Subject: RE: BS: Occupy Wall Street; The 99%
OWS is over, in the UK anyway, and I suspect in the US as well.
The media have tired of it...yesterdays news.
As I said right at the beginning, the only way change can be effected is to tackle the problem at the roots...it is systemic, there are still too many with a stake in the system, and 100% of us contributed to our current financial situation.
How many of us were involved in property sales? petty tax fiddling,
abuse of public services(UK), Mrs Thatcher and Ronald Reagan made us all capitalists ...and we loved it!
Now capitalism has been exposed and we have not the balls to admit it even to ourselves.
Until we understand the problem....we can never find the answer, OWS is simply a distraction, something to make us feel better about ourselves.....but we are stil guilty.
