Occupy Movement, a Movement about Protest, Disruption, Revenge, or Protection?


I question the premise that this is a movement that must choose between protest or disruption. I believe that Occupy can be a movement about Protection.
Right now 5,000 to 10,000 homeowners are being foreclosed upon each and every day in the United States.
I am concerned that the Occupy Movement is more about people under the age of 35 who just don't care enough about people over the age of 35. If Occupy doesn't care enough about the people who are about to fall off the foreclosure cliff at the rate of 5,000 to 10,000 a day, then that may mean Occupy is really more about the protestors themselves than any one issue that is bigger than them. 

If Occupy is more about revenge and prosecution of a few wall street criminals while 5,000 to 10,000 americans are foreclosed upon each and every day, then just what 99% is the Occupy movement representing?

If Occupy could change one thing that would actually have an instant effect and actually help the 99% that Occupy portends to represent, I would suggest changing the banking law that requires a person default before their debt can be restructured.

Change this one banking law and the robbery of main street's wealth can be mitigated. Suddenly Occupy may find that the economy can heal from within and not with higher taxation or more stimulus packages.

Simply allowing anybody who needs their debt restructured to have it restructured without having to default may be the impetus our economy needs to heal from within.




Don't forget, the Cat Who Ate Chase Bank, the book, coming out in sometime in 2011.

Please Download the Chase Bank Protest Protest Flyer for FREE, and then all that needs to be done is just give a few copies out, it is really that simple.

  1. Don't know where you live, but first day of Occupy Fort Worth was nearly 75% "over forty" and about 25% an eager "under 30" crowd. A small percentage were the Sixty Plus "hippies" ;-}

  2. The lack of attention regarding the 5,000 to 10,000 daily home foreclosures in the U.S. by the Occupy movement leads me to conclude that the majority of those involved are 35 and under.

    However I don't dispute what you experienced. Please check out Occupy News for up to date information on over 100 Occupy Blogs worldwide.

    I use Occupy News to learn about the Occupy Movement from many different perspectives, including visiting the Occupy chat rooms, and that is what I drew my consensus from.
