Occupy's 2nd Anniversary: Let's Never Forget That We're the Majority, 99 to 1

The famed 99% meme that the movement blazed into mainstream consciousness still lives on in the mass mind, like a festering infected thorn in the side of Goliath.

Couldn’t help but chuckle when  this headline flashed across my consciousness:

“Why doesn’t NSA spy on Wall Street?

The government claims NSA conducts surveillance to avert financial crises. Seems like they have the wrong suspects…. [Director of National Intelligence James] Clapper insisted: ‘It is not a secret that the Intelligence Community collects information about economic and financial matters, and terrorist financing. We collect this information for many important reasons: for one, it could provide the United States and our allies early warning of international financial crises which could negatively impact the global economy.’”

Hmm… smells like a recipe for insider trading. And where oh where was this “early warning” of a financial crisis five years ago? Great job of limiting the “negative impact” of that one. Also gotta love that Stasi “Security” Czar Clapper is talking about collecting information about “terrorist financing.” Terrorist financing? Isn’t that the Federal Reserve’s mandate? Could swear I saw that written in their secret unwritten bylaws. In collusion with Wall Street, the CIA is the biggest terrorist financing operation to ever exist. The “freedom protecting” NSA should look into that. If the NSA was truly concerned about protecting Americans, surely they would be watching the global banking cartel and their incestuous co-conspirators at the CIA. All too rare truth be told, the NSA doesn’t care about protecting freedom or the Constitution. Why would they? Clearly, they are fascists.

Whoa, wait, okay; hold on a minute here… Sorry to hit you with all these non-politically correct, naked emperor-esque harsh truths. This is all far too much for the propagandized mind to handle. Let’s just dismiss this and call all of it over-the-top rhetoric, if livin’ in denial makes you feel better. If denial is your gig, please forgive my indiscretions. I tend to get a little worked up when an unaccountable secret organization torches the Constitution on a daily basis, turns the world into a never-ending war zone, aids and abets the theft of trillions of dollars and sets our future on fire.

Alright, off on a tangent again. Trying to escape the reservation has its consequences, so I’ll pump the brakes now… Full stop.

Wait, no, no. Why should I stop?

Why do we let all of this happen?

It’s a splinter in my mind…

Aren’t the consequences of doing nothing much more severe than the consequences of escaping this mental plantation and exiting this ever-quickening one-way trip down an unsustainable and disastrous path? Our governmental, economic and legal systems are overrun with corruption. Poverty is spreading like malignant cancer. As our schools are crumbling, our jails are overflowing. Our healthcare system is a crime against humanity. Our food supply is dangerously unhealthy. The environment is toxic and getting more chaotic, as extreme weather and destructive storms are now the norm. We are in the midst of the Sixth Great Extinction. Syria is a tinderbox and the military industrial complex is raging out of control, making World War III now a possibility.

WHAT ARE WE DOING?

It’s Time to Evolve Society

There are presently effective commonsense solutions to these problems. The shortsighted, greed-addicted forces that have paid off both of the dominant political parties, the judicial system and the mainstream media are holding innovative and needed solutions back. The only thing we lack is the political will. People with opinions across the political spectrum know that we need to end this blatant corruption of our ruling systems. Anyone paying attention knows this. What we need now is a wave of actions and events to make commonsense common-ground solutions reach a critical mass.
