“We are shocked by the police brutality of Dorli Rainey and the Occupy Davis protestors because they are guilty of nothing but loud political dissent. Why then should we not revisit our suspicions of the unproven assertions of the criminal tendencies of millions of men and women around the world and here in the US? We need to see through the aspersions that have been unceasingly cast by the United States government, the 1%, and their minions in order to justify their assaults, brutality, and murderous actions? It’s an Empire State of Mind, not only abroad but increasingly here at home. And the way to dismantle an Empire State of Mind is to revisit our assumptions about the targets of violence and brutality. If brutality can be leveled at American students wrongly, then we need to accept that it’s been meted out unfairly in the Wars on Iraq, Afghanistan, Terror, and Latino migrants, among others.”
So I’ve been really focused on the Occupy Wallstreet movement lately. I think It’s the most important political movement of our times and the beginning of something important. So I just thought I’d share my views on the subject.
I want equality and a good world for all of humanity. I want everyone to wake up and really see the world around them, not just the smoke and mirrors. I’m tired of big companies owning government and pushing shady agendas that just cover up even more shady agendas and conspiracies.
We are not meant to live as cattle, slaves, or living experiments. We are not stupid as they would have us believe, and we are not so divided as they would have us believe either. No one with any compassion or understanding wants people dying in wars orchestrated by people who try to keep control of this world with fear. They profit off those wars while people die, then they ruin the lives of everyone else for good measure.
We don’t need our planet’s recourses drained and our planet brutalized by fascists. We can have a clean environment and better energy. Children don’t need to be in hospitals with ailments that shouldn’t even exist, we can fix all that. But the top doesn’t profit off it, so they wont let us fix anything. They want to keep us blind and make us stupid. Because that’s how they keep control.
(They own pharmaceuticals, energy, chemicals, and so much more that they claim is just what we need how we need it.)
I keep seeing people ask things like, “Why occupy wallstreet, you think you’re doing something right?”
Well, that’s why I believe in it. I do believe we can do something. I believe we can stop the tyranny of the few and create something better for everyone.
I believe we do not have to live in a world where people can tell you who you are, what you want, or what you can and can’t have. Where they ridicule every independent idea or tear at the self respect of someone because they believe in something the media disagrees with. Where they take and hide technology that can do good while they poison our food and air and kill our planet.
Their behavior is sick, and it’s wrong, and it shouldn’t be allowed to persist.
I think that’s as good a reason as any to support the movement. At least, that’s how I see it. Everyone wants something. But in the end, we’re all people and we should all be connected in some way other than corporate greed and power.
