Thomas Jefferson said “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency they will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” As is often the case, Jefferson was right and his comment contained an unwelcome fortune tale. Every aspect of American life is controlled and governed by financial corporations. They own the government, the media, the police, the entire state apparatus and all those things feed back in a grand loop to benefit the small elite at the top, the 1% as they have been dubbed.
The American people have realised that the time for talking has stopped and there is no room for negotiation any more. The American people have been sleeping for so long and dreaming their American dream, but no more. It was a dream built on the fabrication of ideals that knew no boundaries of falsity. A giant concocted fairy tale engineered to squeeze false hope from the masses. People are slowly but surely realising this and they are standing, shoulder to shoulder as they look their tormentors in the eye and say as one “we will take this no more!”
The American government and their police protectors believe protests in foreign lands are democratic, but to do it at home is somehow unpatriotic. Every avenue of their oppressive regime will be employed to cow the masses in to retreat. The people must not retreat. The state is scared, this is obvious from the level of wrongheaded commentary coming from the mouthpieces of the wealthy. The death throes of any dying regime will be their most aggressive and ultimately most futile as long as the people stay the course.
The Americans have a great tradition of popular protest, from anti-colonialism to civil-rights. The rest of the world looks to the self styled leader of the free to give us what they so long claimed as theirs. That very freedom to hold that state to account. We follow where they lead. When they wrongly chose capitalism, so did we. When they wrongly chose nuclear weapons, so did we. For the first time in a long time the most powerful nation on earth can choose reason, rationality and right. And we will follow! This could be the proudest moment in the short history of the United States of America. Good luck, and good night.
