This is about the fact that only the wealthy have had an income increase in the last 30 years. The average person is making less than they once did. <br />
That is a good reason to be mad as hell when you think that the wealthy have seen their incomes go up 10% a year for the last 30 years. They did it on top of the working class by taking away their pensions and reducing their incomes.

Have you seen how much the US lawmakers have given to themselves in the last few years? They're getting richer over the laws that they pass. The average citizens would be put in prison for what they're doing.

I believe those are the begining signs of discontent in the American population about how things work there. It is one thing to get rich from honest work, but it is another thing when the wealth comes from pure scamming and pyrimad schemes which slowly take the money of the average worker. There is such blatant corruption on Wallstreet its hard to believe. Let me give you an example. America has an organization which call themselves the Federal Reserve. This is a place that prints money for USA. Because of its name, most people think this is a government agency for the people, but it's not. It's a privately owned thing where private individuals benefit. This group of people decide how much money they should print, then they give this to banks to lend out to the people with interest. They also supply it to government which then pays them interest back through tax money from the people. There is a very close link between those that print the money and the banks that get the money. The people that print the money are ex CEO's of the banks themselves. Banks like Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan. When American taxpayers paid over a trillion dollars to bail out the banks, they were paying back those bankers for creating a pyrimad scheme that went sour for the public, but worked out fine for them. Never have bankers had such big bonuses in the US as the time the banks were being 'bailed out'

I really hate to link external sources to EP since it defeats the point of answering questions, but I think this sums it up nicely. In a nutshell, and my horribly biased opinion, the rich have taken the money from the middle class, gutted the major employers, and are doing everything they can to get richer and richer. <br />

For all their railing and ranting, and for all the bravado with which they might speak of making a revolution against America, or of ceasing to acquiesce in the "triumph of the businessman" and to take this country back from him and restore it to its rightful rulers, most of the time they knew in their hearts that they were only addressing one another and they did not really expect to be heard either by the dominant forces of society or by the "masses".

Will wall street protesters take America to a better place?

Best Answer

In my opinion no, The solution isn't the governments responsibility to fix all that its citizens should feel the problems stem from in society. It is the decay of citizen's duties to hold governments to be accountable in matters before they lose their jobs and homes and start screaming foul. Apathy and general disinterest in the voters duty to voice their opinion during the election process and selecting qualified political leaders. All these marginalized groups avenge themselves by staging ideological guerrilla attacks from the sidelines after the fact. Will that fix anything? No one launches a grass root movement successfully if it doesn't affect the voter base.
