Occupy Movement?

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

I am not generally a TV watcher. I keep movies on for noise, I gave up watching the news when 20 minutes into a broadcast I realized they just told me about 8 dead people in my city. No weather, good news, politics - just 8 souls removed violently from this world. Who needs that sort of emotional beat down?

Yesterday was the first I've heard of the Occupy movement. Call me a supporter although I think they need to get a central message out because for now the media is treating this like a circus. They keep asking "what is the message?" and "what are you protesting?"

The difference between what's going on here and the Arab Spring (by the way whomever called this the American Autumn - love it) is that they had a singular solitary message and it was clear. I'm all but pretty sure the message that the 99% need to give is that we can live without their consumer goods but can they live without us buying them?

The answer is to stop giving money to corporate America for a bit and see if they get the message. The protestors out there with their high end electronics, designer clothing, buying food from chain restaurants - there is no message in that. STOP BUYING CONSUMER GOODS. Barter with friends/ neighbors/ local farmers for what you need. If the 99% trade our goods amongst ourselves we can survive, thrive AND send a message that we do not want our lives to be financially controlled anymore by the 1% of wealth.

So there you have my view of what I feel needs to happen, I hope this movement grows in strength and clarity and if it's still going when I need to leave here I will be heading to add my voice to the masses in person rather than from my little trailer.

I have added links to the two sites that so far seem to contain the most information to the sidebar.

WE HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE THE US DOLLAR WORTHLESS BY NOT USING IT ANYMORE! THIS WILL BRING EQUALITY TO ALL.
