Economy Tantrums around the Globe

We are living in a dangerous period in America. The pitiful state of the economy has exposed a volatile split in the way people view the current state of our nation. Taking it to the streets. What began with dozens of ne'er-do-wells on Constitution Day (September 17th) is now a multi-continent event. With the "Day of Rage" on October 15th we witnessed thousands in the streets across Europe, and thousands more at home. The Occupy Wall Street movement came out of nowhere. In just 4 weeks we have a movement that has gained some real traction. The young people who started the Occupy Wall Street protest a few weeks ago are about to learn some important lessons about life in the grown-up world. More Here..

  1. Thinking about Revolution

    "What do we mean by the Revolution? The war? That was no part of the revolution; it was only an effect and consequence of it. The revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected from 1760 – 1775, in the course of fifteen years, before a drop of blood was shed at Lexington.”

    –John Adams, Letter to Thomas Jefferson, August 24, 1815

    Once again the time has come for revolution in America. Instead of a British king we have a ruling class of bankers and billionaires who control the government and all the important institutions of society. The future holds misery for the many and privilege for the few.

    These and other problems are part of a system in which money is power and most people don’t have any. The powerful men and women who run our world were not elected and cannot be unelected. They can only be removed from power by revolution.

Why equality means replacing capitalism with a sharing economy without money, in which everybody has equal access to the wealth and benefits that society creates. Why democracy means laws are only made locally with order in society coming from voluntary federation.]
