This video is typical misinformation, misdirection, and straw men.
If you heard about OWS in some main stream media outlet- you do not know what it is about -period!
Please stop trying to argue against a movement you know nothing about, it make you look foolish.
The point of OWS is to bring public awareness and debate on issues that the partisan multinational corporate owned media refuse to have. They control the narrative and frame all the debates. OWS is about the people finding a way to counter act the media and find a way around them so we can have an honest public discussion about serious problems we face as a nation.
We knew the media would use EVERY tactic it had to smear the moment- and this tread is prof of it. Every critique Ive heard on OWS has been nothing but uninformed nonsense thats so far off the mark its hard to bring oneself to waste energy debating it.
This is a new era. If you want to know whats going on you need to go to the movements own sites and go to social networking sites like youtube. The revolution is not being televised -its being streamed.
Some fun facts from someone whos actually stood face to face with riot police and had discussions with everyone from old hippies to young libertarians:
- OWS is NOT anti-capitalist. The over whelming majority are pro capitalist. Yes, there are anti-capitalist in the movement but they are a minority and we all share common problems/issues and work together.
- OWS is about restoring democracy. If you have not been paying attention multi national banks and corporations have effectively co=oped our government. They do this through lobbying, controlling our currency, and controlling our media. Google citizens United.
There, now you can longer say that OWS has no message.
The bail outs, bad ecconomy, wars, national debt, and deteriorating standing in the world have woke a lot of people up to whats happening.
I understand it seems like OWS is all over the place, but thats because so many issues are tied into the fact that corporations ( special interest ) quite literally write our laws and regulations so that they can profit. You can not really name an issue that is not effected by this.
- the drug war, immigration, the war on terrorism, job outsourcing, union bashing, over-regulation of small business and family farms, school lunch, healthcare, medical science, corporate subsidies, and wide spread fraud in the financial sector,
