It is not a mob; it is people.

The Occupy Wall Street demonstration, is not just a mob reaction to the economic state of the United States. It is the type of outrage that has been brewing for many years, that Wall Street has become the center of "eliteness" in the country.

The reason being that, the big corporations, banks and financial institutions have turned a system that is supposed to benefit a whole lot of people into a game of some sorts. They have more money than the Federal Reserve and therefore they can do what the like with it.

As a result, vital businesses and industries are being starved of capital investments; something which they need to expand and grow; hence the acute unemployment and a sagging economy.

They are hoarding the monies and making interests to pay their CEOs and executives huge salaries and immeasurable bonuses, year in and year out; thus creating a pool of rich society for those who know how to play the game. College graduates are attracted to it, leaving out the rest, who cannot afford to be part of this special group of citizenry.

At the same time, the pay of ordinary working people is stagnant, while the cost of living tends to rise exponentially; and so, they remain poor, and in many cases they cannot make their mortgage payments current or they cannot even pay the rent. They even go to bed on an empty stomach, with their families, to boot.

If there will ever be a class warfare in America, that will be it; separate societies, with the rich looking down on those that are rather unfortunate and therefore being poor; a situation of their own making.

Unlike Europe, laziness is not rampant in the U.S.; so, why this sudden economic downturn? Europeans have always had class differences, which dates back to the days of feudalism.

Their economies have joined with others, like the U.S., through world financial markets; so, what happens there affects almost every country. They therefore have themselves to blame for the most part.

It has never been so in America, until the decision to have "the rich versus the poor pastime" in Wall Street, by corporations and banks, who can sit tight on the monies that others can use to create jobs; hence, the gloomy state of affairs economically.

It can be said that the march on WS is unmistakably an unlawful assembly, and the authorities must do all they can to stop it; but it is spontaneous, and it is organizing the common man in the street against what is an unfair game. His life, for whatever it is, is important too, and he must do what he can to safeguard it. Therefore, who can blame him?

It is not what somebody has said that will improvise it; it is the people rooting for poverty to subside. Wall Street must come to earth where we all live; they are saying.

What makes it sad is that ordinary citizens are footing the bill of all that is happening, through high taxes; of which the rich have to pay their fair share, but they are refusing to do so, with the support of some people in the U.S. Congress.

So the Wall Street demonstration is spreading, and now engulfing the whole nation. Again, State and local governments will have to delve into their meager budgets to pay for the cost and outcome. The money that they need to build and furnish schools, with computers and other technologies, for the children to learn more for their future will be going down the drain.

However, the demonstration in Wall Street is the only recourse the common man in the street has, and so, it must continue; and the only hope is that it will not turn into the riots as being witnessed in Europe nowadays.

G__ forbid.
