Chilling side thought: what is the 99% campaign trying to achieve?

By | October 19, 2011
Is it a regime change in the US? If so, it seems to follow the precedent that the middle east has set.

Is it a economic change in the world market? If so, there could be extreme consequences worldwide… not to mention all the other spheres (eg. environmental, distribution, as well as corporate, financial, judiciary, and political) that would be affected – and I'm not sure if even the most thought-out futurists have a good solution for that.
