On your way to join the crowds crying out to blame? hate? kill? big banks.. STOP a moment. Hear what you area saying! You are not talking about a building, institution and not even money. You are crying out against people. Yes, people. Human beings that you are calling out to die. But even if 1 or 10 of the people within those walls you hate deserve such a fate, have you for a moment though what you are really saying? STOP once again. PLEASE. You are also talking their violent death and talking of loss of many more in the mob thinking of such a justice. You speak out against hate crimes and hate speech.. is this not the same?
Why do we forget in our rush of judgement against an institution that the humans that make up that institution are mostly you and I. Yes, we all partake in banking and Wall Street no matter how we wish to deny it. Do you really want to kill it?
If you do, you are actually fulfilling their wishes. Playing straight into their hands. Mob demands, mob gets, mob rejoices but what is it that they really want? Death to Wall Street and death to BIG banks? In part, yes but that is not the end of it all. NO. What they are really after is a big enough demonstration, outrage and outcry to not only kill those institutions but given to increasing demands to make more regulations and to eventually nationalize it all.
Think of it! You want one big National bank? Total regulation on Wall Street? Do you really want EVERYTHING to be regulated by the government? Because that is what they are crying for underneath all the other signs of outrage. You have no idea what that means, you may have an inkling but no real idea and neither do all those protesters.
That those who are believers in Socialism are demanding such radical changes does not surprise me; but those who are investors in the markets and know what makes it tick? Well, frankly I'm dismayed. What part of freedom to negotiate your own salary and package have you forgotten? Haven't you ever negotiated your salary and exit package? Even if you applied only for a MacDonalds job you had a right to ask in pay for what you think you are worth. Why do you want to give it all away so easily? Is it because you have actually bought into the cry that you are being cheated? If so, you have yet to realize that you are not only cheating yourself, but also your future and your family. Because, yes, ultimately what you forget is your own responsibility and with it your choice to be who you are. Give that away to someone else to control and you have nothing.
History keeps repeating and many get angry for one reason or another about being dealt and unjust hand, but that is life. You're not the first or last to be cheated, embezzled of burnt. But unfortunately what happens it that the first in line gets whacked while the rest scurry into woodwork and conduct from there. The mob, sees nothing; sweat of anger diminishes vision and demanding steps they will later regret; they take up a cause they've yet to understand the consequences of. It is thus that Totalitarianism which rapes souls, takes hold.
If you do not believe that this so called simultaneous outrage is an organized movement, I suggest that you do some investigating. Look up history. You'll read the same outcries. Just substitute current title Imperialism then, Wall St. today. White Russian against Red Russian. The peasant cause that let everyone have a cow but not their middle class dreams. Suggest that you start reading fervently and listening to those who have experienced history with it for far longer perhaps than you've been alive.
Is it inevitable? I hope not. Will it happen? I hope not. I keep being positive about the American knowhow and belief that all of history is somehow in the genes by now of most who are living, yet when I see signs and articles that are totally thoughtless receiving accolades, I really wonder how much intelligence has already been undermined and eroded.
Come on everybody, Americans, it's been relatively easy for you until now, it's time to stand up and fight for your freedom and not for your burial. Start demanding that your government govern according to the Constitution as written. You want education? Study. You want honesty, demand it from the media, government and yourselves. You want free money? Pay for it with your taxes. You want representation? Demand it from your elected officials. Quit being cry-baby victims. No body can fool you unless you let them. So stop being jealous and greedy. Because in truth that's what stick in your craw with those golden parachute packages; It's more than you've got. Those that got more pay, asked and fought for it. Those that got ahead, worked for it. Face yourself in the mirror and and get some courage. Be another Steve Jobs, better yet, be yourself and then, no one and no bank, company or institution will be able to beat you down.
