To protect and serve the 1% and kick the crap out of everybody else

“If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stomping on a human face -- forever.” George Orwell, 1984

So disillusionment with the powers that be, anger and outrage at bailouts for banks and austerity for everyone else, disappointment with the lack of economic opportunity and excessive debt that can consequently never be paid back, are among the reasons that have led to the formation of the  #OWS (Occupy Wall Street) movement. After two months of peaceful protest and civil disobedience, the protesters have been attacked by the police in a concerted action across the country. Now, the police are obviously here to protect and serve the top one percent of the population that has most of the income and to kick the shit out of anybody else who dares to dissent or protest. Hyperbole, you say? Looking at the following pictures will make even the most law-abiding citizen cringe with disgust, disillusionment and despair. These emotions should quickly give way to outrage, anger and the determination to DO SOMETHING, anything, to fight not only against this level of crass brutality that is not to be accepted or tolerated, but against the corrupt, destructive finance driven junta that seems to have taken over the countries of the West, in what Simon Johnson called the quiet coup.
