Why Occupy Wall Street When We Have The Farmers Market?


The occupy Wall Street movement has been a great wake up call. Protest movements all to often become the action itself. We expend all of our energy and attention into shouting 'Fire Fire" Yes our economic system is way out of balance, now what?
Now that we have the worlds attention on the problem it is absolutely vital that we bring all of our collective energies,attentions and ACTIONS to viable solution.
I truly do not believe Wall Street to be the evil empire, plotting and conniving our collective doom. It is simply an economic system that it failing not only the people but also Wall Street. Our corporate economic system has become dangerously top heavy. What we are now witnessing is the subsequent collapse. The ramifications of this global travesty are world poverty and environmental carnage, amongst many others.
IF WE ARE SHOUTING AND SCREAMING IN THE STREETS FOR A RADICAL SHIFT IN OUR ECONOMIC STRUCTURE, THEN WE MUST BUILD IT OURSELVES.
The most exciting thing about this fact is that we all have the immediate ability to achieve it. If we all make a radical shift in our consumer habits. BUY LOCAL! Create local industries. Get down to your farmers market, your craft fairs and your small local stores. Take a good look at every penny you spend and figure out a way of spending it in YOUR COMMUNITY.
We must not seek to collapse the corporate and banking systems. There are so many services that they attend that we need and enjoy. Such as mass transportation, Hospitals, computers, roads etc etc etc. What we must urgently achieve is a massive rebuilding of our local economy so that we become the foundation and strength which will then guide and design our corporate entities. We may then find integrity.
IT IS NOT AND HAS NEVER BEEN US AND THEM.
IT IS US,WE THE PEOPLE
