Enough Words

It's time to take action

Enough Words

By Lloyd Hart


It's time to take action and shut the economy down until the oligarchs surrender to our will and negotiate a civil society in which poverty is abolished by guaranteed income, that pollution is abolished by criminal law and where creative inventors and organizers are rewarded for their efforts in a free market unencumbered by corporate monopolies.

Enough words describing our condition. It is time for action.

It is time to shut down all economic activity through mass non-violent civil disobedient traffic blocking.

The Occupy Wall St. Movement has no leverage to force change and until OWS gets some leverage nothing will change.

If OWS blocks traffic and shuts down business as usual, OWS will have leverage to force change.

The forgotten must block traffic to remind the forgetful of the needs of the forgotten.

Don't follow the leaders. The leaders are corrupt. Block traffic with your friends.

Guidelines For Non-Violent Civil Disobedient Traffic Blocking.

okay. And then what?

okay, big head, what's your plan after the traffic has stopped?

play is the streets and dance.

An intelligent thought from Lloyd is painful but there is a hope that this may yet occur. On its own.

I say we should look at the collective effort at the major ports on the west coast, to shut them down with a concrete list of demands and programs.

Lloyd should actually try this before he sends his imaginary troops to occupy the streets for massive irritation.

Organization to a purpose is a better idea.

Yeah keep doing things that produce zero results

The ports completely absorbed the lame one day port blockade and will absorb your next lame action. With traffic blocking you shut down the entire economy and force negotiations for a guaranteed income economy etc., etc..

still again...

why go for collective punishment by interfering with civilian traffic when a selective blockade as in the west coast ports block hits the commercial interests where it has minimal effect on the average Joe worker.

Make some sense.

Or better yet show us how it's done. Lead by example not by a keyboard bravado.

Ports move more money

The ports are choke points. The LA action was limited - because the port is so large.

Stopping traffic at an intersection has little effect because several hundred yards away is another road.
