  •  Who are the financial wizards? (0+ / 0-)

    These are people who, like everybody else, started out wanting to get a good job and have a good life.  They got educated with that in mind.  

    To some extent the protest as a technique is aimed at the theory that someone can be appealed to and ultimately some influence can take things in some better direction.

    The problem as I see it is that there is really no one home.

    If one expects that there are wizards or geniuses at the center of this, I think the problem is that there is really a lack of consciousness.

    The system of trading investments and profits won't go away because human beings need to eat.  

    Evolution however, will certainly happen whether anyone wants it to or not.

    The protests in and of themselves don't ultimately do anything.  They do, however, show that there is a deep feeling that a very large part of the population shares that there is something going tremendously wrong.

    That feeling ultimately will get turned into actions.  But since there is really no one home at the center of this because it has gottent to be too complicated, it will have to take a whole lot of people consistently expressing a whole lot of stress in a whole variety of ways to begin to move things.  

    The only predictions that can be made are about what happened in history, not what will happen as a result of a situation that so challenges human abilities.  

    hope that the idiots who have no constructive and creative solutions but only look to tear down will not win the day.
