As Occupy Protests around the world are violently disbursed for trying to raise awareness about the suicidal course the world is on they were first painted as "diffuse", "unfocused" and "meaningless" by the press, and as they grew to worldwide numbers enough to constitute an actual threat, portrayed to be criminal, socialist, and communist, a fallacious view held by many here who's only knowledge of them is either through mainstream press or Right Wing Punditry, they are now "mistakenly" being classified as terrorists along with Al Queda and FARC.

Congress is the midst of passing a law that will allow The US to imprison -for life- American Citizens on American Soil without ever being charged with a crime or having a trial, even going so far as to be able to imprison them if they are found innocent if classified as terrorists...such as protesters.
The OWS position is the world as it is, is insane, run by political and corporate Sociopaths
Trudell is a bit of a granola guy, but I share his views that Society has a whole has been warped, this is nothing new, but as the years have passed the Sociopaths have slowly gained ground as their policy includes, but is not limited to conquest, and exterminating everything and everyone in their path, this has gone on for millennium, includes ruling parties and ruling families as well as Organized Religion, the evidence for this is overwhelming, and started on this continent with Columbus, continued with Cortez, and was fulfilled with the introduction of Andrew Jackson's Policies and "Manifest Destiny", a justification for the genocide for an entire populationAs one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power. We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments. We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known.
I believe these policies to be methodical and purposeful, not, as a result of some worldwide conspiracy, but as the direct result of Sharks having professional courtesy for each other, as evidenced by the example of Nancy Pelosi saying "Impeachment/Prosecution is off the table" for Bush
I maintain that our very Society is ill, that what we view as basic policies are in fact Radical Extremism, Racism and Fascism, and that is why I view our governments policies, and Television Stations such as Fox News and Pundits such as Bill O'Reilly as "Radicals", because while they may not appear very far to the "Right" of our "centrist" policies, I maintain that those themselves have been corrupted, that any Society that relies on Military Force to push and enforce Economic Agendas is in fact, evil
When I voted for Obama, I voted for "Change I could believe in" as all of his speeches addressed curtailing these very policies, but what we got was this:
I believe that destroying the environment, torturing animals for "research", and the exploitation, suppression, and murder of people is fundamentally wrong, and that by engaging in Partisan Debate, all we are doing is arguing about the degrees of evil and spending our time in fingerpointing and blame, I believe this is by design to keep us divided as well as get us to support the very agenda that is oppressing us, as both the Democrats and Republicans both agree on one thing, they both vote for the exact same thing
"The lesser of two evils" in order to defeat the fundamentally unsound and insane policies of their opponents
I think the "food" provided by our mainstream media is comparable to the "food" provided by our fast food restaurants, the "chicken" and "beef" in these products were illegal for consumption and sold as pet food just a few years ago, by sending all this "trash" to large factories and forcing ammonia through it to kill the germs, it is now legal for sale to humans
I believe it will come to this shortly, and I have no doubt I will be on the "Right" side for me morally, but it won't end well for me if I persist
I want a better planet, I am not Naive enough to want a Utopian Society, but I think one not run by Psychopaths and Sociopaths that is destroying the planet and oppressing, murdering, torturing, maiming, and locking up for dissident beliefs it's people in the name of economic oppression is possible
I realize these views leave me open to be labeled all sorts of things by those people who do support "The Party Line" as all sorts of things and names, I am comfortable with that, I view our policies to be nothing short of murderous insanity, and expect, especially here to be castigated and ridiculed for those views
