Wall Street? Hell no!
By Servando Gonzalez
The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
But in ourselves, that we are underlings.
— William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
Occupiers remind me of the guy who was trying
to catch a black cat in a dark room, but the cat was not even
there. The main characteristic of the movement is that it has
no clear, concise goal. They claim to be the 99 percent who work
and pay for the privilege and power enjoyed by the 1 percent,
but some people who have studied the demographics of the group
occupying Wall Street found out that some of them belong to the
very privileged class they complain about.
The occupy movement began in Europe, particularly in Spain, inspired
by a short tract written by 93 year old French socialist author
Stéphane Hessel titled Indignez Vous!  (Lit.
Get Angry! or Get Pissed Off!). Hessel, a co-author of the 1948
Universal Declaration of the Rights of Men, managed to escape
from Buchenwald camp and joined the Résistance to fight
Hessel’s tract circulated widely among young people and
his ideas inspired the pioneer Indignados movement that
erupted in Madrid and other Spanish cities. Unfortunately, however,
Hessel is a European socialist, and he blames capitalism for the
problems we now face. But, as I’ll show below, capitalism
is not the problem.
On the other hand, this is nothing at which to be surprised. Although
the Occupy Wall Street movement claims that it has no affiliation
to a particular political party, it is evident that most occupiers
are Leftists (a sort of Tea Party in reverse), and the leftist
definition of rich is very simple: anybody but me. (Michel Moore
anyone?) That’s why they are always so eager to raise other
Nevertheless, it is evident that the hard-core occupiers, which
may be nothing but agent provocateurs, have attracted a large
mass of well intentioned, though naïve people who have strong
reasons to be upset with the state of things in today’s
America. According to occupywallstreet.org, the movement is fighting
... the corrosive power of major banks and
multi-national corporations over the democratic process and
the role of Wall Street in creating an economic collapse that
has caused the greatest recession in generations.
The site adds that the movement looks to end
the power of money held over political influence. This has led
them to coin the slogan, “We are the 99 percent.”
Granted, I cannot agree more, and I highly respect the mostly
young Americans who have taken to the streets to protest against
corporate plunder and political corruption. What I question, though,
is the tactics. I have the impression that most of them are convinced
that the government is the only one who can solve the problem.
Proof that their wrong tactics do not harm the conspirators is
that, until now, the government has mostly tolerated their antics
But let’s face it: the treasonous elite — America
is a country betrayed by its ruling class — is ready to
defend its power and wealth tooth and nail at any cost. The government
will do nothing to change this state of things because most of
the politicians we have elected to represent us have been bought
like pigs in a country fair by Wall Street bankers, oil magnates
and CEOs of transnational corporations. Adding insult to outrage,
the money they are using to buy politicians is the very same money
they have stolen from us through taxes and other scams. In essence,
we have sharpened the knife that is now threatening to cut our
The political option a few well-intentioned, honest politicians
are currently offering us — we can count them with the fingers
of a single hand — amounts to disentangling the Gordian
knot of treason and corruption by taking control of Washington
via our votes. But I think that the knot of corruption and outright
treason has become so huge and entangled that it is too late to
try to untie it: like Alexander, we need to cut it with a sharp
Consequently, contrary to common belief, the last tool we should
think about to cut this knot to save America is the U.S. Government,
a very blunt tool. The reason is obvious: currently the U.S. is
mostly composed of corrupt politicians and secret agents of
Wall Street banks and transnational corporations.
Let me make this clear: Currently, the U.S. Government has become
a confederacy of thieves. The politicians who govern us are
guilty of many crimes, including grand larceny, Ponzi schemes,
highway robbery, white-collar crime, racketeering, insider trading,
thievery, swindling, cheating, defrauding, plundering the public
treasury, fleecing and looting. Consequently, capturing Washington
from inside through our votes, or trying to force the government
to change through occupy Wall Street actions is an exercise in
What to do then?
Well, as I have said in many of my articles, we don’t need
to beg the politicians in Washington D.C. for change. We the people
are the most powerful force that can bring the necessary changes
to correct the course of America. To do this, however, we need
to know exactly who the enemy is; who are the ones conspiring
behind the curtains to destroy America as we knew it, and then
fight them as forcefully as we can.
We must keep in mind, however, that this is not a battle fought
with guns, tanks, and planes in a conventional battlefield —
at least not yet. It is a battle fought in our minds with cunning,
lies and deception. In synthesis, it is a psychological war, a
PsyWar, and our enemy’s best weapon is disinformation
— the Occupy Wall Street movement is proof of this.
Consequently, if we want to win this mind war, we need to plan
our defense very carefully, using even better mind weapons than
the ones the enemy has been so successfully been using against
us. As Sun Tzu wisely stated, if you control the minds of the
enemy you would win all battles without even firing a shot.
A tactic that has been successfully used in war is cutting the
enemy’s lines of supply. And, who supplies the politicians
in power with the money that has bought their consciences and
has turned them into traitors? I already mentioned them before:
Wall Street bankers, oil magnates and CEOs and boards of directors
of transnational corporations.
But, how do these corporations make all their money? They get
the money from us. Therefore, the best tactic to win this war
consists in starving the monster that is feeding our enemy.
Consequently, we don’t need to occupy Wall Street, or Oakland,
or none of the places the occupiers have occupied by ignorance
or evil intent. On the contrary, we need to unoccupy Walmart,
Costco, Keymart, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Target, Best Buy, Ikea,
and all the big corporate stores who mostly sell cheap products
made abroad by quasi-slave workers, and only buy in locally owned
stores that don’t ship their money to banks abroad, but
leave it in the community.
We have been brainwashed to admire these huge corporate stores
as symbols of America’s entrepreneurship and freedom, as
chain departments stores like Woolworth, Sears, Macy’s,
and Montgomery Ward were sixty years ago. Currently, however,
the mega stores have changed to become efficient tools of economic
slavery at the service of our hidden masters. Instead of loving
them, we need to get angry with these large corporate stores for
their direct contribution to the destruction of America’s
Now, why big corporations have moved abroad their production facilities?
Because corporations have no soul, conscience, ethics, moral,
principles or nationality, much less patriotism. Their only
goal is to maximize the profits of their CEOs, board of directors
and shareholders. To this effect, they realized that the best
way to maximize profit is by minimizing costs, and the best way
to minimize costs is by paying miserly salaries to starving workers
in Third World countries. Globalization has made their plundering
As an example, I can mention that, while is Apple selling its
iPads for $499.00, a company in India is selling a similar product
to students for $35.00. This shows that, by using quasi-slave
labor of teenagers in China, Apple has enormously lowered the
production costs of its products and getting a huge profit margin
that is not benefiting in any way American consumers, much less
American workers. In this sense, “progressive” Apple,
with Al Gore on its board of directors, is not too different from
reactionary Halliburton with Dick Cheney.
Countries used to avoid such things detrimental to their economies
by implementing strong tariffs to products made abroad that could
be easily made in the country. This is called economic protectionism.
History shows that economic protectionism has always been beneficial
to the economies of the countries that have implemented it.
But corporations pay no allegiance to any country, so they hate
protectionism. Therefore, U.S.-based transnational corporations
forced their well-paid servants they helped to get elected in
Washington to approve the signing of so-called “free trade”
agreements with other countries. As you may guess, these “free-trade”
agreements only benefit the big corporations, not you and me,
much less the poor workers in Mexico, China or India.
Obviously, we cannot convince well-bought politicians to put an
end to the “free trade” agreements that are taking
our jobs abroad and destroying our economy. Nor Wall Street occupiers
can do it. But just by the simple action of unoccupying their
big corporate stores we can put the anti-American corporations
against the ropes. As a rule, look for the “Made in America”
tag in the product before buying it.
The big corporate stores, however, are not the only ones to blame
for the systematic destruction of America’s economy. We
also need to unoccupy Bank of America, Wells Fargo, City Bank
and the rest of the big corporate banks in cahoots with the big
transnational corporations and bring our money to small local
banks, preferable to credit unions — as some people are
And please, don’t buy the lie repeated over and over ad
nauseam by professional disinformers like Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin
and others, that corporations are the main source of jobs in America
and, in order to create jobs, corporate taxes should be lowered.
As Senator Bernie Sanders has shown, big corporations have always
managed to avoid paying taxes. The reason for this is because
they buy the politicians in Congress to pass tax laws with enough
loopholes that only benefit them. As the saying goes, the golden
law of taxes is that whoever has the gold makes the laws.
Granted, there is a kernel of truth in the disinformers’
claim that transnational corporations are a main source of job
creation. What they don’t say is that most of these jobs
have been created abroad. In an act of true magic, transnational
corporations have changed well paid jobs in America into poorly
paid jobs in Third World countries.
By the way, wittingly or unwittingly, far from hurting the big
corporations they claim to hate, demonstrations like Occupy
Oakland have mostly damaged local small businesses, many of them
owned by minorities, the representatives of true capitalism. Paradoxically,
the alleged anti-corporation occupiers are helping transnational
corporations reach their goal of destroying small businesses and
true capitalism in America.
Now, why do corporations hate capitalism? Because capitalism implies
competition and, by definition, monopoly capitalism hates it.
Keep in mind that the one who said, “Competition is a sin”
was not Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin or Mao Tse-Tung, but John D.
Rockefeller, the man who most people in the world wrongly identify
Moreover, don’t buy the fallacious argument that people
who truly fight big corporations are Lefties or hate capitalism.
On the contrary, corporate capitalism, that is, monopoly capitalism,
is not capitalism at all, but socialism, either of the Left, in
its Communist variety, or of the Right, in its Fascist form. Proof
of this is that Obama’s alleged communism is almost undistinguishable
from Bush’s fascism. Both of them love big corporations
and Wall Street banks, and have a total contempt for the American
people. Both of them saturated their administrations with CFR
For the time being we cannot give the same treatment I advise
to oil corporations. They have a total monopoly (actually a cartel)
on their product. We cannot stop buying gas for vehicles and,
at least for the time being, it is their way or the highway (on
foot). But it is totally in our hands to reduce gas consumption
to a minimum, only to cover our most essential needs. Ultimately
we are at war, and a war requires sacrifices. So, lets self-ration
Do you think that this solution I am talking about is unrealistic
or unattainable? Not at all. Actually, it is working.
As you know, a few months ago Bank of America unexpectedly announced
that it was going to charge a 5-dollar a month new fee for using
its debit cards. Immediately, other big banks began salivating
just thinking about how easy it is for them to fleece us. But
the customers’ response, canceling their accounts in Bank
of America and bringing them to smaller banks, was so overwhelming
that, soon after, BofA canceled the 5 dollar fee and the banks
planning to add a similar fee decided not to do it.
In the same fashion, a few weeks ago Netflix decided to charge
a fee to their customers for a service they had been already giving
at no extra cost. But, almost immediately, close to 800,000 Netflix
subscribers canceled their accounts, sending a strong message
to the very heart of the company: its bank account. Soon after,
Netflix executives did an about face and trashed their plans.
These two events show that we the people do not have to beg to
the government for anything, including the end of the economic
recession and unemployment.
Contrary to big corporations who, in order to raise their profits,
have moved the jobs abroad, small businesses employ close to half
of all private-sector workers. According to the Small Business
Administration, they pay 44 percent of the American private payroll.
Even more important, while big corporations were busy outsourcing
jobs, over the past 17 yearsß small businesses have created
close to 65 percent of net new jobs.
This shows that consumers, in an alliance with small businesses,
have the power to pull us out of this recession artificially created
by Wall Street banks and transnational corporations.
Despite of the fact that the enemy controls the mainstream media,
the Republican and Democratic parties (which I call the Repucratic
party), and most of the corrupt politicians in Washington D.C.,
the Republican candidates debates have shown that, with the exception
of Ron Paul, the rest of them are not trying to win our votes,
but the favor of their potential corporate buyers in Wall Street.
Therefore, forget about them. The bottom line is that to win this
war we don’t need the help of corrupt politicians. We have
a secret weapon more powerful than strategic missiles tipped with
nuclear warheads: our wallets. Let’s use them wisely, and
the final victory will be ours.
So, what are you waiting for to get truly pissed off? Where is
your line in the sand? Are you waiting for the TSA main pervert
to order her minions to perform rectal and vaginal examinations
on you and your family? Are you waiting for the corrupt politicians
in Washington to fully trash the Constitution? Are you waiting
to become dirty poor serfs dependent on the New World Order globalist

France: Indigéne Editions, 2011).
 Currently, the Republican Fascist Right is trying to push
the occupiers into the Democrat’s camp, the same way a few
years ago the Democrat Communist Left pushed the Tea Partiers
into the Republican’s camp. Eventually, the Republicans
infiltrated the Tea Party movement and took control over it. Will
the Democrats succeed in infiltrating and controlling the occupiers?
Let’s wait and see.
