As OWS staggers around the world, gathering some momentum, some direction and thus some ability to do itself great harm, as a collective. All the signs of police brutality show that they can turn it up a long way yet. So far, only thuggery has been on display. They have microwave heaters and sub and super sonic sound cannons to drive you to distraction.
Gathering in such masses, leads only to one result, it is in-evitable. Somewhere, an accident will result in a tragic loss of life….you know the rest of the script.
Of course the ONLY way to kill the beast is to starve it. And expose it to the light.
Really simple. STOP consuming anything but local. Local local. Do without. With less. And steadily withdraw all your money from the beast. Why bother closing accounts? There are rules within rules and hidden clauses in those micro-typed bank legalese you signed when opening your account.
Don’t travel. The masters traversed the universe of endless wonder within. Go home. Build your defenses for a cold winter coming. Surprise them. Melt away. That way, they’ll never know when you might re-group. Keep the element of surprise with you, don’t fall into their newtonian, battering ram trap. They like fights like this. They are fighters.
You be warriors, fight the battle with-in. If the time and circumstance comes, be ready to be a warrior, not a chanter and a fighter.
Never under-estimate your opponent.
Flow with their force. They will fall over each other in a heap.
If you need a rallying cry, let me give you one.
We are all ruled by symbol. Word comes after. Symbol first.
The symbol of the psycopathic male arche-type is the Suite and Tie. If it’s a suit and tie, it’ll probably lie. The tie, a self-slipped knot on the throat, never able to speak wholly or the truth. Look at the action. It is such a tell, yes? And the suit, always, at the hands of a good tailor, make a fat, florid person look like superman. Well almost. It’s a lie. The suit and tie clothe the lie.
The symbol of corrupted capitalism to me. Neck choke, body enslaved, restricted, uncomfortable, habit engrained…..look at Conan and Jon Stewart and MLK and all politicians and business heads and mafiosos and every wannabe…. on TV, every pundit/analyst…. suite and tie. Burn them, rip them….remove the yoke of the symbol.
It is really powerful.
Ladies, I’d like you to consider lipstick.
Look at it, look at the symbolism of it…. a red tip sliding out of a round sheath, promptly put to your lips.
Perhaps a picture will suffice:
Eh? Enough said? It’s that obvious.
Ecologically dispose your lipsticks and never wear one again.
Symbols are that powerful.
Just an idea.
Good luck all around. Going to need it.
I’ve been tie-free since 2003 and lipstick-free for-ever.
