Thousands and thousands of our fellow human beings are in the streets day after day professing their demand for change. But what change exactly? They do not have one unified statement. They have many unified statements. The occupation movement is a global one. Each and every human being involved on any level knows without a doubt, that profound aspects of history are being written right now. Our descendants will read of and study this era in the history of the world and wonder what we, the people who got to live it, were like. How did we cope? Who are the hero's in this tale?
I have heard the mainstream media ask, “What are they protesting for? What is their goal?” This is complex as each and every individual involved or observing, has a different goal. Where they have been united is the desire to make their statement peacefully, regardless of their success in achieving this goal. The Occupy Movement has been stated to be a group of misfits whose only goal is disobedience. The now global Occupy Movement is far more than a group of misfits, as well as far more than a single group. They are human kind. The unfortunate aspect of aspiring for peace is that should another flawed fellow human being have opposing aspirations, you fare considered to have failed. This accusation is the most absurd of any accusations in history for the single and utterly simple reason that it has gone global. The possibility of a group of misfits with no purpose, inspiration or goal having global influence is such that the simplest minded person should chuckle at those prospects.
Yes, each location of the Occupy Movement has crime, drugs, homeless, drinking and violence; As does every American city. They have cost the local and state governments large sums of money, and not cost the large corporations that are the target of the movement a fair sum in comparison. Yet they continue to push forward with their purpose and goals. They are hit with batons, take Pepper Spray in their face, and go without food, water, bathroom facilities, shelter and any comfort of home. What seems to be lost on mainstream media is that regardless of criticism, perceived failure, and opposition, they continue because of their purpose. It is noble, necessary and urgent. They continue and will continue until we are no longer raped by corrupt politicians who were purchased by the 1%.
I do not anticipate any leader of the Occupy Movement being elected at any point. Why this is a source of confusion, confuses me. The American people have elected leaders to guide us and protect our rights, and represent us. They are elected to ensure justice and equality, and they have failed in every aspect. The American people are subjected to be ruled by greed in which our constitutional rights are disregarded for the sake of the dollar.This is proven by every peaceful protestor who is removed by police and deprived our first amendment right of Freedom to Assemble. Has everyone forgotten that the American People are not to be Ruled. That we are the rulers? Freedom, Liberty and Justice should not have a monetary value. yet it does and in so many aspects.Our Government has sold our rights. What they have forgotten is that our Rights are not and will never be theirs to sell. This is proven when any policy or law is accepted by any level of government that places more value on the dollar than it does the people it affects. These policies and laws are many, and their impact on American people is substantial.
To the 1% who are confused by the message being directed at them. Fair trade is not what is opposed. Manipulation of media to control and restrict consumer’s knowledge and beliefs, to control the outcome of elections to ensure the politicians of your choosing will be elected and work for your interests, addictive and deadly chemicals used in products to ensure continued profit does not qualify as fair trade. The ones that are the most disgusting though, are the useless additives, which only cost you more to use in products, that only serve to poison each and every one of us. I will refrain from asking why. What amounts to bribery of the politicians is not fair trade. Disregard of employee rights and unfair treatment and wages are despicable practices that if ceased, would not cost you very much. I promise you, you would still have more money than you could ever spend. But this has proven to never be enough for you. Freedom of the press was intended to protect the American people from these activities. The control of the press is malicious and callous, and can only be viewed as an attempt at obtaining dictatorship of our country, which some believe occurred some time ago. Monopolized markets and illegal foreclosure do not qualify as fair trade, and the methods that have been used to obtain these monopolies are nothing shy of mass oppression. The morals of those responsible are equivalent to those of Hitler. You have no regard for human life, the earth, or the suffering you cause. Our government has failed to protect us from you, so the American people and the Occupy Movement have taken it upon ourselves to see that you are overthrown. Your practices will no longer be accepted or tolerated from you or the Elected Officials you have purchased.
To the participants in media who knowingly participate in the manipulation and control of information provided to the public. Access to knowledge is our right; you are acting as the equivalent of Hitler’s solders. The American People know when you are lying and omitting information. You hold an equal share of the responsibility of the oppression and suffering that has been deliberately caused. For those who do not know they are tools used for these evil purposes, please get an actual education of some kind. For those who know and feel helpless, reach down and find that American spirit and spit out the truth. The latest activities of Hollywood Stars should not qualify as breaking news while mass injustice is consistently being concealed. Look beyond what is at face value and what you are told to believe and find and report the real stories. Human kind is vast and incredible. We are also powerful. Most importantly of all, tell the whole truth. Allow the people their inherent right to decide for themselves.
Regardless of any law, any force, or any consequence; I am FREE and my rights will not be sacrificed!
To some who may be offended by any aspect of this, I do apologize. To others I don’t.
