I explain this to people constantly; we want things to go peacefully, we, the movement, would like to avoid a bolshevik style knockdown knife in the night revolution, but if you won't deal with us, the peaceful ones, who can tell the masses to stand down as long as we can make any progress for the people, then you will have to deal with them on their terms, those who see any wealth as an affront to their suffering, they are indiscriminate in their rage, we would like to not see them pushed to the point where they express it.


We are not controlled opposition, we are merely attempting to mitigate and facilitate dialogue between the masters and the masses, so that our society does not have to feel the suffering once more, as it has so many times before.


occupy, unify.

The OWS crowd was useful to TPTB for a while.

It is the class war that one political party needed desperately .

It was to be used to "save " one job    B.H.O.

But then something happened, the media started reporting Rapes, Drug Use, Riots, Molotov cocktails, people shitting on the street.

This did not look good for TPTB

The one thing that is not under their control is what the occupiers actually do on a day to day basis.

So, It has been decided that,  This time for using these "useful idiots"

is finished.

You're almost right, but almost right means wrong. TPTB infiltrated the movement, instigated the bullshit that the media is reporting, and got you to buy into it. There is no question that TPTB do not want a populist uprising, and they will go to any extreme to marginalize it, with the help of the MSM, their PR machine. And now, they can use this to justify the bullshit police state tatics that are now being used. This scenario is plain to see when you look closely at who ultimately benefits by creating division within a populist movement in order to maintain the status quo. Who would that be?

The guys pulling the levers on the machine aren't stupid, they're sociopaths. Once you understand that, the rest makes perfect sense.

Smelly hippy is the wrong tact, Durden.  While many in the movement are indeed Trustafarians (that is-priveledged youth in search of meaning) and other hangers-on or simply lost souls; the implied denigration of the movement is inconsistent with Durden's normalized goals.  OWS is Anonymous; there are no leaders, no objective, no plan... purposefully.

Nothing, or at least a very few things, gets resolved in a peaceful manner. OWS is a waste of time and energy. Half the people have no clue what they are protesting for, the other half that have a idea are splintered factions and are not on the same page. The message is...there is no clear message....Just a number of people who have no clue...Civil disobedience and violence does work (i.e. Rodney King, Civil Rights, Vietnam War, etc.) however, it will not work in this case as the message is convoluted. The protestors need to get their act together or go home. The longer they stay, the more stupid they look.


The protestors need to state a clear "subject" and be prepared to riot about it. This peaceful crap sends the wrong message to the government if you are serious. If you are not willing to get violent, then your cause is not worth it so pack up and leave. Either Let the cops and the government know loudly that violence will be met with violence or you lose. The protestors outnumber the police 10:1. One violent massive surge toward the police line and they will run with their tails between their legs. You will not only occupy Wall Street, you will take it over at least temporarily. My advice though is to go home. None of the protestors are willing to sacrifice for this convoluted cause so you are wasting your time.

Not quite the outcome expected by the shower-impaired crowd:

40 - 50 Years of Talking got us here today!

But Protesting, Camping and Consensus Building Among Talking Talkers was and / or is going to fix anything?

Wake me when the fighting starts.



Koch Bro's got all jiggy wiff da tea faggers..

and the Liber-nazi's got all P.C. on the Occupy Wall Street Gang of Hippy's!


But ya know I haven't seen any PIGS fuck with Occupy Phoenix and in Baltimore the Police Union is smart enough to know their retirement funds drop $300+ Million in 3 months and $1.2 Billion on the year.

The funny part of it all is when you talk to most PIGS and ask them about the market going down and them losing hundreds of millions in cold hard cash (we won't discuss the printing Open Market Operations).. they all say the same thing.. DUUUHHHHHHHHH, which way did he go George which way did he go.

I think that some of these dumb fuck PIGs could walk into a Bank that had just been robbed.. and someone could tell them that the market was down.. that's why how the $1.2 Billion walked out of the Bank.. it evaporated because of the dumb money sentiment. LULZ!!

physical money evaporates from stocks all day every day..

Magic Even!

Occupations are a place for people to find others of a like mind and organize independently thereof or within, the physical location is important as a central hub of ideas, but the change that comes out of the movement will not be from some central leadership, but instead through people making connections with others who are prepared to act for a cause which they can agree upon a course of action for.


40-50 years of talking has awakened many folks, but many of them might not as of yet have had the opportunity to meet.


The occupations are a place for people of all types to come and discuss, so that they can determine together the course of action which they feel best addresses the problems which we all mutually face.


I agree; talk is cheap, but a free place to talk, especially in the atmosphere which has been created in our nations cities, is invaluable.

What people won't admit to themselves is that incidents like MF Global failures or Paulson Funds failures in investments are not accidental... the funds are intentionally losing the investors monies so that the investors are impoverished and the money is transferred to the GS / JPM trust.  Whether that's by directing people to fraudulent investments or by investing on their behalf, or by bankrupting a comany, all result in the same general loss by investors.  This is the other side of the collapse I always warned about... no one will be spared, so it's easy to point and laugh at the losers, until you're a loser too, and everyone that is not an oligarch will be a loser.  What, someone didn't write an article linking 1 + 1 = 2 for you?

I have no hope for humanity.  In fact, after reading the bile posted throughout this article / comments section, I've no desire to help any of you when TSHTF.

I originally supported OWS in its infancy, but after seeing the groups morph into dirty encampments filled with people who only yelled slogans and offered little in the way of true solutions, I became disenchanted with the whole thing.

The cause is still valid, so hopefully others who are more apt to provide real progress will take up the torch.  Get the unwashed pot-smokers out of the way and get some thinkers and doers in there.  Then I might give a thumbs up and provide support.

Oh please.  Those videos of people shitting that don't show anyones face can't possibly be staged.  Obviously the protesters enjoy being surrounded by human feces and have no interest in capturing such perps faces because they welcome them with open arms.


Pedophiles are no danger to society.  Nevermind Dyncorp running CPS and child prostitution rings.  That is for your benefit, you just might not be bright enough to see how.  The protesters that are more concerned about changing the country than a shower every three hours should really strike the fear of God into all Muslim hating Americans.  Move along now, cointelpro is not real.

All I've seen for weeks is yelling and marching.  The fury is there, and definitely warranted, but there's little direction.  Like a missile with one of its fins at a slightly off angle...lots of energy, but you don't know where it's going because it doesn't know itself exactly where it's going.

The only "manifesto" I've seen published by any of the OWS factions denounced capitalism and expoused socialism.  If that's what the OWS is morphing into, then I don't want any part of it.

But if what I saw was only representative of a portion of the OWS movement, and there's a different goal in mind, then what would that be?  I also want things to change in the politico-Wall Street fiasco, but without a clear direction or proposal of legitimate solutions, I'm afraid the OWS will remain perceived as a potential source of riots and nothing else.

I'm just saying...where's the leadership (or spokesperson) of OWS?  What are the official goals of the movement?  As of now, I don't see anything that would warrant my support.  Show me something concrete so I can make an informed decision...don't just give my comment a negative rating and disappear, then act like you're oh-so-superior.

All part of the plan. Who starts an outside protest, with the idea of occupying *anything*, heading into winter? The whole point of the exercise is to put the protestors on the map for 2012. Wait until next summer, things will heat up. With any luck we'll only see curfews and not something more drastic. Either way, it should play right into the election come this time next year.

Here's the real list of demands:


Funny I don't see the abolition of private property anywhere in there. I don't agree with them all, although many seem like good ideas (infrastructure, jubilee as we have already had it for the wealthiest [eg bailouts] then it just becomes a reset).

Some I question or think are naive, but really straight to brown shirt Fascism?! That's the solution?

Here I thought Fascism - in the merger of state and corproations (banks) sense of the word - was kind of the problem.

You want to ramp that up? TSA isn't enough setting up VIPR squads to feel up children? You want tanks in the streets that's gonna fix anything?
