His points were that from what he saw on the television the preoccupied group did not indicate a solid idea for the protest. Then he said it was interesting how these preoccupied protesters were able to just camp out without working etc. I thought they were valid questions / observations.rhubroma said:The entire system is controlled by the financial capitalists. They own the corporate mass media too. It's all propaganda. The state of the US mass media these days is rather deplorable in informing people about the actual gravity of the situation - and it isn't the protesters!
What don't you get about how outrageously scandalous the financial practices of Wall Street and the stock markets are? What don't you get about hedge funds and financial speculation playing with the pocket books of entire states like Greece? What don't you get about the debt of private wealth being socialized and the wealth of society being privatized? What don't you get about the banks owning everything? Or that democracy itself has become something which can be bought politically, not earned by suffrage? What don't you get about a finance that has witnessed gargantuan wealth concentrated in ever fewer hands, while workers salaries have been stagnant since the 70's? What don't you get about mass credit, offered by these same banks, being foisted upon the middle class to provide the impetus for a consumer economy that otherwise would be dead to make up for low wages, with interest to boot?
Is your question mere intractableness or do these things truly escape you? I'm beginning to wonder if some are just that effen thick, or so conservative and moralistic in their world view, as to actually be fearful and scandalized by the OWS protesters, which seems to be the case, rather than what's really to be fearful of and scandalized by?
Pardon me for saying it so baldly, but I have run into your kind before. And be careful about using the word idiot in your assessment of others, before you have first seriously contemplated all the questions posed above.
Hey rhubroma if he KNOW what it is that has them all preoccupied then why don’t you take off from your job and get over to wall street and let the media know these important points that you was so clearly able to define to ACF.
