90% of corporate business pays little or no tax and the government then give them tax incentives to pay even less on their individual multi million £ bonus - and at a time when the country is struggling financially and we - the ordinary working people who still have a job or a business, are being screwed at every turn in order to help the country struggle out of this financial mess, while the government still squanders billions on wars that are going absolutely nowhere - Iraq and Afghanistan... ( remind me why we are in Afghanistan and Iraq - exactly ??? ) And where is big business in all of this - bankng 'off shore' and hiding their assets from the tax man, probably all legal and above board but nevertheless - their actions are indecent, immoral and repugnant to the rest of us who understand what is being done and how every nurse, teacher, parent, business owner and man, women and child in the street is being screwed by corporate greed and government ineptitude to do anything about it.
So people are now camping out on Wall Street and various other places around the world demanding an end to corporate bullying, lying and theft - an end to incompetant politicians who are often in the pockets of big business and an end to the poor funding the rich and if you do not get it - if you still do not understand and if you still are unable to comprehend what is going on or show any interest, then you are damning everyone else to a life of servitude to the corporate global take over - not just of money and power over every aspect of your life - but to your life iteself and any aspect you may consider free thinking. America is said to be the LAND OF THE FREE - and this is complete rubbish - same in the UK where we are under constant surveilance and constant fear by an incompetant police force and government who are in bed with big business and it is all about control. It is not about people - but power - and you are I are collateral damage if we get a little too near the truth or become a little too powerful in fighting corporate power at their own game.
Many countries in Europe have their finances out of control - partly because of incompetant politicians and partly because of the banks - and what will happen if these countries fail - what if the euro collapses ? America is in MASSIVE debt to China - and if Greece, Italy, Spain and even Ireland sink further, and if the banks do not throw a lifeline and take a losses themselves and stop taking huge bonuses which could be used to offer assistance to tens of thousands - then it will all collapse and we will be back where we were between the two world wars, with people queuing in the streets for soup kitchens and millions unemployed and no money from a government to pay benefits and mass business failures and - well I am sure you get the picture.
Europe cannot allow this to happen - and while those within the hierarchy of power and wealth do not appear to give a damn, as it still means power and wealth for them, it is us, the ordinary person who works hard ( if a job is available ) and who will suffer because of the 1% that own and run the very corporations that are now destroying our lives.
WE HAVE GOT TO TAKE A STAND AND SUPPORT THOSE BRAVE SOULS WHO HAVE TAKEN TO THE STREETS IN PROTEST AGAINST THE BANKS, AGAINST CORPORATIONS OUT OF CONTROL AND AGAINST THOSE GOVERNMENTS THAT CARE LESS FOR THE PEOPLE AND MORE ABOUT THEIR OWN GREED.
Criticism, Violence and Roosting Chickens
ByRichard D. Wolff, Truthout:
"The 99 percent offered criticism of the 1 percent. They struggled peacefully to inform and mobilize public opinion. They won huge numbers of hearts and minds. The 1 percent in the US did what their counterparts in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, and so on did earlier this year ... So now, the weapon of criticism wielded by the 99 percent suffers the counter criticism of violence by servants of the 1 percent. No one will miss which side resorted to organized, massive violence so early and so unnecessarily in this conflict. As in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere, having failed to win hearts and minds, US government agencies cover their failure by resorting to violence."
