    Anyone who criticizes the Wall Street Protest is a schmuck with an agenda or just a schmuck.   Corporations are not people.   Institutions are not individuals.   And anyone who is critical of people in the street is critical of the First Amendment and is thereby critical of the foundation of this dream of freedom called the U.S.A., the Boston Tea Party and all American acceleration toward liberty since.  

    There are a few definitions I think these schmucks should learn to understand the principles at work in the street, as many of them clearly operate under a worldview constituted of hypocrisy and doublethink.   They are likely the same people who support corporatism and global militarism, but scorn socialism and activism.   There are a few isms these schmucks who criticize the clear protests ought to know a little more about so they might understand what is going on in the world.  

    Socialism; the strict pyramidal hierarchical political framework of the United States military, public schools, post office, etcetera.   Capitalism; the pyramidal framework of the U.S.A economy.   Socialism protects capitalism.   Oligarchical collectivism; the linking of institutions over individuals.   Political activism; the Wall Street protests are one example.

    Oligarchical collectivism instigates political activism.   It is the linking of pyramidal institutions of capitalism with those of corporatism and militarism that spawned resentment against the entire system stemming from Wall Street.   The 1% is the oligarchy, the 99% are the masses of individuals under the ardent control of the oligarchical collectivism of multiple institutions.

    Any schmuck who criticizes any protest, especially a protest as specific and clear as the Wall Street protests, aimed at the multiple oligarchies, should learn what is really going on.   Institutions are not individuals, nearly every individual on earth is being exploited to support the greed of oligarchical institutions.   The protests are clear enough when isms are understood.   My sign reads: Flatten the Oligarchy!
