    I’m so happy for the 99% and people in the Occupy movement! It’s fantastic to know that people are waking up in their thousands, and at the very least, getting some truth and knowledge in their lives.

    However, to be an aggressor of sorts, I think the best way to get the 1% attention is by using somewhat less savioury tactics (to say the least). As GWB said, you’ve got to fight terror with terror.

      “I think the best way to get the 1% attention is by using somewhat less
      savioury tactics (to say the least). As GWB said, you’ve got to fight
      terror with terror.”

      While on one level I agree and would like to see the 1% really get what’s been coming to them, on a “higher” level I do not think it is at all necessary to use terror tactics or violence, and to my mind it seems that would probably end up being more beneficial to the other side.
      Plus, taking seriously anything GWB said is only gonna fuck up your head.

      On a side note, to me it seems the movements are more about bringing these issues to the attention of the entire country and perhaps the rest of the world as well. It’s not about getting the attention of the 1% and telling them to change things, it’s letting them know that the people are finally waking up and are done with their bullshit, and are finally realizing that we must break our reliance on external saviors and SAVE OURSELVES, BUILD THE NEW SYSTEM OURSELVES, YOU AND ME AND ALL OF WE

        Yeah I wasn’t being totally serious when I said fight terror with terror, I just think it’s a classic line (A joke in itself) It’s fantastic to create awarness, but if people are then just going to go home, in the same position but “knowing” whats happening still isn’t going to change anything, the banks will just carry on knowing that people know what they’re up to, and not really giving a shit.

        If everybody around the world, or even the majority decided not to play the game, to quit the system we are in then I’m sure change will come, otherwise nothing is going to change. Things are going to get worse, the bankers will fund more security for themselves and their political friends and then shit will hit the fan when the situation is so bad its ether riot or rot and by that stage we’ll be fed with a bullet in the head. The Masters are on to us, just as much as we are on to them.
