Save the World


In my opinion, the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement could save the world.

“Did you say, “Save the World?”

You might reply: “Green Fingered Skinner you are a flawed optimist!  Lord knows, nothing can save the world, not even GOD.”

I believe the Occupy Wall Street movement is a “Call to Arms”; a blow-back movement for American citizens to express their displeasure(s) with the conditions we live under, like our dysfunctional government in Washington D.C., the rampant greed of reckless corporations as exploitative and deceitful purveyors of goods and services seeking only profits, blind to the social consequence of their actions, as epitomized by banks on Wall Street.

Sprinkle into this mix of unease the stress level of moral minded citizens, laboring under siege, watching the ‘Disappearing American Dream’, like minded workers suffering long term high unemployment, the same American workers forced to struggle with an unfair taxing system, forged under a cloud of invasive rules and over done regulations handed us as law by a bunch out of touch re-election minded politicians elected to govern, but who, for generations now, have failed to serve the people with traditional American values of noble leadership and fair minded foresight.

Thinkers know it is time for change.

‘Occupy Wall Street’ is a passive and peaceful rally point for political change.

Hurray for civilization!

It is our duty to keep the movement going.  We must feed the fire of peace. We must make change happen.  We must pay it forward.

In view of the perpetual Middle East Crisis, the ongoing world financial collapse, the new awakening of ‘Arab Spring, the multitude of non-functional governments across the world ruined by failed leadership, people are tired of the misdirection of hope, and the never ending opportunity cost of the failure of it all.

Each of us gets only one life and one lifetime to live.

Unlike the recent riots in the U.K., this movement may turn out to be a spiritual bonanza for people across the world, not a disgrace of destruction by the downtrodden.

“Occupy Wall Street’ is a battle cry of ‘Change’ via ‘Peace’.

In my opinion, the media in America remains clueless to the intent of this movement as media needs headlines and pictures to thrive, and these demonstrations are non-violent and peaceful, not as of yet ‘Newsworthy’ by any definition.

Change is conducive to good.  Politics and politicians are the globe must serve the people, not the other way around.  Real change requires time. Leaders across the world need to understand people want peace and freedom, EVERYWHERE!

Change is part of the human condition. The world needs to change for the better.  If the world does not change for the better there may be no humanity worth saving.

All readers should rally to save the world from itself.  The alternative is infinite nothingness.

  • Just curious, how exactly does this movement mean to make things better? What basic/radical reforms it seeks? Have Americans suddenly realized that they don’t need capitalism the way they have been living with for centuries?

  • The ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement is about reforming a broken system of governance and business. Many citizens agree growing government control and/or corporate power over consumers is unsettling, unjust, and unwanted.
    America needs change. The world needs change.

    Don’t you agree?

    Many citizens across America and the world, contend this generation of capitalists are greedy, immoral, and passé. 

    Tell me, what is the price of a ticket from Peshawar to New York, these days?

    Do you see the practical point? 

    BTW, if you substitute ‘War’ for ‘Capitalism’ in the hidden statement in your last question, I might agree with you.
