Occupy at 90 Days – Why Are We Here?

Article image

As I read many posts from around the world, I see that the Arab Spring has morphed into a worldwide movement in protest of mal-governance that has robbed the world of its life blood:  wealth.

Some of this wealth has been appropriated by governments like Egypt.  In Egypt the military sector IS the military/industrial complex owing to its conversion of military enterprises into civilian enterprises (even farming).   

The amount of profligate spending is certainly a function of governance and this “governance” aggravated the greed and thievery shown by the “governed” financial elements.  In America we have a disaster of proportions not seen since the great depression of 1928.

No wonder the people are marching.  Homeless and unemployed people are a danger we cannot afford in a civil society and the Occupy movement is the first stirring of a giant.

About carlos

I'm a curious person, of reasonable intellect, "on the beach" (retired) and enjoying my interest in anthropology, language, civil rights, and a few other areas. I've been a hippie/student/aerospace tech writer in the '60s, a witness to the Portuguese revolution in the ‘70s, a defense test engineer and witness to the Guatemalan genocide in the '80s, and a network engineer for an ISP in the '90s. Now I’m a student and commentator until my time is up. I've spent time under the spell of the Mesoamerican pyramids and the sweet sound of the Portuguese language. I've lived in Europe, traveled in Brazil, Central America, Iceland, New Zealand, and other places. My preferred mode of travel is with a backpack and I eat (almost) anything local. Somehow, many of the countries I have been to have had civil unrest (for which I was not responsible). I'm open to correspond with anyone who might share my liberal, humanist interests. I live in San Buenaventura, California.
