First of all, WOW...a personable discussion. Give thankhs to the truthspeak.
*******I will say though that I do not think that all elements of the movement are coming from merely "give us our cut" mentality.*******
Sure. Fair enough. But we must realize that as an American, we are psychological invested in the country. Our fight or flight instincts are incorporated into society.
That is how the Obama phenomenon took shape. Remember, the approval rating of public officials in general were at its lowest. We had allegations of election fraud. We had allegations of racial profiling and discrimination at the polls...and lo and behold appears a BLACK MAN running for president. WOW, can you believe it. One of us has finally risen to the top. If only my grandfather was alive to see this magnificent blessed day. (sniff sniff)
"If Obama won the election, then everything is on the up and up. Our votes DO count. America DOES work. I am SOMEBODY"
It worked on blacks and it worked on OWS type whites. What it did was pacify an otherwise disgusted society which would have SPONTANEOUSLY resulted in revolt in contrast to this Canadian initiated facebook OWS crap.
Let us be mindful that some of the strategies of COINTELPRO was to push "false-flag" revolutionaries and rhetoric in order to dilute the real action and to cause apathy amongst the masses (e.g. how folks are tired of always seeing Sharpton and Jesse and others like Farrakhan spewing what ones perceive to be self-serving hot air).
This no different from "conspiracy theorists" who flood our ears with conspiracy after conspiracy until they are all invalidated in our minds.
How do you think accusations of racism got reduced to a person "playing the race card"?
Bottomline...OWS is contrived just like the Rodney King riots were. There were no signs and marching to the LA police headquarters demanding justice. No, they looted liquor and electronic stores There were those who were egged on by planted CNN (CIA?) cameramen who encouraged the chaos.
"Look ma, I'm on TV".
The Rodney King riots were a response by controllers to the DECREASE in violence as a result of Jim Brown and the Amer-i-can program actually succeeding in forming gang truces.
Chaos in South Central was BIG BUSINESS and the catalyst for big political manipulation via public opinion. Rampart and CRASH police units regulated the crack trade and they needed a "street war" to deflect the attention...a la the Iran/Contra Ollie North guns and drugs exchange.
OWS only serves to give the appearance of resistance. Lights, camera, please send...action.
*******I think there does exist a genuine concern for these greater issues within some elements*******
360, there HAS to be some amount of legitimacy for any action to hold water.
There is truth behind what Hitler, KKK, Elijah Muhammad, Black Panther, Skinheads, TeaPartiers, Liberals, Conservatives, Xtians, Moslems, Jews, Communists, Capitalist, Socialists, etc etc stand for.
Question is, is it the WHOLE truth and nothing but the truth?
What is OWS calling for?
