A Movement is Born

As #OWS spreads across the country, people are realizing, it's time to live!

This article is available in:

Jammers, dreamers, rabble-rousers, revolutionaries,

#OCCUPYWALLSTREET is thundering across America, threatening to morph into a full fledged national movement. Channeling the nonviolence of the Egyptian Tahrir Square uprising and the bottom-up collective decision making of the Spanish acampadas, we vow to end the monied corruption of our democracy.

This Saturday #OCCUPYWALLSTREET enters its third week … be there at Noon and stay for the weekend … or be at one of the 50+ fledgling occupations now being organized across the land.

Our people's democracy movement is about to get three mighty boosts:

  • On October 6, a few thousand of us will swarm the capital and #OCCUPYDC. Find out the plan at october2011.org
  • On October 15th, the movement goes global … check it out at 15october.net
  • Then, on November 3 and 4, we have something special in mind for when the G20 leaders meet in France.

Time to live!

PS.

Our movement needs more edgy theatrics … maybe we should tar and feather the Charging Bull … or burn an effigy of Lloyd Blankfein? Send your wild ideas to [email protected].

To get a sense of the visceral mood at #OCCUPYWALLSTREET, check out the daily dispatches from OccupyTVNY along with the mini-documentaries "We Are The 99%" and "Nobody Can Predict The Moment Of Revolution." Also, David Graeber's op-ed in the Guardian and Nathan Schneider's article in the Nation are worth reading.

"The Fed" is only one part of a much bigger problem -- the OWS movement is aiming deeper for a better result -- plutocracy is the problem, democracy is the solution -- aim for democracy!

Remember Wall Streets Corruption stems from the Federal Reserve Bank. Occupy Wall Street needs to Occupy the Federal Reserve Bank until Ben S. Bernanke is removed and the Fed is Audited. This will really show the people where the corruption lies. Say no to Communism (Look at China, Russia) Say no to Corporate Facism, Say No to corrupt corporations, that fester in the evils of the Central Bank.. the Fed. End the Fed!

Fetishizing "end the Fed" is not the answer (the answer won't come from politicians or radio hosts), and may ultimately serve the plutocrats by derailing the movement for a democratic society. Democracy is the answer.

Fetishizing "end the Fed"?

To say that central banking is the core, stem, heart of the larger issue is simply stating what a very intelligent man prognosticated long ago:

The central bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the Principles and form of our Constitution. I am an Enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but Coin. If the American People allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the People of all their Property until their Children will wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered.
