The Occupy Movement Explained.

"What's the Occupy movement all about? They have no agenda except to beat drums and bitch and stink up our parks with dirty hippies."

You hear this a lot, especially from those who think that the banking system or Corporate Persons will save us; in other words, from peopel who forgot that those very institutions are the reason we're in the mess we're in today.

What the Occupy movement means to me:

1) Rein in the banks.
2) Restore power to the human beings of our country.
3) Re-establish representational equity.
And a bunch of other stuff, too, but those are the top three as I understand 'em, and what matter most to me.

Watch this great vid that clarifies the Occupy movement the best I've seen so far. Afterward, you can respond to those who question what we're all about without any hedging. Great stuff:

I wrote an essay decrying the rise of dangerous corporate power back in 2002, and I think it's even more relevant today.

Don't fear The Terminator, folks; non-human entities are already our masters. The Occupy movement seeks to dethrone them and restore humans to power. Think Londo Mollari's Drakh Keeper in Babylon 5: We all serve our masters even as they drain us of life and destroy our freedom.

No more. Occupy! Change the system!

*applause*

I just had to stop reading the comments on a letter to the editor on LJWorld.com: http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2011/oct/25/protest-support/

It was either that or go chase down IP numbers and break heads....
(no, not really, but it's peculiar, as well as telling, that the right-wing trolls are so much nastier than the left-wing trolls across the news blogs)

Oh, gag - I had to reply over there. We'll see how much trolling I enjoy from sticking my nose into the shite-heap.
