Mexicans are cleaning up our mess

Tired of living under the yoke of criminal gangs and corrupt public servants, groups of Mexican citizens are taking matters into their own hands. Armed vigilantes have stormed the town of Paracuaro, headquarters of the Knights Templar drug gang. A 600-strong band of rebels rounded up and arrested the area’s police, whom they accuse of being on the payroll of cartels like the Templar.  (more…)

Occupy Wall Street…… What’s Next?

Scott Star
We Are Change

Occupy Wall Street has produced so many positive things. It has joined people together, to moved them out onto the street, voicing their opinions. It has gone worldwide, with a focus on greed, which we can all feel and see, and have many ways to expressing its cause and effect.

I will keep my thoughts simple. People have realized that moral values must change. The road we are on is not sustainable. This machine must be stopped. I will use the word machine to describe the many faceted structures which we find our world in control, as Mario Savio said so eloquently. Terms and words like, the ninety-nine percent, the one percent, end the fed, fiat currency, corporate greed, banks, and democracy, are just a few that has come to the forefront to describe this controlling machine.

We need to question everything, to open our minds, and change. Why do we live in a world of competition, instead of cooperation? America is democratic, but have we forgotten that we are a republic? Is democracy a mob rule? Many questions have brought us to challenge this current level of greed. Are we getting to the edge of a cliff? Is it time to stop, and look back? Is it time for a paradigm shift? Or is it time to do both? To look back at something that can bring about a paradigm shift for society.

So what’s next? What should we go back to for a paradigm shift? Is there a Pandora’s Box for the 21st century that will put back all the bad that was released? To put back all that Occupy Wall Street is rebelling against, all the problems with banks, money, corporations, and governments. Stop all corruption that seems to be leading us to a New World Order, and elevate our moral values. Did we forget what we need to do? I think so. We need to go back to the time where everything changed. Have we forgotten about 9/11? Just because the tenth anniversary came and went, do we put it to the side. This is the Pandora’s box of the 21st century. Exposing 9/11 will expose all the faceted structures keeping us captive, because that machine is responsible and must be held accountable. The next step for Occupy Wall Street should be a full focus on 9/11. It will expose this controlling machine we all wish to stop.

So what stops many from doing this? It’s the negative driving force that controls the majority; fear. The majority does not see the magic that was performed on 9/11, as the controlling machine is making sure they do not see or learn about the trick. The trick is yet to be discovered because the majority cannot come to grips with the concept that they were diverted from the truth. The lie is so much easier to handle. The truth takes time to find and understand. You have to make a guided effort. We all need to put forth the proposition that 9/11 exposure and accountability have always been the step to stop the madness in the world.
