Massive groups converging on Washington and Wall Street, are easily controlled. The powers that be have shown again and again that they are ready, willing, able-even eager- to confront us in this manner. There's evidence to support the argument that they are, in fact, hoping to provoke us to do it. Their tool- their win.

There are two proven and highly effective paths to nonviolent, meaningful change: Massive boycotts, and massive generalized strikes. These are the tools that belong to us. Let's use them.

The battle field should not be the seats of power. Rather it should be scattered into skirmishes all around the country, your town, your neighborhood. They can, in an instant, call up any number of police and National Guard to contain and control 10,000 of us in one spot. They simply cannot call up enough police and National Guard to contain and control a hundred of us in ten thousand places at the same time. It's called  taxing security.  Understand that concept and use it.

Stop going into debt. Stop paying your mortgage, your rent, your utilities.  Force their hand- make them contemplate disenfranchising multiple millions of Americans all at the same time, instead of allowing to attack us one at a time.

Let's be clear headed about this. It is our willingness to accept that the only way to live is to be in debt. It serves no purpose other than maintaining the status quo.

General strikes and massive boycotts are our tools. We must stop feeding the beast. We must understand that the end game of unbridled capitalism is that a handful of people own everything, while 7 plus billion of us are nothing more than a labor pool, a world of slaves, a resource to be used, exploited or discarded.
