be making a point if I was saying it was impossible
to move on up, which I am not. Are you suggesting that all these people start their own businesses instead of protesting? There's about 40 million people in the US who are unemployed or underemployed. And there's less money circulating right now. It's simply not a realistic solution for all of them. Besides, who's to say some of them are not
working on their own businesses simultaneously?
No, I'm' not suggesting that. But getting off your ass, so you can go protest, on your ass, doesn't accomplish anything. It creates more and more hate, and more and more cultural clash. People protesting against what they don't want. What people should be doing is creating unity and getting people together to CREATE, not to DESTROY. These people who are leading these things can create foundations, charities, technical schools, and companies to employee these protesters. But no, instead they are out protesting the system. Which is where you are putting the blame on. You say I put words in your mouth, but who are you blaming things on? Obviously not the people. There isn't a solution for all of them. There is never a solution for everything. No one here is trying to claim that. But, 40,000,000 people, and non of them can do anything? All the people protesting, and non of them can actually accomplish anything on their own? There aren't any Steve Pavillans out there? The leaders of the protests, aren't capable of doing something better then protesting? Bunker Roy: Learning from a barefoot movement | Video on TED.com
Look at that guy. THAT is a leader. Not these wanabee leaders on the streets. Getting people to actually create things out of nothing. No excuses. No education from most of the people. Barely any money. Yet, some how THEY manage to do it, but Westerners, with access to almost anything, can't?
Now that Obama is trying to take hold of the groups, we will see what happens.
