Response to Fire Walk With Me (Reply #37)

Sun Jan 1, 2012, 02:45 PM

55. As reported frequently byTim last night.

And for those who think this looks silly, it might. But that's not seeing the forest for the trees.

These actions keep the fire going, in the national consciousness, in the only way the disenfranchised have ever had, with their bodies. The media blackout has been complete and those oppose the system of death are overwhelmed by the 24/7 control of talk radio, cable and broadcast frequency news and a lot of the internet.

The mainstream media will NOT cover the abuse to the people of this planet because they have a conflict of interest, working for those who are doing the harm.

The Occupy movement is still in its infancy, creating a grassroots awareness to wake people up. It is their bodies and their time they are putting on the line for our future and theirs.

I see no room to criticize them, having lived through the sixties and seen the warlike mentality by both sides of the anti-war issue, for example. The Occupiers are less hostile than we were in those days which accomplishes a great deal more in the long run, IMO.

BTW, FWWM, I wish the last sentence on the poster was not there, it feeds the same mindset the 1% are promoting.

'You can't stop an idea whose time has come' is better.
