Occupy this, bitches!

Nov 04, 2011 12:45

It's pretty common knowledge that I'm a bit of a lefty socialist, so as you can imagine, I've been following the Occupy movement with great interest. I'm not anti-capitalist as such, but I'm very much against rampant, unchecked capitalism, and it warms my heart to see that large groups of people are finally beginning to agree that this is a problem ( Read more... )

I don't think I will. I have of rants stored in my teeny brain and they need an outlet.

DAMN STRAIGHT.

There's no Occupy Adelaide yet. Probably just as well - it would be me and 5 bored uni students.

Has anyone ever really occupied Adelaide? Or are willing to admit it if they have? ;)

Seriously, the fucking middle-class moaning about the Occupy Melbourne protests - particularly after it spilled out onto Swanston St and disrupted some people's precious goddamn tram service, it made me so fucking angry.

I've started filtering on FB people who are so goddamned privileged and still moan about tiny inconveniences like that.

I'm just culling them. I'm fed up to the back teeth with middle class whingers. I don't want to know such selfish arses.

I've been taking advantage of being 'home alone' at work and reading some of the wearethe99% thingies on tumblr. Something gets in my eye every time I start reading them.

How can a country get it so wrong? And how can we make sure we don't?

That blog kills me. I can't read it for more than about four minutes.

OMG HI YOU.

I totally feel your thoughts. Canada doesn’t have a lot of the problems the US are facing, but at the same time our country’s policies and practices are tied in to what the US does. We’ve got a lot of the same issues here like all utilities being privatized and a monopoly on the media.

And that's the government's fault because they're not paying for these things with their magic pot of money that comes from somewhere but it better not be from us.

YES, THIS. I don’t understand how the middle class can whine about health care and unemployment while refusing to pay more taxes. You have to realize there’s a trade off. TAXES ARE GOOD, HELP YOURSELF AND FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS, GOD.

Every time someone starts complaining about paying taxes, I just want to punch them.

WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY.

Totally agree. Taxes are a part of life in a funtioning society. It shits me to TEARS when they argue that taxes are government interfering with their LIVES.

You know that? First World Problems.
