55. I like that you distinguish the two differently
and that is a great way to think about it, but I fear most equate the two as singular in effort because they go hand in hand in a way. As the media narrative drives perceptions, I see increasing efforts at doing the very thing the 99% percent and occupy movements started against. Holding ports hostage on the West Coast might be construed as financial terrorism in its own way, at least by the media. The 99% and occupy movements were against the financial terrorism dealt by the 1% upon societies, but now the occupy movement is morphing in a similar direction as the 1%, perhaps. The occupy movement seems to use the the 99% as a mantra and as a part of the ambiguity of the movement itself. I see a correlation of financial terrorism almost hypocritical in a way, and it will feed right into the narrative. Of course, I could be wrong. I am not in the know. Always just my opinion.
