The 99 per cent will win

The one per cent masters of the universe have had a great con going for the past 30 years

Editor, The News:

I have been looking at the disturbing pictures and reading the reports about the suppression of the democratic occupy movement and I can assure you that we have seen nothing yet. The full power, control and money has yet to be seen that the super rich, one per cent is undoubtedly prepared to unleash to maintain the status quo, which means keeping the world’s people powerless and enslaved in their miserly quest for the riches of avarice.

The one per cent masters of the universe have had a great con going for the past 30 years, consolidating their power and wealth, and if anyone thinks that they will just give up all the power and money they have accumulated just because the 99 per cent want a piece of the pie, you are wrong. There will be plenty of blood spilled before this is over.

The 99 per cent will win in the end for the simple fact that the present system is not sustainable, never mind all the other injustices, such as simply not conducive to a just, democratic, egalitarian society.
