They are fed up in France and have come to the conclusion that in order to take back control of their political system, they are going to strike at the heart – the banks. If the system serves the banks, then collapse the system by collapsing the banks. There is a movement growing to withdraw funds from the banks in France on Dec. 7th of this year.
“We don’t pick up weapons to kill people, to start the revolution… the revolution is really easy to do nowadays. What is the system? The system revolves around the banks. It’s based on the power of the banks… so it must be destroyed starting with the banks. This means that the 3 million people with their placards on the street… they go to the bank, withdraw their money from the banks and these ones collapse. 10 million people and the banks collapse and there is not real threat, a real revolution. We must go to the bank. In this case there would be a real revolution. It’s not complicated. You simply go to the bank in your country and withdraw your money. If there are enough people withdrawing their money, the system collapses. No weapon, no blood, or anything like that.“
(yes, it is a slick social media campaign made to go viral, but…)
Clearly - professionally edited sound and a carefully directed videographer crew (two-man crew in reflection on glass door)… and the guy is obviously a gifted and trained puppeteer and probably not homeless (certainly not sleeping on that “bed” in the back)… however…. it’s an outstanding, well thought-out performance and choreography with excellent video work.
So if I know this is just a social media marketing ploy designed to become a viral video, why do I put it up here?
‘Cause love’s such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And loves dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves…
[lyrics after the break]
The Decemberists give us a stirring reminder of the face of real hope in the world. Not a political false prophet or a swelling call to action… just the faces of children.
When you watch this, and that feeling creeps up on you… you know, the one that says this isn’t what America is supposed to be about… that’s the real hope of this nation and the only hope for these children.
We have a responsibility to reclaim the control of our armed forces from the less than honorable men that are directing them now. That is our duty as citizens of a constitutional republic. And don’t you ever forget it.
Since this went up in Feb. 2008, how many children have perished in this illegal occupation? At least 60 kids died in one attack in Afghanistan, in what Obama and McCain BOTH refer to as “the right war”.
