We are the 99%. Occupy Your mind.Hopefully the idea behind NOW is clear enough that you are chomping at the bit with ideas of your own, or you are at least at a point where you would like to understand more in terms of your personal situation. After all NOW is about the life of each and every individual on the planet. To that end the source for this website is available by email request so that you can create your own website with your own topics etc...
The Occupy movement is many things to many people. We all have our own perspective on what was being protested, but if you take a good close look, or even better, go and have a listen (I went a couple of times), you will find that the "greed" that they are highlighting touches absolutely every facet of our lives. There's just no getting away from it, this is the world we live in and there are those making incredible amounts of money that keep the majority of people in debt. There are those who call Occupy hypocrites for using the products and services provided by "the man" and it is an understandable position, right up to the point where it isn't. What are they expecting that Occupy will do if they obtain any power? Do they really believe that Occupy will drag us back to the 19th century? I know for sure that this is a view shared by quite a few people. Fortunately once explaining NOW this attitude changes in a large number of cases. We have everything we need today, although we also have a planet where millions of people are starving to death. There's no other way to put it and at least Occupy are trying to redress that balance. If you can't grasp that simple concept, then you are an idiot. There is no other way of putting it. Why are you worth more than someone else? when it takes all of us to produce the products and services that have taken us to where we are today.
The banking system, oh dear, money plucked out of thin air (where else does it come from, do we trade with aliens?) and spread around the world as seen fit by banking institutions. So we can print money, but EVERY country requires a percentage of their population to be unemployed to help control inflation. Talk about your catch 22. Those simple facts alone show how ridiculous the banking system is. People die where we can print money if we really want toallowing us to avoid the vast majority of those deaths. Denial of those facts only highlights the idiocy and tagging on the strapline "but that's just the way things are" is nothing more than closing your eyes to what is obviously happening.
As mentioned earlier, Occupy is many things to many people and I believe that NOW and Occupy compliment each other. I sincerely hope that Occupy read NOW, as in my opinion, a single goal/Silver Bullet is all that has been missing from the Occupy Movement. Make no mistake, the experts are wrong/lieing, there is a Silver Bullet!!!!! I, for 1, am grateful that Occupy are fighting for all of us. My sincerest thanks to Occupy, keep up the exceptional work.
