I'm sorry but I'd be remiss if I didn't clarify on this point...

Firstly, you are SEVERELY simplifying "democracy".
DEMOCRACY- Wiki


Second, the specific type of democracy to which you are referring is DIRECT democracy, and the issue of "tyranny of the majority"
(personally, I too, am opposed to DIRECT democracy)


Having read many of your recent posts on this, and several other threads,
I believe that your heart is in the right place and I appreciate your passion.

Just make sure you elaborate and that you have your facts straight.
For all of our sakes.

Now that woman over at Godlikeproductions is running a smear campaign against the Occupy movement. Saying they're all hippy scum yet you wouldn't think that of the folk at her forums, would you...


Anyway, I just enjoyed reading this favorable article from the British perspective (link below). Keep on Occupying!

I was banned permanently from GLP over disagreeing with trinity over OWS , it must be very important agenda for CIA, GOV and banks for OWS to be portrayed as such.

really? Do you believe the stuff you're slinging or do you know it is B.S.?

I feel bad for you, because you either are working for the 1% or you are fooled.

You are setting yourself up for a harsh reality...that is unless the OWS movement can start cracking the foundation soon.

You are not one of the 1%, you will never be part of the 1%. No matter how hard you work or how many of the other 99% you step on for them. You are a peasant like those people in NYC and the rest of us.

You are scared and selfish. You should put down your selfish hate and join your people, the 99%. Otherwise, we will all see you across the line that will inevitably be drawn. 99% vs. 1%....I like our odds.

This is why the good people who are among the tea party movement need to leave it and start a conservative wing of the OWS movement.

When Glenn Beck and Fox news back you, and CNN, NBC accept you, than you are probably a black ops campaign.

All I know is the media does everything to dismiss the OWS and Ron Paul. That should be telling to most Americans. It is time for us to stop slinging red vs. blue crap and realize we are on the same team. Ron Paul and OWS are practically on the same page when it comes to their main grievances. The differences between the two are healthy debates any democratic-republic should have.

I am a progressive to the left, but I am probably voting for Paul, knowing my democratic congresswoman will back him against the banks and the fed, but also help temper the parts where I feel he is too conservative.

I am done voting for a party, I am voting for people who will cut out the cancers. I know I can do that with a mix of conservatives and liberals.

I wish others would take this approach as well.

you are damn right about voting for an idea not a movement , i think a lot of people are working to discredit ows sometime because that their job some other because they are following mass media trend .
If you go on liveleak you will see a lot of propaganda against ows , some of those guy are probably fake personna financed by black budget ,both way they fail so hard .
Some people rather mind their own business their own life , than to help other and see the real truth the bigger picture , i guess those people are going for a bumpy ride.

I'm not American but I like your approach - if I was I couldn't vote for Paul due to his conservative view on abortion stem cell etc - but as you say tempered by someone else - could work.

You people who are complaining about the possibility of things getting violent ....... I have a question for you.

Exactly how far do you think the American Revolution would have gotten if there had been no bloodshed?

Do you think the King of England would have changed his ways with peaceful protests and politely written requests?

I think not.

We the people have tried politely asking and writing our politicians. We have voted new people into office who have promised to change things but then did the same old, same old.

The politicians will not listen to the people until the politicians fear for their very lives.

The Revolution has began.

And it may not be televised, but it'll be on YouTube


I'm so happy this is finally happening in the United States.

So the protesters are rushing barricades counter a lawful order by police for the safety of everyone(not just the protesters) and when the cops have to respond with force to keep them under control it will be called police brutality.



OWS can kiss my ass.


Yes, I'm totally sure it's "for their own safety".


I don't know if you're being clueless intentionally or not.

But I'm sure you follow what you're told, regardless of whether you have the common sense to do what you feel is right or not.

True definition of "sheeple" here.

It's pretty amazing that Anyone can actually sit down and watch that network.

On a second note, its funny how the Right-winger 1%'ers blood IS BOILING right now about We The People and OUR MOVEMENT!!


OWS = 99%.

99%>1%.

Sorry 1%'ers, you are bruised, battered, and humiliated!!

This is NO WHERE NEAR DONE!!! HOORAY!!



What is even funnier is how some people still think it's a politically-motivated event, and still feel compelled to attack a political party that they see as the "enemy". Sorry to kick your sack, but most people are on board with this one, not just useless pot heads like yourself who think it's all about them.

Open your eyes, child. When this is all over with, socialism will have no place in this country. You know why? You socialist sheep don't "believe" in guns, and the people with the guns will decide what happens next.

Hooray!

The police are the violent ones! They SHOULD be charged with police brutality, but they won't be. It's just that sort of corruption that OWS is standing up against. Americans are supposed to defend each others' freedoms. The police are nothing more than enforcers for the corporations.

Marxism IS atheist, and Marx and Engels said that the "State will wither away".

Here is Lenin on Engels...


Thirdly, in speaking of the state “withering away", and the even more graphic and colorful “dying down of itself", Engels refers quite clearly and definitely to the period after “the state has taken possession of the means of production in the name of the whole of society", that is, after the socialist revolution. We all know that the political form of the “state” at that time is the most complete democracy.

www.marxists.org...

Ironically, here is what Schumpeter said about Capitalism


Schumpeter's theory is that the success of capitalism will lead to a form of corporatism and a fostering of values hostile to capitalism, especially among intellectuals. The intellectual and social climate needed to allow entrepreneurship to thrive will not exist in advanced capitalism; it will be replaced by socialism in some form. There will not be a revolution, but merely a trend in parliaments to elect social democratic parties of one stripe or another. He argued that capitalism's collapse from within will come about as democratic majorities vote for the creation of a welfare state and place restrictions upon entrepreneurship that will burden and eventually destroy the capitalist structure.


The book also introduced the term 'creative destruction' to describe innovative entry by entrepreneurs was the force that sustained long-term economic growth, even as it destroyed the value of established companies that enjoyed some degree of monopoly power. Because of the significant barriers to entry that monopolies enjoyed, new entrants would have to be radically different: ensuring fundamental improvement was achieved, not a mere difference of packaging. The threat of market entry would keep monopolists and oligopolists' disciplined and competitive, ensuring they invest their profits in new products and ideas. Schumpeter believed that it was this innovative quality that made capitalism the best economic system.[2]
