose "none of the above". I dropped out of the game. I refuse to play by their rigged rules anymore. There is plenty of "work", you don't need a "job" to support yourself. Find out what people need, whether product or service, and provide it at a reasonable price. I have not had a "job" in 4 years. I don't miss it.
