Instead of one to two thousand people a day joining in the occupation there needs to be tens of thousands of people protesting the fat cats driving Bentleys and drinking thousand-dollar bottles of champagne with money they looted from the financial crisis and then from the bailouts while Americans literally die on the streets.Real democracy can be a messy affair, but there is no shortcut to it. The only alternative is what we have witnessed during the past 10,000 years (which is less than 2% of human existence)--class rule by priesthoods, warrior castes, landed aristocracies, and now capitalists.
During the past 100 years this latest version of class rule has culminated in horrific global wars, crimes against humanity, economic collapses, and environmental destruction. If the evolutionary experiment of the human race is going to succeed depends on those of us now living. We have a choice. We can simply resign ourselves to class rule, indulge in a detached cynicism, descend into debt servitude, tolerate more wars, experience more police violence against citizens, and stand by and watch our planet become slowly uninhabitable.
Or we can stand up and say, "no more!. We will not allow you to destroy us and our planet. We will live with dignity, equality, and in harmony with each other with our universal home, our planet Earth."
