“Occupy Wall Street” – Still To Happen
What started a few weeks ago on Wall Street was revolutionary. People gathered in frustration to protest the growing, long-standing inequality of the rich (“the 1%”) and the rest of us (“the 99%”).
In my opinion, what will be more revolutionary is the response.
The Best and Worst is Yet to Come.
Today, just 3 weeks since Occupy Wall Street started, there are now tens of thousands of people organizing in 120 cities across the US. In fact, a global “Occupy” is mounting, scheduled for October 15th.
I fear one of two outcomes. Either (1) the people will lose steam or (2) police will launch a breath-taking crackdown to quell it. It’s a waiting game until one of the two happens.
What are your thoughts?
Where do you see this going?
Are you joining, in whatever city you’re in?
Update: A Run On The Bank
This might sound just like what happened in 1929, leading to the Great Depression. There’s a mass of people going to the banks, wanting to close out their accounts. And, like in 1929, the banks are turning people away, denying them their savings. This comes with banks continuing to report Billions in profits per quarter.
