We have seen this before. Police act together through a support network that spans the country. Maybe #Occupy should just make it easy on them when they show up and move their belongs rather than have confrontation because they don't seem to do well if there isn't hubris involved to support their egos.
The mayors are not interested in any communication and like to victimize the image of the protesters by portraying them as social sludge, so there seems to me to be a real problem with the way government addresses the problems the majority of citizens face in the year 2011.
I still believe the peaceful protest is the best venue. It literally makes fools of the authorities that seek to ignore the problems of the majority rather than face them. It protects lives, although those violent police actions do damage, don't they? Unarmed people end up in hospitals and emergency rooms. The simple 'police action' speaks eons of the existing oppression of the current government 'mind think.'
The answer is to rid the system of authorities tainted by Wall Street. Is that best done when people are assaultive, so much as true to their values? The message of #Occupy resonates because it is true. Everyone feels the oppression and lack of opportunity within this country. A lack of opportunity that is profound and well founded in the methodology of Wall Street. #Occupy is the truth within this country and for many globally.
Demonstrating is a method to turn life's understanding into a solid moment in time to convey the truth that exists in the firmament. Truth of oppression is noted in overt ways, but, often hidden from the profound definition of The West. The West likes to hide its truth from public view. That is a fact. Protests, marches form a solidified understanding there are profoundly poor conditions for citizens. The poverty rate is up to 15%. That is not a minor topic. The USA places questionable rankings globally in education, health care and particular topics such as infant mortality. That was not our country ten years ago.
#Occupy Movement has very high moral content. The questionable actions of a few is simply normal statistics. There is malady that occurs in behavior when people do not have resources. Alcoholism and crime are a known quality that fluctuate due to economic conditions. President Obama has provided an adequate safety net for many up to now following the exploitation of the USA Treasury in 2008. Bailing out banks did nothing to benefit the citizens. It didn't improve their paychecks, their health care or their opportunity at the American Dream.
Regardless of how derelict the media and government seeks to paint the movement, the reason it is resilient is because we are the truth. We know it, no one else has to. It has a universal message that has defied oppression.
The #Occupy Movement has achieved huge goals. The future belongs to the people that seek the truth and move it forward. I believe President Obama has tried to secure a nation of fairness and prosperity for the citizens of the country, but, we all know the problem. Those that see the world through their own kaleidoscope of images based in
'profits only' at any cost are the problem, not us. A society is its people and not its profits. There are venues to resolve this and they will be realized, but, they are best realized within the movement through collective power, not venues of violence. I sincerely believe that.
There are reasons to believe we are correct and contain the character integrity to sustain the assault of image makers. I believe we can build our own infrastructure as well. That is power. People are inherently afraid of power, especially their own.
