The Occupy movement has captured the imagination and interest of millions worldwide. I get emails everyday from people asking questions like “Is it a good thing?”, “Should we join their ranks to bring about change?” The movement’s attraction is rooted in popular outrage over corruption and concentration of power; what many call corporatism. The movement claims that the world will hear us when we occupy the streets.
The Occupy movement has a very appealing message, after all:
Who likes corruption?
Who doesn’t want to be heard?
But there are shadowy figures lurking under the surface of the Occupy movement and the very roots of it are lawless, counter-productive, and revolutionary.
Consider the word itself – Occupy
Occupy refers to taking control or ownership of something that others claim control or ownership over. This is, by definition, either an act of stealing or an act of war.
Consider the company you keep
The financial and tactical support required to launch multiple coordinated mass demonstrations in cities across the country requires financial backing. There is evidence that one of the significant financiers is George Soros, a confirmed globalist, who has a track record of ruining economies and wielding enormous political influence.
There is evidence that the tactical and organizational effort is coming from former executives of Acorn which has been busted for helping set up child prostitution rings and committing voter fraud and which constantly re-invents itself in service of leftist causes.
Consider the threat of Socialism
Common demands from the groups include redistribution of wealth, the destruction of the free market economy, and socialism: global socialism.
Socialism is a fancy word for government sanctioned stealing and in its purest form, results in an all-powerful central government that can take private property and human lives with complete impunity.
There is a multi-step process that communist use to gain power over a country. This process has played out over and over throughout the last century and is the process is advancing quickly in America today.
The Occupy movement fits perfectly into the “de-stabilize” phase of the process. Suffice it to say, you would not like what comes next so it would be best not to co-operate with the destabilization.
Consider the rule of law
By design, the highest law of the land in the USA is the constitution and the amendments to the constitution. If our political process is broken, corrupted, and in need of repair, we have legal means at our disposal. If, in the next election, we elect people to Federal, State, and Local political offices who believe the constitution means what it says, then we can reclaim America peacefully.
We can and must address the issues that are fueling the popular outrage. We can investigate and prosecute criminals and corruption at the highest levels of government, intelligence, military, and yes – the big banks. We can return to sound money and decommission the Federal Reserve. We can impeach judges who are legislating from the bench instead of holding government accountable to the letter of the law of the constitution.
We can dramatically reduce Federal government spending and taxes by shifting the current responsibilities that are not outlined in the enumerated powers of the constitution back to the States as is required by the Tenth Amendment.
We can create an environment that favors the creation of small businesses. We can bring our troops home and secure our borders. We can pull out of the United Nations and can stop the implementation of Agenda 21 and Codex Alimentarius . We can even elect constitution clinging Sheriffs that will arrest Federal agents that are denying local citizens of their constitutional rights. We can de-fund unconstitutional agencies like the TSA, DHS, and the EPA.
How can we get started on all this?
Consider the man in the mirror
Michael Jackson had a hit song on an unlikely topic, personal commitment to change. It was called the Man in the Mirror.
The song lyrics state:
“I am starting with the man in the mirror, I am asking him to make a change. If we want to make the world a better place, we got to look at ourselves and make that change.”
At many Occupy style events, we assemble people who could be starting businesses, doing charity work, or volunteering for political campaigns for good candidates. What do they do while assembled? Well they whip each other up into a frenzy, the defecate on police officers, they trespass and make public parks unusable, and at times they block the access of people who are trying to go to work to be productive.
Is there a better way to make the world a better place? You bet there is.
How can we productively occupy the man in the mirror?
There are plenty of productive things to do to affect change without creating an environment of social unrest that is conducive to lawless revolution.
If people want to diminish the power and influence of the globalist banks that control our political process, then they can move their savings to smaller community banks. If they want to reduce the influence of the Federal Reserve they can support candidates that will audit the fed and they can transfer their savings out of Federal Reserve Notes and into precious metals.
If people want to combat the corruption that is rampant between America’s political elites and corporate elites, they can “buy local” and support their neighbors business instead of buying the cheapest goods from the big box stores filled with products from global corporations.
If people want to be heard, then then everyone (including pastors ) should talk with their neighbors about public policy and educate them about natural law, inalienable rights, and the constitution so that when they vote, they can choose candidates wisely.
If people want political representation that represent their interest and not global or corporate interest, then get involved in supporting candidates (at all levels, especially state and local) whose track record indicates fidelity with constitutional principles. Stop letting the media choose your candidates for you and stop voting based on rhetoric. Stop voting for the lesser of two evils.
Outrage is growing and will continue to grow as our unsound currency devalues. Will the outrage progress into social chaos and disorderly regime change which is highly likely to result in a totalitarian government?
Or will Americans use every peaceful means at their disposal including the purse, the ballot box, the pulpit, the water cooler,and their knees (prayer) to bring about orderly restoration of sound money, a sound economy, and the rule of law?
It’s up to you. What will you do?
