Occupiers: Let this be our Message to the American People

The 1% with all the money, and their Republican and Democratic politicians controlled by money, do not represent the 99%, do not serve the 99%, and do not have any legitimate right to govern the 99%.

To soldiers, sailors and members of police forces, we say: Do not obey orders from the 1%, to attack the movement of the 99%. Our movement aims to create a fundamentally more equal and democratic society. If you obey such orders you will be taking the side of the dictatorship of the rich and attacking your own people. Refuse such orders. Come over to the side of the people--your neighbors and friends and relatives.

To the American people, we say: Once again it is time for revolution in America. Instead of a British king we have a ruling class of bankers and billionaires who control the government and all the important institutions of society. The powerful men and women who run our world were not elected and cannot be unelected. They can only be removed from power by revolution.

Our goal is democratic revolution, to break the power of the ruling elite and create a society run by and for the people: a true democracy, with a non-capitalist economy in which all who contribute to it share equally in its benefits.

Join us. Show your support with signs saying "Equality" in your windows and in any other way you can think of. Help to spread these ideas far and wide. We are the 99%. We can make a new world.

John, I have an idea very aligned with your efforts. It's called World 5.0, applying the idea of an o/s to culture. The central premise is the Life Is This Moment, and that we intend to create a cultural o/s based on the power of Love instead of the system of globalization based on the power of money that only enriches the 1%.

An Alternative to Capitalism (if the people knew about it, they would demand it)

Several decades ago, Margaret Thatcher claimed: "There is no alternative". She was referring to capitalism. Today, this negative attitude still persists.

I would like to offer an alternative to capitalism for the American people to consider. Please click on the following link. It will take you to an essay titled: "Home of the Brave?" which was published by the Athenaeum Library of Philosophy:
