It has become a movement. And it brings with it a lot of questions. If you have noticed in the last year or two, there have been mass movements on a large scale all over the world. Most of them are uniformly aided and encouraged by the world media as a whole.
And everyone sides with the people on the street. No exceptions, but for the looters on the Britain’s streets.
The question is:
Are people fed up?
Is it a fleeting trend?
Both, actually. If you had cared to look closely you would notice that all these movements worldwide including Wall Street are headless. I mean, there are no leaders.
There is no Gandhi. There is no Martin Luther King. There is nobody. Jus’ a collection of people.
And one more interesting thing of note is that they are not fighting to abolish discrimination, attain freedom or to beget power, but they are protesting and walking on the streets to plead for help to survive.
And the people in power are clueless or unable.
It is sad. Very sad.
Capitalism, communism, socialism, and all other ‘isms’ are of no use if the people, who vote Presidents to power don’t have a roof over their head or food on their plate.
Now, the question is why Wall Street?
Because their perception is that the stock brokers and other elite of the street got bailed out while they were the ones responsible for the chaos in the first place.
Is there a solution in sight?
Yes, there is.
It may sound very simple, but remember that the perfect answer to a complicated question is a simple answer.
Work hard. Save. Throw away your credit card. Spend only the money you earned. Balance diet. Exercise for 20 minutes a day. Go to sleep early. Wake up early.
