I’m glad I didn’t watch the debate. What are they debating anyway? Spending cuts, deficits and taxes. Why do people listen to that stuff? Do they think that is a way to act like an adult like it shows other people you are a responsible person? One needs to debate about a deficit when the fed can’t even give money away? Cut spending so more money doesn’t get spent to buy stuff? This will help the economy? You would think that after the last bank crisis the press might allow some people who have actual ideas about real things to talk occasionally. But then I wouldn’t be listening anyway so I guess it doesn’t matter. I keep thinking about all the young able bodied Americans who are in prison, school, the armed forces or just unemployed. I guess it really doesn’t take much work to produce enough food and build enough houses for everyone to stay alive. Seems like there are actually way too many houses all sitting empty. Why do people even bother worrying. Even the people who actually have jobs rarely do anything productive. I work in a doctors office and at least 95 percent of the work is shuffling papers. A lot of the people who do actual work like building things or harvesting crops are immigrants used by “business” men to make them an “honest” buck while they are denied many basic human rights. Sometimes I think the people who really hate immigrants are the same people who don’t want to realize that they do nothing for no one. If everyone one washed their own dishes and made their own food no one would have a job. Its kinda sad, technology has made the economy so productive that people really don’t have to work that much but instead of realizing that and making some changes people are led to believe they need to support a larger prison population, more higher education and a bigger military and if they don’t have a job they should just feel really bad and stay out of sight. What else can people really do anymore? There is no public culture in America. The occupy movement looked so weird because it joined human beings together without giving people there marching orders. There is power in people just being together as people. If people went to school to learn how to think and act for themselves and be part of a living culture, if they turned off the TV,realized it was an empty box that had removed their souls and instead of getting up and going someplace else to get told how to be they just turned to their neighbor and started a conversation about what its like to be a human. Imagine people talking about what it’s like to be a imperfect fallible mortal human being able to make decisions and do things out of some inner desire instead of trying to act and feel like some twisted “ideal person”,some manipulated advertising created capitalist statistic analyzed and picked apart by the new technocratic high priests.
A group of researchers interrupted a lecture by EU President Van Rompuy and tagged 95 theses onto the door of the Church where he was speaking.
This list of theses was pinned to the door of the European University Institutein Florence, Italy, while EU President Herman Van Rompuy was delivering a lecture on the political and economic crisis. It was prepared by a group of concerned PhD researchers associated with with the Collettivo Prezzemolo.These are just some issues we came up with — the list is obviously not meant to be exhaustive. For more theses, consult the peoples of Europe!
REAL DEMOCRACY NOW!
The Original ninety-five theses
Out of love for the truth and the desire to bring it to light, the following propositions will be discussed at Wittenberg, under the presidency of the Reverend Father Martin Luther, Master of Arts and of Sacred Theology, and Lecturer in Ordinary on the same at that place. Wherefore he requests that those who are unable to be present and debate orally with us, may do so by letter.
In the Name our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
6. The pope cannot remit any guilt, except by declaring that it has been remitted by God and by assenting to God’s remission; though, to be sure, he may grant remission in cases reserved to his judgment. If his right to grant remission in such cases were despised, the guilt would remain entirely unforgiven.
38. Nevertheless, the remission and participation [in the blessings of the Church] which are granted by the pope are in no way to be despised, for they are, as I have said, the declaration of divine remission.
50. Christians are to be taught that if the pope knew the exactions of the pardon-preachers, he would rather that St. Peter’s church should go to ashes, than that it should be built up with the skin, flesh and bones of his sheep.
51. Christians are to be taught that it would be the pope’s wish, as it is his duty, to give of his own money to very many of those from whom certain hawkers of pardons cajole money, even though the church of St. Peter might have to be sold.
55. It must be the intention of the pope that if pardons, which are a very small thing, are celebrated with one bell, with single processions and ceremonies, then the Gospel, which is the very greatest thing, should be preached with a hundred bells, a hundred processions, a hundred ceremonies.
78. We say, on the contrary, that even the present pope, and any pope at all, has greater graces at his disposal; to wit, the Gospel, powers, gifts of healing, etc., as it is written in I. Corinthians xii.
82. To wit: — “Why does not the pope empty purgatory, for the sake of holy love and of the dire need of the souls that are there, if he redeems an infinite number of souls for the sake of miserable money with which to build a Church? The former reasons would be most just; the latter is most trivial.”
83. Again: — “Why are mortuary and anniversary masses for the dead continued, and why does he not return or permit the withdrawal of the endowments founded on their behalf, since it is wrong to pray for the redeemed?”
84. Again: — “What is this new piety of God and the pope, that for money they allow a man who is impious and their enemy to buy out of purgatory the pious soul of a friend of God, and do not rather, because of that pious and beloved soul’s own need, free it for pure love’s sake?”
85. Again: — “Why are the penitential canons long since in actual fact and through disuse abrogated and dead, now satisfied by the granting of indulgences, as though they were still alive and in force?”
86. Again: — “Why does not the pope, whose wealth is to-day greater than the riches of the richest, build just this one church of St. Peter with his own money, rather than with the money of poor believers?”
88. Again: — “What greater blessing could come to the Church than if the pope were to do a hundred times a day what he now does once, and bestow on every believer these remissions and participations?”
90. To repress these arguments and scruples of the laity by force alone, and not to resolve them by giving reasons, is to expose the Church and the pope to the ridicule of their enemies, and to make Christians unhappy.
Hynkel: I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an Emperor – that’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone, if possible — Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another; human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there’s room for everyone and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone.
The way of life can be free and beautiful.
But we have lost the way.
Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical, our cleverness hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.
The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men, cries out for universal brotherhood for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women, and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people.
To those who can hear me I say, “Do not despair.” The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass and dictators die; and the power they took from the people will return to the people and so long as men die, liberty will never perish.
Soldiers: Don’t give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel; who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don’t hate; only the unloved hate, the unloved and the unnatural.
Soldiers: Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! In the seventeenth chapter of Saint Luke it is written, “the kingdom of God is within man” — not one man, nor a group of men, but in all men, in you, you the people have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness. You the people have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.
Then, in the name of democracy, let us use that power! Let us all unite!! Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give you the future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power, but they lie! They do not fulfill their promise; they never will. Dictators free themselves, but they enslave the people!! Now, let us fight to fulfill that promise!! Let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers, to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness.
Soldiers: In the name of democracy, let us all unite!!!
Wow! This is a really great document. It really sums up all the various threads of dissenting progressive thought in a succinct and comprehension manner.
I entirely support it in it’s entirety.
The Good News
A sound government’s main objective should be to foster and defend a just, safe, and sustainable society in which fairness, curiosity, innovation, and selflessness can flourish.
Those arrested in apparent protest are entitled to have their grievances heard in court so that the necessity and reasonableness of their actions may be determined.
In a just and prosperous society, there is a minimum acceptable standard of living below which no law abiding citizen should fall. That standard must be sufficient to protect children born into such circumstances from being developmentally or psychologically harmed by the experience. The revenue required to provide that failsafe should be drawn from the most prosperous industries and individuals.
Impoverished children must have access to structures that readily allow escape from poverty as adults.
In a just society there can be no birthright to privilege and power. As such, inherited wealth must be capped at a reasonable level, one that broadly distributes the incentive to achieve things of value.
Every child has the right to a high quality education. Familial wealth does not imply a greater right to mental enrichment.
Modern medical technology and knowledge have been produced with overwhelming public investment, and all people are entitled to benefit from them.
Scientific progress is inherently a public good. All people are equally entitled to access the products of public investments in science.
Any order given to violate the constitutional rights of a citizen, or the human rights of a person, is illegitimate and must be refused.
Any order to use potentially damaging force and/or weapons against non-violent people is illegitimate and must be refused.
Mass arrests of unarmed people can result in detentions of no more than 12 hours.
There is no state of unrest that supersedes the three rules above.
All the foreseeable costs of private sector actions must be born by the initiators of those actions. Foreseeable harms (to the planet, society or disinterested individuals) that are the byproduct of profitable activity are, in effect, unjust transfers of wealth that must be mitigated with compensatory transfers of wealth from those that profited, toward the interests of those harmed.
Accountability for all private sector decisions and actions must rest with humans. No inanimate structure can insulate individuals from liability for the externalization of foreseeable harms.
All private fiduciary obligations are subordinate to a person’s public sector duties.
Progressive taxation is the natural remedy for patterns of unproductive wealth concentration.
Markets must be governmentally regulated in the public interest.
When an institution must be publicly bailed out, the individuals involved in producing the failure must not be financially enriched, and must be removed from positions of control. Ill gotten gains must be fully recovered and put toward mitigating the harm of the bailout to the public. In the case that the failure was willfully or negligently caused, punitive damages sufficient to discourage analogous failures should be imposed, and put to the same purpose.
Commercial advertising must exist only in an opt-in context. All people must have the practical ability to avoid commercial advertisement entirely, without losing access to the full array of public goods. Advertising directly to children is unacceptable.
Society functions best when people are protected from unforeseeable misfortune, but otherwise pay the costs, and receive the benefits, of their actions. This societal goal is best served in a very large risk-pool, where managers have no profit-motive to withhold coverage from the unfortunate. As such, insurance should, like policing and fire suppression, be a public function.
All human activities with the potential to substantially affect important, complex biotic and abiotic systems should be presumed harmful until demonstrated to be safe.
Humanity must avoid any substantial alteration of the earth and atmosphere which humanity does not have the technological and economic power to reverse.
No generation has the right to substantially degrade the earth for future generations. To the extent that modern human activity is unsustainable, we have an obligation to transition to sustainable modes, in whatever fashion most rapidly and successfully mitigates total net harm.
The safety, security and wellbeing of citizens can not be made contingent on any unsustainable process such as growth in population, or growth in the economy.
Only creatures can have rights. Inanimate objects and structures can not. In moral and legal terms, humans are the only “people”. Corporations may have privileges granted to them in the public interest. Corporations that habitually produce more public harm than good are not entitled to persist.
There must be an inviolable firewall protecting democratic government from market forces.
All parties and candidates for public office must have an equal platform from which to persuade the public. Wealth must not be proportional to voice.
Lobbying for profit is an offense against democracy.
The gaming and capture of public regulatory structures is inherently hostile to public welfare. Such behavior must be rendered both criminal and unprofitable, lest it become entrenched and elaborated.
Anything that provides legal advantages to wealthier litigants over poorer litigants is an affront to the concept of equal justice under the law.
A government that represents the interests of less than half the governed population can not claim to justly undertake military action.
I don’t have a job, I can’t get the right medication for my depression,
I have no friends that live anywhere close to me and
I have a glimmer of hope.
It’s the last thing that is the most frustrating.
The Occupy movement represents
of a hope
for a new kind of world.
a break into a new kind of world
yet i don’t feel like
I am doing anything to promote it.
I’ve been trying to come up with a film
but i feel i haven’t put enough into it or
I don’t have the proper focus or
I’m just to lame to do anything.
But that’s enough of that,
I’ve come realize, take a lot of work and
I’m only one person working alone
so here’s what I’ve come up with so far.Actually I didn’t do much and this isn’t finished.
I just fell in love with the music though.
I hope to have something much more polished and longer later on.The Music is by the Child Psychology

When will you leave off writing and passing resolutions. When will this endless stream of words and documents cease at last, which threatens to drown our whole movement in needless and worthless scraps of paper? Newspapers, journals and leaflets are filled with tens of hundreds of loud and scathing resolutions that are not worth a broken copeck. Isn’t it time to talk less and act more?
Tell me yourselves – are all of your resolutions of much use? Has your situation been improved by resolutions? Have you helped anyone with your resolutions? No, a thousands times no! Are there any among you who really believe that resolutions can get you anywhere? Each of them is as loud as the last; they are as similiar as drops of water. These resolutions are beginning to act as chloroform on the working masses, stifling their fighting spirit and smothering the living cause of the revolution.
Enough. It’s time to stop this senseless game of words. We must understand that the present order of slavery, an order of violence and repression cannot be destroyed by the jericho trumpet call of resolutions. The walls of capitalism are strong and can only be destroyed when the working class ceases to draft resolutions – resolutions which have little effect on their capitalitst masters – and begins to strengthen it’s class organizations for the earliest possibility transfer of the factories and shops to the hands of the proletariat and the land to the disposal of the labouring peasentry.
Down with words! Down with resolutions! Long live the Deed! Long live the creative work of the toilers.
Anna Vladimirova, “Doloi slovia!”, Golos Truda, 29 september 1917, P. 4.
