Occupy Wall Street, 2 Views

RE: Occupy Wall Street, 2 Views:
Occupy Wall Street, another futile peasants’ protest.
OCCUPY WALL STREET (the theory).
In a sense both views are correct as we still do not know where it may lead, but I believe the former is more realistic.  Only widespread insurrection and/or economic collapse will break this oligarchical system.  For the latter, one need do nothing.

Still protesting is far better than voting.  At least it does not validate the status quo.

I will give the open source theory credit: it can certainly work as such, but not likely here.  The US is not Egypt.  People here are not willing to get shot.  Hence, the long slow Fall will most likely be the means to end the power of kleptocrats.
