Occupy is a movement that is part of a larger movement that started before Occupy.

I strongly support Occupy and would not suggest they change one iota. But there are millions of people that want to fix America that dont fit with Occupy. I dont know who is behind moveon but I havent yet seen any evidence that they are run by the enemy. We need to be united against the enemy, the oligarchs. They would like nothing better than to see us fighting among ourselves.

I will agree that moveon hasnt been successful, but that is no reason to exclude them. I have participated in moveon protests before Occupy.

Occupy isnt moveon and moveon isnt Occupy, but as far as I can see, we all want the same thing.

Be suspicious of those that would turn us against each other.

Looks to me like we are having trouble with the phrase "right wing fantasy."

IMHO the Right fantasizes about a world like Atlas Shrugged and not Avatar. Sounds like Hunger Games is about a Right Wing controlled world as seen from the Left and not the Right. IMO the Right fears a world like Hunger Games (from what I have heard as I havent seen it) and believes it would happen if the Intellectually Elite took over. They believe that the Financial Elite will give them a world like Atlas Shrugged.

Corporations are not people and do not have morals and

we shouldnt expect them to. They are entities that we allow to exist to benefit WeThePeople (WTP). When they start to operate against the benefits of WTP, they need to be prosecuted and executed if necessary.

I does us no good to blame the soulless corporations as we are responsible for controlling them. If you turn a bull loose in a china shop, dont blame the bull.

I know I am lecturing to the choir, but just wanted to say that.
