Some things should not, indeed cannot, be ignored:
This matters. This is important.
The merger between the U.S. government and the earth’s most powerful corporate interests was not a “hostile” takeover by any means. The government, the TBTF banks, and other corporate interests use each other, they’re happy about it!, and because they do the political system in the U.S. becomes a little more corrupt each day. Destroying any real democratic representation, destroying the little guy’s recourse to the courts, undermining the very fabric of our neighborhoods, and stripping the 99% of their voice.
The only question, or at least the only question that matters, is how to unwind this unholy combination.
As it stands, whether you’re a libertarian or a socialist, your preferred policies cannot be implemented. The crony capitalist ship of state will continue to steam toward the berg until the federal government is forced, through direct action, to rid itself of its corporate backers. And the corporate sector is forced, through direct action, to stop pulling the levers of government for its own benefit.
I don’t know the endgame of this movement and, frankly, don’t want to. All I know is that #occupywallstreet and occupytogether.org matter. They matter a lot. They deserve support.
