I don't think OWS is a 'smoke screen'. I don't think it has been organized by the CIA either. For one thing, it's international. Also, it hasn't
done anything to play into the government's hands. It's been a peaceful protest. If it had erupted into violence, then the Government would have the
justification they need to crack down with martial law.
I think the media reaction to OWS is the 'smoke screen', quite literally. They have been painting OWS as a 'failure' since they refused to frame
themselves into a single issue. However, that is precisely why and how OWS did NOT fail. It could not fail, since it didn't have a unified objective.
You need to have a clear goal before you can fail.
The objective of the Occupy movement was not to stay in the camps forever. The purpose of the tents was to get noticed, which they did. Also, to meet
and discuss with other like-minded protesters, which they did. Also, the point was to bring international attention to the fact that our Governments
can no longer use rhetorical argument against us, they have to resort to using force. The NYPD was using a militarized Police force to violate the
first amendment rights of the protestors, just for breaking a by-law. Their edifice is beginning to crumble.
The Ancient Greek philosopher Socrates was condemned to death by the city of Athens for corrupting the youth of Athens, by telling them their Gods
were false. As he was given the cup of hemlock to drink, he said "The fact that you had to resort to force to silence me means that I am right."
So it is with the Occupiers, in Liberty square, in Egypt and around the world. The tyrants must resort to using force because the people no longer
believe in their fraud. When the Police and the military stop obeying orders to shoot their own unarmed, peaceful people, the regime will crumble.
