“Occupy Wall Street is no longer a protest”

“Occupy Wall Street is no longer a protest”

So says a policeman speaking about the nightly violence and mayhem at Zuccotti Square and its surroundings, as quoted in The NY Post:

“Every single night it’s the same thing. I mean, some guy was a victim of  rape!” an officer snarls. “There comes a time when it’s over. This is a  disaster. It’s all we’re doing, every two seconds, is locking somebody up every  time. It’s done.

“It’s done,” he repeats. “Occupy Wall Street is no longer a protest.”

Scenes like this — and far worse — have been playing out since the Zuccotti  Park “occupation” began on Sept. 17.

The parcel is now a sliver of madness, rife with sex attacks, robberies and  vigilante justice.

And it’s not just in New York. Instapundit has a round-up of links to what America would look like, if we let it.

Update:  Reader Ben sends the link to this photo, proving OWS is not about the money:

I think American gals need to get over & Occupy Miss World.

Yep Miss Venezuela strikes again .

As I have noted previously it is not just trending- it has been happening for 5 years . It is not fair. 1% are winning 99%of the contests.

I think it was Professor Reynolds at Instapundit who basically said that as OWS devolves more and more into violence, filth, and chaos … in other words, a complete embarrasment to the Democrats, the media will quietly let their coverage taper off and go on to other things.

I think that’s a pretty safe bet. There is only potential downside for OWS.

John Hinderaker said a few days ago that it’s not a protest, it’s a national crime wave. Sounds about right to me.

Bloomberg the pusillanimous pipsqueak has shown his inner socialist more fully than ever before.

No salt, no smoking, perversions taught in grade school, restaurants told what to serve but a full fledged rebellion and anarchy?

That’s ok.

Why isn’t this billionaire jackass in OWS’s sights.

Since him and many others of like mind and financial circumstance BUT who praise and coddle the lawless are exempt, then it becomes obvious what these people really want; anarchy and them and their friends in power over everyone else.

Scratch a Liberal and you find a tyrant.

They are right and wrong. Their priorities are based on perception, and limited, circumstantial evidence. They are confusing cause and effect. In their impatience they have failed to distinguish between instigators and conspirators. They do not have knowledge of the dynamic between private and authoritarian interests; between domestic and foreign interests.

I would guess these “occupiers” were not present at the Tea Party to protest progressive involuntary exploitation. They likely voted for redistributive and retributive change. Now that they have failed to receive a return on their investment, they have decided it’s time to protest.

The problem is comprehensive and they are focused on symptoms rather than causes.

Their secular institutions are advocates for replacement of moral knowledge with totalitarian policies. The former has been rejected as a voluntary constraint on excess and the latter has been an insufficient and corrupt measure.

We are living in a free society with a selective morality and a selective rule of law. What outcome did they expect?

As for the dollar, would they prefer electronic registers? How about gold (and ignore the unknown reserves which exist)? Maybe we should employ chickens and eggs to facilitate transactions. Perhaps they would prefer a strict barter exchange and the limitations intrinsic to that system.

A free society cannot exist without the conveyance and acceptance of a common moral knowledge. The existence of totalitarian policies should be reserved to hold individuals accountable who succumb to corruption or who choose to fail.

The debasement of the dollar is a symptom and not a cause of our crises.

As for “money is the root of all evils”, wake me when my beachfront property in Hawaii is prepared. Wake me when murder, rape, and other forms of involuntary exploitation are eradicated from this world. Wake me when there are no longer individuals who suffer from delusions of grandeur and act on their desire to control other people. It will not happen, and other than the first request, we are incapable of knowing why it will not.

That said, we do know factors which are causal contributors to progressive corruption of individuals and society. The principal factors contributed to the death of over 100 million people over a period of 1000 years (imperialism), and, most recently, the death of over 100 million people in less than 100 years (communism, socialism, fascism, etc.). It begins with a failure to properly assign dignity to human life, then continues with denigration of individual dignity and devaluation of human life.

Occupy will get crazier before it dissipates. But what will happen to the money? I’m curious to see how it will play out.

Follow the money. If you want to know ‘who is really behind the curtain’ in this OZ like Occupy Wall Street commune, then just identify the five people who control the $500,000 that has been donated to the organization. These are the people behind the scene.

I’m sure the Main Stream Media is hot on this story.
