There are a lot of angry people in the world. Can't really say they are any angrier than in years past, but it sure seems that way. Even in the past when you had a lot of hate at least the people in control were happy because they were getting their way.
It would appear that those days are gone. Even the people in control are angry at the world. I was count off guard this week when I read reports of bankers and financial professionals who were upset with the Occupy Wall St. protesters with some being so bold as to proudly state how they were the 1% and I am better than you.
Well that is not really shocking and neither is the fact that probably at least 60% of the country agrees with them. See the thing the protesters are failing to understand is that the vast majority of Americans have no problem with our current system, they are just upset they are not the ones winning.
In American History we are taught that the revolution was about freedom and all those lofty ideas but they forget that greed and money were the driving force behind the unhappiness. The people were upset mostly because of the money they were losing and were prevented from even complaining about it.
People at their core are greedy, jealous, and petty. Step on their toes in anyway and you will definitely upset them. Doesn't matter what their religion, race, income status or any other thing we use to separate ourselves, in the end we all just want to have our way and woe to the individual or individuals that get in our way.
Most people can't even be bothered to even care or discuss any of the major issues in the world. I saw a picture that stated that the world mourns for Steve Jobs, yet could care less about the millions that died in Africa or the millions of others that are killed and oppressed around the world every single day.
See people love to say how much they care about the world, but all their actions show they do not care in the slightest. Actually when I think about it I hear more and more people freely admit that they do not care about anyone but themselves and maybe their children.
So protesters around the world it is time to understand you can fight your battle to achieve your goals, just understand that those in power aren't just misinformed, they truly don't care about you in the slightest.
