This has already degenerated and we are'nt even past page 1! One thing I would like to remind people about. The protests are worldwide not just US.
So when US folks come out with the usual US centric problems and solutions (either side of the argument) they forget the bigger picture.
We are in a global economy and it is failing for the vast majority of people of the world. It's all about too few people with too much wealth and
power, even the arab spring is all about that, just more extreme due to governments being dictatorships.
You do bring up an important and relevant point. OWS is not just happening within US centric circles, but on a GLOBAL level, which is a truth, reality
and something every human on Earth can watch and see.
OWS started in US, based upon the 99% sufferings, and thousands of americans with their free will and ruled by their conscience, went full swing into
OWS, and are not simply armchair critics unlike the anti-OWS whom right now are self centredly justifying their own pathetic whinny actions in comfort
and lamblasting these courageous man and women braving the extreme cold and bitter conditions to get the 99%'s voices heard.
These folks in OWS acknowledges there are problems and errors in the current system to be resolve within the american nation, in order to achieve the
aims that every HUMAN on Earth seek for - peace, justice, equality, shared prosperity, progress and freedom.
But they do not impose their will upon other nations, unlike the 1% whom regularly does.
However, should other fellow human brothers and sisters around the world, regardless if african goatherder, muslim scholar, buddhist priest, catholilc
student, garage mechanic, etc, etc, despite every conceivable differences devised by selfish men whom sought to divide us, can relate to such aims, is
FULLY WELCOME to make a stand with OWS but only upon their own free will and not forced, just as OWS stands alongside the courageous fellow human
brother and sisters in arab spring to get their freedom and brave worse circumstances in blood and lives lost than others.
What America is today was not the work of one man alone, nor corporations or principalities, but the work of untold millions whom left the legacy of
honest labour and conscience to every generations. They were not of noble blood, only simple folks like you and me, to build a better society and
world for every human whom is equal to another. It is not only in the sacred US Constitution that americans derived such truths.
It lays also in the greatest monument of our times - the awe inspiring Statue of Liberty, not an idol but only a symbol of mankind's freedom from
tyranny, so relevant even in this modern age, of common masses comming together to create a better world for all mankind, as our forefathers had done,
to progress, evolve, freely but with responsibilities, and espacially to leave NONE behind. This is the 99%.
Whomever you are, and wherever you are, tyrants and elites alike whom had discarded you and left you to rot, you are one of us when you share our aims
and rebuild a better world today, if not for ourselves, it will be for the innocent next generations, this time for the world, the very model our
forefathers from all over the world came to USA to create for us all today...
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me.
I lift my lamp beside the golden door."
