For a decade I've been writing about the bad stuff -- all over the globe. After researching hundreds of stories I've seen a common thread. All of the man-made problems like poverty, sickness and misery, are the end result of promoting corporate interests over human interests. Yes, it's greed, but it's a weird, human-less greed. Here's what I mean.
Corporations are made of people, often good and moral people. But the corporation operates on a charter, or mission statement, that perpetuates the existence of the corporation through maximizing profits (and support) of its shareholders. It grows, adapts and forms relationships with other corporations and politicians -- it's almost alive! But the greed of the corporation is intrinsic -- built in -- to the corporation's operating system. It's not personal -- not human.
Evil is illusive, often faceless. That's how it maintains its power. That's how 1% can control the destiny of the 99%.
Asked what they want, the participants in the October 15th occupy wallstreet movement are quick to be vague. They preference any comment on social or political change with "this is my own personal opinion..." In fact there is no list of demands or definitive course for the global protests that broke out in 900+ cities. So what holds this diverse group of protesters together? It's what they are against.
Here are some videos to get you up to speed on this phenomenon...
Talk the talk... walk the walk
Here's the official "occupy wall street" website:
And now the bad news...
In a recent article, Red October by A.T. Ott (10,21,2011) it was revealed that ADBUSTERS, who originated and admittedly orchestrate the Occupy Wall Street protests, was initially formed with a $185,000 grant from a non-profit organization in San Francisco CA called "Tides Center". OWS financial needs are paid by "Tides" with a legal "straw man entity" called "ADBUSTERS".
Millions of dollars have been donated to "Tides" from an entity called the "Open Society", which is a wholly owned foundation of Mr. George Soros!
George Soros' pet project is to implement a 1% "transaction tax" (called a Tobin Tax) on all stock and bond buys and sales. This money would supposedly be used to benefit society and so is not popular with the corporate or business community. One wonders why it is something that Soros would want also.
In his 2005 book, George Soros on Globalization, Soros writes in favor of the tax and discuses how to "mobilize public opinion" for it:
"The globalization of financial markets has given capital an unfair advantage over other sources of taxation, a tax on financial transactions would redress the balancethe tax ought to be extended to all markets, not just currency markets Collection has to be worldwide, including tax havens. How could it be enforced? The collecting country must be given a portion of the proceeds. To mobilize public opinion of increased international assistance, the proposal must not only show how the money will be raised but how it will be spent."
Of course, this is just a red herring. The ultimate goal is to create an organization that will monitor and collect this 1% tax from every nation on Earth -- a global central bank to go along with a global government... Yes, It's the NWO rising like The Phoenix!
OK, coincidence or what? ... here's the latest texts coming out of the public media (twitter) to OWS members:
On October 29, on the eve of the G20 Leaders Summit in France, let's the people of the world rise up and demand that our G20 leaders immediately impose a 1% #ROBINHOOD tax on all financial transactions and currency trades.
There is an agenda here, for sure. It now seems probable that the whole OWS movement was initiated with a careful plan utilizing the Problem-Reaction-Solution technique -- it's not evolving from the will of the 99% in real time. That's a frightening thought.
Organized and planned by whom and for what? The irony is that the people seek less control, not more. The stronger OWS becomes, the more they will be exploited by the very powers they oppose. That's how evil works.
Hopefully the energy and ambition of the OWS will sever ties with the people pulling the strings and feeding the cash -- the very same people that OWS and the rest of us 99% are against.
Bring in anti-colonialism, abolish debt and back taxes caused by an irresponsible man. Forgiveness for all and then? Oh no, my man, there is a price for all to pay. explore what that price is. Where does it go? Hummmm well lets look at some facts. Homeowners across the fruited plane ran up some credit card debt. Then homeowner takes advantage of the magic of his home being worth more money so he exercises his right to refi. and pay off credit cards once and for all. then he ends up banging up more credit cards because he is offered 0 interest credit cards and its like free money. soon the has reached max limits on his credit and low and behold his mome is worth more money and like magic he can now get 125% of the value of his home if he bets on an even brighter future with an ARM loan and swears to cut ties with credit cards with a yet again clean slate. Soon the house of cards lending practice falls and so does the value of said home. He sees that he now can buy the home next door at a fraction if he lets his home go in a repo. He looses his job because bank house of cards has fallen and no longer is able own a home. Now he has to pay rent and get used to living on a lot less. All the while he has a facebook page and is seeing the Arab Spring movement. Soon he is seeing an uprising in his home town. promoted by the quick reaction of the internet he sees where the same people who got revolution in Arab countries are stiring a debt forgiveness based anti greed movement and sees hope that debt and past taxes will be abolished if he is heard.
does this about some up your anti government communistic approach to looking at things. We will ignore all the soviet stuff cause they fell right? You know the stuff where they just storm in on the people like yourself plotting in yet another movement cause you jump from one revolution to another and skip living in your own shit barrel ...RIGHT ???..
I agree with you on the Communism idea... but the 99% movement is not about ANY "-ism" right now. It is something new and I can understand why so many people -- especially the media -- cannot get their heads around it. With some levity it reminds me of the problem my Dad had when I grew my hair like a girl back in the 70s. Some ideas are new and slow to replace the old. The idea of a "movement" that is anti-government really doesn't fit this current model. Neither does it fit our idea of "democracy."
There are many problems in the world that are man made. There really is a common thread -- even deeper than the corporations, banks and government -- it's called "secular humanism" and is the philosophy that there is no "good" or "bad/evil" but that everything is relative to the context in which it is judges. THE END JUSTIFIES THE MEANS, or as A. Crowley made famous, "Man has the right to live by his own law—: to live in the way that he wills to do: ... 'Do what thou will' is the whole of the law." For example, killing is evil, but then somehow in war it is not. Ripping people off is evil, but in the context of corporate shareholders (B of A comes to mind) it is "OK". You may have a goal personally and make altered judgements on right and wrong to reach it... But when this is taken to the extreme it has to be replaced by some type of common morality and ethics. I hope that's where this is going.
As you know, Obama tried to find favor with the 99% and they quickly told him that HE is part of the PROBLEM. They reject Democrats and Republicans -- as Travis Bickle told a presidential candidate in Taxi Driver: "...someone ought to just scrape it all into the fucking toilet!" The 99 don't want change! They want a total replacement.
Check this out. The last word...
Watch especially the description of "Problem-Reaction-Solution", [see 19:50 onward in video] the three step process where we are manipulated. I note that OWS also has these same three steps. Something not right here. Everyone needs to look at this.
LooK! October 24, 2011 – ROME – The Vatican called on Monday for the establishment of a "global public authority" and a "central world bank" to rule over financial institutions that have become outdated and often ineffective in dealing fairly with crises. [source].
George Soros is the puppeteer behind Obama. OWS is being manipulated by him and his ilk. “They” want globalization and a one world government, and a world bank. In the words of Tony Montana (Scarface), “First you get the money, then you get the power, then you get the woman”. In this case you get the global money through global taxation, then you get the global power, then you get the world. The national sovereignty of the United States is in jeopardy. Our freedom is at stake.
