    organizing a non-violent sit-in of that scale and duration are willing to do so. Most of them take the easy way and simply deny that it would ever work.

    Like Climate Change, the matrix isn't a fantasy. It's already happening.

    The Class, Terror and Climate Wars are indivisible and the short-term outcome will affect the planet for centuries. -WiA "When you triangulate everything, you can't even roll downhill..." - PhilJD

      did work for a while, but was put down in a very physical and public way with the authorities arresting and pepper spraying the occupiers.  It was a shame that the country didn't listen to the needs of the people asking for a better life.  Since the bank bailouts it seems that the CEOs and companies like AIG have gotten the upper hand and now can demand more and more from us,  The CEOs are like giants that are eating up all the financial resources the rest of us also need to live on.  It boggles the mind to think that they, very people that were bailed out, are now making more demands in order to secure their selfish, greedy, positions in life.  And not once have they ever shown some thankfulness for those of us that scarificed so they could continue to get big bonuses.  No instead of being thankful they turned around and bragged and inflated their egos and declared those of us that bailed them out lazy and in need of working harder and longer.  They are now bff with Washington and are constantly whispering in Washington's ear sweet nothings and Washington buys it.
