I guess that you've noticed that things have been very quiet on my website. That's because many things that I can't discuss at the present time are in the works. In addition, I have been working on a very interesting article that I will be posting late tomorrow afternoon in the Feature Articles section of this website. See you then.
For just about our whole lives, we've been conditioned to think in terms of us vs. them. If it wasn't for those nasty people in THAT country, life would be a dream. If it wasn't for those people not practicing the one TRUE religion, the world would be a better place. If it wasn't for those poor people sponging off the rest of us hard-working taxpayers, taxes would be lower. If it wasn't for those bolshevik socialists who support “big” government and it's regulations, “free” enterprise would flourish and provide jobs for all of us.
As you can see, us vs. them reduces our life experiences and prejudices to unrealistic abstractions. Us vs. them is most deceptive when it refers to BOTH political parties in our “two” party system. After all, we've been conditioned to believe that the Republican party is the party of the rich, but the Democratic party is the working person's party. If that were really the case:
As you can see, the “two” party system is little more than a de facto game of good cop/bad cop.
As members and supporters of the Occupy movement, we have two choices, we can squander our efforts and dedication on an existing party or we can have REAL change by starting our own party, let's make the right choice.
Now that Occupy Wall Street has captured the imagination of the bottom 99% everywhere and become a movement of global stature, I'd like to know what you think of the movement. Your opinion matters, please take this poll.
Now that Occupy Wall Street has captured the world's imagination, it's a good bet that the party of "change" would love to turn it into a vote getting machine. To hear why that's never going to happen, visit my Listen Here! page.
What's next now that Occupy Wall Street is so big that the mainstream media can't intentionally ignore it? Visit my Listen Here! page for a suggestion that could get almost every ninety-eight percenter in!
