As most of you probably know, the “Wall Street Protests” have pretty much spread all around the world. I do admire the courage of those who are involved in these protests. The message that I hear from these groups is that they are done having the banking and corporate elite taking all the wealth at the expense of the people. I see these protests as a way for people to send a message to the elite.
I do want to challenge those individuals who want to change the system. I believe that revolutions throughout history have failed mainly because people revolt but then end up replacing the system they revolted against, with the exact same system. Then over time, the system then corrupts again and consumes those that forced the changes in the beginning, resulting in the process repeating itself. I believe that if we are to brake the cycle, we must first take a look at some core root causes.
