  1. here’s a video from Occupy Atlanta

  2. time to understand better.
    consider apartheid and how they played south africa, and for how long and now israel and on and on and greece and iceland – wait not iceland – and now the u.s.?


    scott olsen probably knew more of this perspective than anyone else there and put himself between protesters and police intentionally. self sacrifice to protect friends from psychopaths is noble. it probably does not do much in the long run.

    violent protesters are counterproductive. violent police attacking peaceful protesters do not help stop corruption much either. how well did the media cover the antiglobalist protests?

    sure oakland will lose a mayor and probably a police chief and a supervisor or two. eventually they will use more technology to stop accurate exposure of their crimes. and the psychopathic intraspecies predators will find new puppets to prey on the 99%.

    so what makes the outcomes in iceland different from greece and so far the u.s.?
