Occupy Wall Street Rediscovers the Radical Imagination

Occupy Wall Street Rediscovers the Radical Imagination

The young people protesting in Wall Street and beyond reject this vain economic order. They have come to reclaim the future.

Why are people occupying Wall Street? Why has the occupation – despite the latest police crackdown – sent out sparks across America, within days, inspiring hundreds of people to send pizzas, money, equipment and, now, to start their own movements called OccupyChicago, OccupyFlorida, in OccupyDenver or OccupyLA?

/Corbis)There are obvious reasons. We are watching the beginnings of the defiant self-assertion of a new generation of Americans, a generation who are looking forward to finishing their education with no jobs, no future, but still saddled with enormous and unforgivable debt. Most, I found, were of working-class or otherwise modest backgrounds, kids who did exactly what they were told they should: studied, got into college, and are now not just being punished for it, but humiliated – faced with a life of being treated as deadbeats, moral reprobates.


Is it really surprising they would like to have a word with the financial magnates who stole their future?

Shaktas, you are a condescending Jezebel who is trying to make the best of the blackness of the darkness of your mortal condition. No question you are being duped by your own witchcraft unto death.


The World of Death is safe with Shaktas.


John 8:51 He that keeps my sayings shall never see death.


What do you surmise Shak?

nope. no surprise. this is what i can only hope to talk my brother out of. the puppet president tells you to go to school. hmmm and how do i pay for that? oh yeah, they walk you rite threw it. but no need to mention that there won't be any jobs when your done with school.

i woke up when i was 12. i was looking into the sign of the beast. i found a site the pretty much had a walk through of how to deprogram. it was really an amazing thing that i stumbled across this info at such a young age. i was raised a christian, so i understand the role they play in this mess where in. it was stated in the bible. here watch. nothing about the bible though.

Michael honey, Jesus doesn't need the stupid,useless prayers of humans. Only humans believe that. It's like amoebas thinking that Humans contemplate them and their pointless wishes every second of every day.

Hopefully Jesus is somewhere smoking a bowl, watching cartoons, making love to men and women in true orgy fashion, and waiting for the stupid Earth folk to arrive en masse on a mushroom cloud.


What do you think Mikey?


Smile dear. We're all gonna die in some fashion. Jesus understands that the dead will be okay.
