Since I never know what to believe anymore about much of anything, I have reserved judgement about the OWS movement, at least about its origins. I
have to applaud those willing enough to stand up and go out there no matter what there convictions may be; there are certainly enough good reasons for
every American to have a reason to stand up and speak up.
I laugh at people that scoff at the participants of OWS and ramble on about "preparing and waiting for the right time..." to begin some sort of
rebellion. It's like a grossly obese person saying, "Well, when I reach 600 pounds I'll do something about my weight!" It is far easier to keep
up, rather than catch up...and this country has over a hundred years of catching up to do.
A movement needs leadership, and clear-cut and a well defined direction with a goal, things that OWS does not really have on any level. I believe that
most (not all) ordinary people attending the protests probably have good intentions, though you may be hard pressed to find any two people to agree on
why they are there in the first place. Unfortunately, there aren't just "ordinary people" out there on the streets.
It is my belief that what we are now witnessing has become an experiment. A good sheep dog can herd together a flock scattered far and wide; this
movement is a free for all and the flock will go to the strongest dog...a bunch of traumatized, pissed off, disillusioned people with no
direction...what they are really looking for is guidance and that is what they are going to get...how ironic the ending turns out to be is anyone's
guess, but I'm sure it will be funny if it just wasn't so damn sad.
I think those people speaking out the strongest against the OWS movement are those that are most embarrassed by the sad state of this nation, and just
how impotent the voice of the American people has become against the Leviathan. We see a bunch of misguided, under-educated, uncomprehending people
that, whether we like it or not, represent us in some way---out there looking like a flock of lost sheep. Our TRUTH as a nation is so befuddled by
opinion and lack of understanding, the rift between people is so far and wide, and I believe calculatedly so, that no citizen can possibly comprehend
the complexities of what has really happened to this country...unless of course you want to argue that it is fundamentally the same.
I'm not scoffing, I'm not laughing, and I damn sure don't believe a F ing thing I see, or hear, or read. In my gut I know only one thing; it always
changes...but if HUMANS have anything to do with it, it'll just get more complex, less rational, and one day closer to death...I pray there is a
God...we need one.
