"People don't want handouts. It's not a class uprising and they don't want civil war – they want just the opposite. They want everyone to live in the same country, and live by the same rules. It's amazing that some people think that that's asking a lot." by matt taibbi
We can see from Matt Taibbi's statements that central banking, the corrupt US judicial system and many other facets of Leviathan including the political system itself are not the priority of OWS from his point of view. Only flagellating the banksters. As brilliant and sincere as Taibbi may be, such a narrow focus would seem to provide us with evidence that this is a manipulated "populist" movement not a genuine groundswell of indignation at the way the world currently works. In fact, it may have started that way, but it is not now.
Conclusion: Libertarians might consider leaving OWS, as we have mentioned before, to try to push for real reforms of the system in another way using another platform. There will be, eventually, significant unrest in the US, as elsewhere in the world. But if we are correct in our analysis, much of this unrest may escape the control of the elites evidently and obviously behind OWS. This is their attempt at creating controlled social upheaval. The real thing may be yet to come.

my personal opinion is that "The Daily Bell" is too focused on being Libertarian, just as any other labeled position, be it Democrat,Republican, or Centrist. It is not that each is totally wrong, but that each has an aspect of their stance that is correct...it is that aspect that we all need to see and come together to formulate the best answers for everyone. No answers will be exactly what another may want, but the best common goal.
It is certain aspects of the very system that are corrupt,get rid of those aspects and allow the system to work naturally for itself. But with so many spoons stirring the pot for their own benefit in spite of the consequences on others, the soup will never cook and be eatible.
A true free market system would not have the meddlers that corrupt and usurp the system...OWS and TPP and everyone needs to be talking what is a true Constitutional economic system and get rid of the manipulations that have corrupted it.
