Knowledge only goes so far...Educating people only goes so far...walking around in circles with signs only goes so far...Occupy could/would only go so
far. The "Occupy" phase may be nearing its end but I don't think the war is "over". A new Phase will take root somehow, somewhere and in some
different way in which people ACT on the knowledge they gained.
The way I see it "Occupy" was nothing but "advertisement" to "issues" in general. People got curious about the protests and because of that they
asked questions. Because there were SOOO many different "issues" that were being brought up many people "learned something new" but as I said,
this all can only go so far...the next step it to put it to the test and "occupying" is now obsolete...
Occupy has served its purpose and the next step is "boycott" and refusal to participate in certain parts of society, until the point is made and is
made very clear. The point being nothing mysterious and very common knowledge...the "PEOPLE" make the world go around...This point can be
illustrated no better than to refuse to participate. There is no violence in saying "NO!" and that should be the first inalienable human right, to
One thing I think isn't acknowledged and brought to the forefront enough is the fact a vast majority of "LAWS" that keep people in line and
participating are in and of themselves unconstitutional and there for void.
When predominately people who never/rarely participated in the machine (OWS) try to bring the machine down with their protest the machine takes no
notice because they were never part of the machine in the first place, they were never accounted for. BUT, when people who DO participate in the
machine protest the machine, it has to take notice for there would be no machine without them...
This is the most effective approach. The people who work, pay their taxes, take out loans, pay back loans, have investment accounts and retirement
funds sitting in some obscure account at the whim of wall-street...THEY are the only ones who will bring this machine down non-violently. The
middle-working class have all the power but are afraid to death to dare exert it because they fear the lower-class. That's the only reason the
lower-class exists is to scare the hell out of the middle-class enough so they won't take risks, will fall in line, and play by the book and continue
to take it in the A$$ because hey, "at least we aren't poor"...
