Are we afraid that  we can't speak up without becoming a HYPOCRITE?

If it is the later, being a hypocrite is

  • generally unavoidable
  • largely not considered a moral failing

So get over it!!!!!

The human condition is littered with examples of hypocrisy and as long as you commit your hypocritical act while attempting to provide for your family, you get a free pass.

Despite it all, we've managed to progress, not without setbacks, but overall, we have managed to keep up our momentum and, as a species, progress forward.

Now let's me ask you a question"..

How does "one" work for radical change, while still being part of "the system", even if an unwilling one?

How does one Occupy but sleep in a bed and not be pepper sprayed?

Actually, it is quite easy. Institutions  formerly known as employers and now referred to as the villains) are built by and managed by people.  We used to say they were runfor people by people, now know better.

As people, we all have wants, needs, and fears and the "people" running things are no different than you and I.  This movement is not black and white, there are many who never made it to a General Assembly or experienced a pepper spray moment who are "in the movement" and there are those who were entrenched in the encampment, who are at the end of the day nothing more than  card carrying 1% ers.

It no longer matters. We are now to the next act in the Occupy ballet.

If the goal of the movement is to level the playing field and move towards a more fair and equitable society, to get there we are need:

1. Our desire to survive

2. Our desire to prosper
