Soup Posted October 18, 2011 Share Posted October 18, 2011 Also, the way i see it, the basic tenants of occupy wall street are in its voting process. Everything else is meh. Moving small accounts to small banks is a good idea. If a small bank can support you or your small business with the credit you need, fuck it, they usually give the lowest APR's and the most benefits. Just pray they don't go out of business like all those small banks did in the housing crisis, because they will take your accounts with them, UNLESS a bigger bank buys them out with all their assets and saves you. Don't let the irony kill you. But I really hope they don't get co-opted. I really hope they don't let celebrities or politicians make public donations to their cause and show visible support. Occupy Wallstreet shouldn't feed into aristocracy when what they want is for everybody just to sit down and be valued as one vote, just like everyone else. That's the kind of democracy that benefits the community, brings people together to speak their minds about what's affecting them, but listen to everybody else over their own selfish needs. That also goes against the entire political process as it currently stands in every democracy in the world, where people vote for celebrities to represent them.
