What is Really Behind the 99% Movement?

It is right that the so called 99% are mad as hell and want "Change".  I'm starting to dislike that word "Change", because the more things change the worse things get. The reason for the confusion about the OWS movement is not something that is obvious to most people.  

On one hand, most people would agree that the bailing out of banks was a bad move as it placed that debt onto the people. We now know the government practices insider trading and the reasons for war are not what we are told.  Add to that, student debt, the housing problems, unemployment and a lack of hope. Some pretty good reasons to be totally pissed off. 

On the other hand, these types of protests will accomplish little for the 99%. With no real leadership and now with the new laws for indefinite detainment of American citizens without trial, I'm not sure if a leader could be put into place for very long.  On top of that, you have  the burden of extra policing cost,  ugly tent cities, kids getting hurt, inconveniences to other citizens and the hijacking of the movement by the very people who  to some degree are responsible for the current state of affairs.

Most people are most likely to think that this is a random movement, a sudden uprising by the down trodden, spoiled youth, the poor and neglected and various other sympathizers. The OWS movement or this type of protest was calculated  many years ago in the late 60's. It was started with the Cloward Piven Strategy, where by,  people interested in making the USA a socialist nation and insuring a minimum income for all it's citizens went about recruiting whom ever they could to add to the welfare rolls.  They basically thought by increasing the welfare burden it would cripple the capitalist system and bring in a socialist government, whereby, all citizens had a right to a minimum income, regardless of any conditions or input to the economy.

I know the above may seem a stretch to most people and I hope I can  keep this short and articulate it well enough to hold your interest so that you will see what is happening around you. Cloward and Piven were disciples of Saul Alinski an activist who Obama and Hillary Clinton also admired.  Alinski's was a community organizer , writer and political activist. He was probably a good man and cared for the common people. He never referred to himself as a communist or any other political organization. However, he was the type who may have thought,  "Any means to an end".  That is my own opinion, however I don't see how his ideas could be carried out any other way.

He wrote, in  his 1946 "Reveille for Radicals", A Peoples Organization lives in a world of hard reality. It lives in the midst of smashing forces, dashing struggles, sweeping cross-currents, ripping passions, conflict, confusion, seeming chaos, the hot and the cold, the squalor and the drama, which people prosaically refer to as life and students describe as 'society'.

When we look at the OWS movement the above statement fits so precisely with it. This is not a coincidence, it is an observation a truth, but most importantly it can be made to happen.  That is what we are all observing around the entire world, mass protest, war, conflicting information, poverty, drug abuse, homelessness, religious radicalism, sex scandals, weakening alliances. 
The events of today are not random, they are planned and to what means, I can only speculate, but I feel it won't be to my or your advantage. 

The protesters are being played as are most of us and people all around the globe. They are "Useful idiots" being used to accomplish some goal by those who hold the reigns of power.   

If you want more proof we are being screwed,  if you have investments or concerns for the future  you should listen to this interview.  I hope you do. If you don't want to listen to all of it,  at least listen from 15:00 to 18:00.
