I have been following the Occupy Wall Street progress over the last few weeks like many.
It has been pointed out by people more in the know than I that this protest is different from all the others whereby people protested and went home, however this time they’re not.
I have read many reports, newspapers, seen YouTube clips, heard speeches, etc and have come to the conclusion that the people who criticise the OWS are the ones that myopically are in the wrong. They are, or they support the 1%.
One of the main criticisms is that the leaderless OWS doesn’t have an agenda, a list of demands. I find this quite correct; they don’t need a list of demands, a specified agenda to say that something (in this case many things) are seriously wrong.
The 1%, inc government, inc president, inc etc… know what is wrong. They don’t need a bloody agenda to tell them, they know already, and have known for decades.
OWS is the people simply saying “Fix it!”
The unwritten, unsaid rider is, “Because, if you don’t we will!”
And I do believe the time has come that OWS will; and it won’t be pretty.
The 1% at fault, inc et al, should be quaking in their boots. They should be frothing at bung, their sphincters should be quivering 90 to the minute and they should be sweating as the noose tightens.
Because this is not going to ‘go away.’ The 1% think they are bullet proof because they own the government and the government will be the cavalry that wade in to save the day. But when push comes to shove, the 99% are greater than all the forces the government can muster. Oh, they will try, it will be bloody, but necks will be stretched until the last of the 1% piss their pants on the scaffold of justice.
This is not just America, this is becoming global. In fact this didn’t even start in America, this OWS started in Tunisia and Egypt as the Arab Spring and spread. Even here in Brazil 16 capital cities saw mass protests over corruption this weekend, are we also seeing the beginning of a Latin Spring?
The people do not need to announce an agenda nor a list of demands. The people who are in the wrong already know what’s wrong. The people who can fix it, already know how to fix it. But the big question is, will they?
From what I have seen and read, the OWS is the government, they are the politicians, they are trying to rescue their lot as best they can, because the elected morons are too busy squabbling over their seats to worry about the people.
My view of the global political arena is that it can be compared to a circus… why? Because it’s full of freakin’ clowns!
