What began as a small group of protesters expressing their grievances about economic inequities last month from a park in New York City has evolved into an online conversation that is spreading across the country on social media platforms.

Some 900 events have been set up on Meetup.com, and blog posts and photographs from all over the country are popping up on the WeArethe99Percent blog on Tumblrfrom people who see themselves as victims of not just a sagging economy but also economic injustice.
“I don’t want to be rich. I don’t want to live a lavish lifestyle,” wrote a woman on Tumblr, describing herself as a college student worried about the burden of student debt. “I’m worried. I’m scared, thinking about the future shakes me. I hope this works. I really hope this works.”
The online conversation has grown at the same time that street protests have taken place in several other cities last week, including Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington. A Web site, Occupy Together, is trying to aggregate the online conversations and the off-line activities.

Good news: Occupy Wall Street has raised the issue of central banking and performed an increasingly serious educative service. It's given libertarian concerns a platform which maybe able to support a serious discussion about central banking. Occupy Wall Street in this fashion, can be looked on as a beginning not an end.
Bad news: Occupy Wall Street itself continues to be a confused, unfocused protest. There seem to be too many dissonant voices, and increasingly they seem of the Leftist variety. In fact, unions, Democratic politicians and leftists of every stripe and variety are seemingly trying to reconfigure Occupy Wall Street in order to claim it for themselves.
Occupy Wall Street SHOULD be a good vehicle to use to protest central bank practices, first-and-foremost. Private banks and trading firms have been around for thousands of years, at least since Greek times. But modern, fiat-money central-banking has drastically increased the ruin of the West's industrial and economic system.

Communism is Godless, and soon falls prey to human frailties; lust for power, greed, lack of compassion, deception to gain its own ends. It is crafty. It is subversive, It uses people's fear and anger,It speaks lies with beautiful words, painting illusive pictures, uses mind control of the unwary, the needy, the weak, the angry and ignorant.
It foments chaos and division, not harmony - in order to take control.
