Occupy Wall Street - One good reason why it has started

Henry Ford once said, “It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”

the people still don't

What is probably more true is that the people just don't want to understand.

People in general put their faith in the politicians they elect who often get elected by fear mongering and not the issues. The 2 parties play to the biases of their base aka secondary constituents. Mainstream media in turn amplifies the bias divide. The Tea Party and OWS are grass root movements that if they do not get hijacked or criminalized can make a change.

If the “Occupy” Movement and Tea Party Join Together, We Can End the Malignant Partnership Between Big Government

Pundits and politicians thrive in a polarized world. So, threatened and fueled by the very existence of the other side, many of them have claimed these movements as yet another tool to gripe at one another…. And yet, there are a few voices noting these movements’ common cause. Jim Harper at the right-leaning Cato Institute is an example:

 There are plenty of reasons to reject the possibility of alliance between Tea Partyism and OWS, but not necessarily good ones….To the extent the substance of their grievance is, or can be turned to, corporations’ use of government power to win unjust power and profits for themselves, that’s a grievance I can sit in a drum circle for.

 ***

And even some Tea Party organizers have said things like, “it’s funny that the Occupy Wall Street guys are also against phoney capitalism and we agree about that.”

Another key founder of the Tea Party – Karl Denninger – also supports the protests, and points out that the demands of the Tea Party protesters were originally very similar to those of the Occupy protesters (before the mainstream Republican party co-opted the Tea Party) .
