The world’s population topped seven billion just a few days ago and, in North America, the top one percent are marking the occasion by deploying their Gestapo police forces across the continent to dismantle the encampments of the peaceful Occupy-ers who are working for a better world.
In cities across the U.S. and Canada, the Gestapo In Blue are forgetting that they too are part of the 99 percent and instead are wilfully breaching the constitutions they have all sworn an oath to uphold, in order to do the grubby bidding of the criminal socioeconomic elite – the millionaires, mega-millionaires, billionaires and mega-billionaires who already own almost everything worth owning.
That the actions of the po-lice may in fact be unconstitutional does not seem to bother any of these idiots in uniform.
At almost all the malevolent shutdowns of Occupy-er camps, almost all of the violence has been committed by not the protesters but the police. Their brutality has known no bounds.
But the partiotic Occupy-ers must not allow their just causes to be defeated just because the mighty are flexing their paid muscle in angry response to a just assault on their illicit wealth, power and privilege.
We have reached a point in history where there must be drastic and dramatic change or we will all peril.
Technically, the world can produce enough food and other essentials to be able to provide a decent standard of living for all. But it cannot provide both the basics for everyone and still accommodate a pampered elite of millionaires and billionaires.
We must choose: Either we provide at least the basics for everyone or we continue to pamper and immorally enrich a corrupt and criminal socioeconomic elite who have been stealing everything they could steal from the masses – the poor, the working class and the middle class – for five centuries, but most especially for the past three decades.
There is simply nothing left for them to steal from the masses.
In a just world, almost every millionaire, mega-millionaire, billionaire and mega-billionaire would now already be in prison – probably serving life terms for crimes against humanity.
It is their insatiable greed, their imponderable incompetence, their brazen corruption and their unpunished criminality that have come so close to bringing the whole world to its knees.
If mankind is to survive, that illegitimate socioeconomic/political elite must now be brought to its knees and forced to accept that they are no better than anyone else and most certainly not entitled to live like kings and queens while billions struggle mightily just to survive.
The whole corporate capitalist agenda and the entire corporate capitalist system must be reduced to rubble.
When will we humans finally figure it out?
