On the Occupy Movement…

19 Oct

With the Occupy Movement spreading not only across the country but all over the globe, I think that things are starting to really get serious.  Except for the protests in Rome, I have not heard about any of the other protests getting violent.  This, I think, is beyond good, besides the obvious that violence between protesters and authorities is not going to be helpful to either side, or the fact that violence is never going to benefit anyone anywhere, ever.

While I think that the protests are useful for angry citizens to vent about the injustices that they believe are being done against them.  The call for tighter regulations on Wall St. and for government to actually listen to their constituents.  Each year, it feels like voting means less and less and that greasing the wheels on government is the only way to get anything done.  The Congress is constantly at each others throats and getting little to nothing of importance done, and  it is just frustrating.  Even living in a small town, I get the feeling that nothing is happening that will actually help our economy or government.

So what is to be done?  What is going to happen next?  Is there any actual change that will come from this movement?  Even though I have no pull with the Occupy Movement, what do you think?  Any suggestions about what you think they could do to improve?  Anything you would like to vent about?  Let me know!

    I’m a lousy prognosticator… heck, I bet everything Y2K would happen. But having said that, I think there will be some profound outcomes from OWC, but what those outcomes will be remains unpredictable.
