OP, that is one of the best posts I've ever read. It sums up everything I've been thinking. All I can really add is that I think OWS is something
that has to be done. When it fails, people might see how truly screwed they are. I suspect TPTB wil try and keep the occupy movemnt in a holding
pattern for as long as possible, but eventually people will see how inneffective it really is against, as you said, people who print up their own
I hate to say this, but passifists don't get results.They have oscar winning blockbuster movies made about them, glorifying them and schooling us in
their way. but who makes these movies?
Unfortunately there's going to have to be violence. As Thomas Jefferson said, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the
blood of patriots and tyrants."
The Irish politician Daniel O Connell, who was famed for his abhorrence of violence and passifist ways, once said, "The altar of liberty totters
when it is cemented only[ with blood"
. His use of the word "only" implies that even he believed blood was neccessary.Two great men, very
different in many ways, but finding a common truth amidst what is probably their biggest difference.
I believe the best way to avoid the worst kind of violence is the same way to avoid being slaves for evermore. We must smash the system.
As OP says, we are addicted to the system we despise.It is like crack. I've never met a crackhead that didn't want to kick their habit. I have only
ever known one who managed it, but it can be done.Addiction can be broken, but often a shock to the system is needed.The best shock is to cut the
supply.Shoot the suppliers (the guys at the top, not the dealer down the street), and shoot anyone who fills their shoes.
Violence needs to be directed at the source of the problem. Rioting achieves even less than peaceful protest. You want to Occupy Wall St? Then go in
there, into the building, and smash up the entire place.Rip it apart.Go to Capitol Hill smash it up.Knock that obelisk.Destroy anything that has to do
with the ruling of the world we are trying to leave behind.
Romans, don't wreck your own streets and your neighbours homes and cars.You will be paying for that in hiked insurance premiums and taxes down the
line.Torch the vatican instead.Trash it's idols, it's obelisk and it's buildings, which are monuments to human misery (though the library might be
worth emptying). Gut that place. Find Mr Burlesquetony and do to him what you did to Mussolini.Burn banks and insurance offices.Do all this in unison
and with love in your hearts. Yes I am advocating a violent campaign of vandalism, propelled by love for one another.I know that's too much of a
contradiction for some but so be it.
Londoners, occupy the City of London, that square mile of evil.Tear it down. How many of your people must die on foreign battlegrounds before you say
"No More". Fight one last war and let it be against those who have exploited you and so many other peoples around the world.
Burn the palaces,dispossess Saxe Coburgs of their massive land holdings, their yachts.End their tenure.Slaughter them.Cut the head off the snake.Rout
their cousins in Denmark, Monaco, Spain etc.Why should you bow and curtsey to these parasites? Do you believe they are better than you?
What scares me, particularly here in the US, is that while OWS grinds on with no real results, the knives are being sharpened.One of my friends has
already sold up and left here for southern Ohio to train with a militia group. I'm not even sure if these guys have any agenda other than violence
and it seems each group is banging a different drum.I know for a fact that certain groups are motivated by fandamentalist christianity and extreme
racism and it scares me to think of such groups running amock.
We all know what the problem is..We all know who is responsible. We are simply afraid of killing the vile beast from which we have been suckled.The
human race is a battered wife that keeps going back for more, aone who will even attack those who try to help her out of it.
