Thank you for this discussion. Yes we must take the next step to pressure our corporations and governments to act for the greater good of society, and to educate ourselves on issues of inequality and justice.

This movement exploded on the scene. I follow politics and it caught me unawares. Then again, I only missed it for a minute. I won't lock onto everything that my radar picks up until I see some sign that it's important. Or unless I'm just curious. Curiousity, and a spirit of adventure and exploration, are positives in my view.

Because I've been following politics for some time, none of this OWS is strange to me. Indeed, Following politics, the way I do, has taught me all of this. The details sometimes evade me because I don't have a foundation of formal education to help me digest everything, but anyone can grasp the basics here. Especially anyone robbed by the capitalist system, which turns out to be most of us, when we think about it. By design - the establishment's design - we are not supposed to think about it.

Some time ago, an Egyptian revolutionary named Nozomi Hayase made the point that we won't have a global revolution until it's a wikileaks revolution. He certainly didn't mean a global revolution benefitting elites. That's already taken place. He simply recognized that Wikileaks was both global and bereft of influence by and for corporations. So he made two points. No one is free until everyone is free, for one thing. And, secondly, Those needing to be freed are the majority. And I'm sure that, as a rational human being, Nozomi envisions a world in which not only is the majority free, but it consists of everyone, so that there is 'no' exploited majority or minority. In other words It's about wiping out the minority - in a positive sense. It will be transformed. Individuals who don't want to get with the program will be seen for what they are, namely as criminals, and treated accordingly.

At least I think that's what he was saying.

Corporatocracy must end. The rule of corporations, and the minority they represent, must end. Democracy will prevail, but adjustments won't stop with the demise of corporatocracy and the accompanying illusion embraced by it's victims that capitalism is the true religion and corporations are holy and that's the end of history.
