 "I was in London for example, when the first " I guess it was about a quarter of a million, building to almost a million people took to the streets protesting the Iraq war.   And I was stunned.   You couldn't move.   The only other time I've been in London when it was that bad was the Fireworks Display on New Year's Eve, when my wife and I were down in the Thames River and even the B obbies on horseback couldn't move. The horses couldn't move, because they were immobilized by the mass of people around them. That's the kind of phenomenon I'm talking about. When we suddenly wake up one morning and find out, essentially, that the middle class on down is frankly fed up.   And they've figured out intuitively or intellectually, that the Oligarchy, that the corporate powers that run this country, for example, are not conducive to their interests. [laughing]   And they wake up !     Right now you've got " I find this phenomenon absolutely " it's just unbelievable to see when you go to some place like Southern Ohio, or   Southern Pennsylvania, or out West where I just was, in Eastern Washington State, in Northern Idaho, and you find people who     say things like " I'm going to vote for Mitt Romney, because Mitt Romney is going to restore this economy. '  And you look at them and you say " How? '  And they can't tell you how, because they can't tell you what's wrong with this economy.   They can't even tell you that, for example, our gross domestic product used to be seventy five percent [75%] manufacturing and maybe twelve percent [12%] services, and that our gross domestic product today is seventy-eight percent [ 78%]   services and less than eleven percent [ 11%] manufacturing.   And they can't grasp that, what we've done to this country, what the corporate leadership of this country has done to us.   It's not just exporting jobs to China.   It's rape, pillaging, and plundering the country, largely the middle class, and the banks have been their conduits for doing so.   And the banks are largely responsible for storing these trillions of dollars of taxpayers' money.   They don't understand!   But one day they will.   One day they will.   And when they do, Katie, bar the door !   

Rob Kall:    What you're saying reminds me of conversations I've had with what happened in Argentina, where it was when the leadership there shut the banks for the middle class, and hundreds of thousands went out on the streets.   Where in Venezuela, where they raised the price of gas, after it had long been really expensive prices, and they were flooded with gas in the waters off their shores.   It's when, it's almost like what happens is, when the government makes a mistake, and finally there's a viral recognition and realization that the middle class is being screwed, and the people just explode into the streets.

Lawrence Wilkerson:

Let me tell you about a conversation I had with a Congressman, which I think was very revealing.   I was talking to him about the National Defense Authorization Act, and the portion of it at that time that would do away with "Posse Comitatus," and essentially allow the military to enforce domestic law.   And I asked the question very pointedly, " this is not about terrorism, it's not about potential martial law to fight terrorists. This is about Occupy Wall Street. '  He nodded his head up and down. I said, "I understand now !"  The Congress was frightened!   The Congress was frightened that the next place they'd Occupy would be the Capitol Building.   And so they wanted the Armed Forces of the United States to be able to react in the event such a thing should happen.  

Rob Kall:    And who was this you said you spoke to you about this?

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
