Did Obama plan #OccupyWallStreet 10 years ago?

(2:25)"I'm not optomistic about bringing about major redistributive change through the courts, the institution just isn't structured that way"

So here we have Obama talking about how hard it is to bring about "redistributive change" through the government

(1:28)"One of the tragedies of the Civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court focused, I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change"

And here he talks about the "change" having to come through the people demanding it. Sort of like Occupy Wall Street...?

Some quotes from a 2009 Obama speech to the U.N.;

" I come before you humbled by the responsibility that the American people have placed upon me, mindful of the enormous challenges of our moment in history, and determined to act boldly and collectively on behalf of justice and prosperity at home and abroad."

"But they are also rooted in hope -- the hope that real change is possible, and the hope that America will be a leader in bringing about such change."

So this is a global vision, with America leading it. But how?

"No world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will succeed."

Like the U.S.?

"Growth will not be sustained or shared unless all nations embrace their responsibilities. And that means that wealthy nations must open their markets to more goods and extend a hand to those with less, while reforming international institutions to give more nations a greater voice."

So he makes it pretty clear here that the developed countries should redistribute their wealth to emerging economies

"The United States stands ready to begin a new chapter of international cooperation -- one that recognizes the rights and responsibilities of all nations."

It's obviously not just one man behind this, but Obama has been very open about being a total socialist and wanting redistribution of wealth. The question is on what scale does he(they) want this? Redistribute the wealth from the 1% in America to everyone else in the U.S.? Or redistribute from all the developed "imperialist" countries to emerging economies?

It wouldn't surprise me, these people didn't just crawl out of the woodwork yesterday, this is years of propaganda and indoctrination.
