Do you think there is a kernel of truth to the concerns of the Occupy Wall Street movement?
there is lots of truth in it, How corporations control our government which fails us economically time after time after time, while the lower middle and upper classes have all been sucked nearly dry, while the Ultra High Class bankers, and corporate tycoons, have gained more wealth than anyone would ever need to survive, yeah there is truth in it, i just don't like he way they are going about it, sure it sends a message, but theres 100s of different groups out there all preaching different conflicting messages, To be an actual movement, they need more organization, and more solidarity, most are to busy arguing with each other over whats wrong, and none have any clue as to what they would actually do to fix it
In an argument that multifaceted, with so many sharp minds on each side, there's always a kernel of truth in either position. But no, I don't really tingle in harmony with the "evil corporations are evil and evilly do evil things" narrative. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, I believe in the right of corporations to exist because of the extreme importance I place on the private ownership of property, and the importance I assign to the right of individuals do with their own stuff as they see fit.
Absolutely. We have lost control of the Representative Republic our founding fathers intended. Corporations control our government to the highest level. Greed and corruption are rampant from the top to the bottom. I do believe that everyone needs to be on the same page. Some of the folks saying they wouldn't work for an evil corporation while they are listening to their ipod and wearing designer jeans clearly don't get it. Simply taking a look at the campaign contributions make it very clear the banksters are in control.
Yes they have valid points about big brother government plus all the corporations. No, I do not believe that things can be solved by violence but by being peaceful then they may change things for the better. It is not only the people in the movement but America as a whole are tired of the greed, no jobs, giving out billions to other countries instead of helping their own people here at home, and other grievances. For the last ten years I have seen our country getting worse instead of better. How can we change it? That is the big question and we can all do our part: live within your means, take a lesser paying job if necessary, and take care of yourself. Get out there and vote and advocate for change peacefully. Change takes time and maybe we will see big changes in the future.
