Who are these vandals?

Who are these vandals?  Who are these menaces? Who are these outcasts, who have marred the beauty of the beautiful sidewalk by our beautiful fountain in our beautiful park?

Well…let me tell you…

We are the 99%.  We are the remainder in your equation, the one that calculates the markets based only on an optimal outcome — and only optimal to some, the few who control 35% of this country’s wealth.  The few who attack socially-responsible economics as radical-commie-socialism.  The few who attackparticipatory democratic politics as lefty-anarchist-utopianism.  The few of you who as you gather more and more wealth to you, you become fewer and fewer and undermine the source of justified power.

And while you become fewer, we become stronger.  We become more, we become many, we become a movement that is stronger than you can imagine.  And when we come together on Wall Street that day, then there shall be a time for us, the 99%, the crowd, the polis, the People, to truly identify ourselves.  For despite the world’s ever-rushing onwards into oblivion, WE shall make TIME for ourselves.

But there is only enough time before a strength reserved, a strength deferred becomes a strength that is broken and withered.

Will YOU, fellow members of the 99%, answer this call?  Why will YOU #occupyWallStreet?  And WHERE?  As we believe that Wall Street is ALL streets, where will YOU choose to be on September 17?
