Fwd: [Project-Censored-L] The Global Occupy Movement Challenges the Transnational Corporate Class

---------- Forwarded message ----------

by Peter Phillips

The international concentration of wealth and military power is
endangering not only the personal freedoms and life chances of
billions of people, but the potentiality for life on earth to simply
exist. The US-NATO military-industrial-media empire operates in
support of transnational corporations and the central banks primarily
as the enforcer of International Monetary Fund/World Bank's fiscal
policies and the protector of transnational capital flow. The
combination of empire enforcers—both public and private military/police
—in partnership with the private owners of production and capital's
need for constant growth and profits, is resulting in a tragic decline
of humanity into a freedomless state of global corporate facism.

We are not going to reform the empire of destruction globally through
corrupt capital protecting legislative bodies controlled by
millionaires and corporate money. We are not going to change the
propaganda messages of corporate media—as they are deeply embedded in
the destructive empire of power. Corporate media (singular) is the
information control wing of the global power structure inside the
transnational corporate class of the one percent. The corporate media
systematically censors news stories that challenge the propaganda of
empire. Specific mythologies of empire  are that we live in a
democratic societies with fair elections, that governments are
primarily transparent and seek to protect the public, that evil lurks
in the world waiting to challenge our freedoms, we fight fairly and
morally while the others are evil terrorists, governments would never
do anything to harm their own citizens, wealth trickles down, we all
trying to be green  and capitalism will save us. Occupy challenges
these myths of empire as  lies and propaganda.

The time is for the Occupy democracy movement  to build our own news,
and our own systems of decision making from the bottom up. We no
longer need a majority to make change inside the empire. We need only
active informed populations in the 10-20% range of society to initiate
change producing social movements of resistance and non-cooperation
with empire.

Individually and collectively we can disconnect from employment that
supports the empire of destruction, we can keep our work instead with
community-based efforts at local sustainability, economic development,
and caring. We can shop and bank locally and never enter the Wal
Mart's of empire. We can organize for resistance to counter the
billions of dollars a year spent by the military to lie our children
into serving the empire of destruction. We can turn off the corporate
media filled with its propaganda and lies and seek our own sources of
news from with democracy movements worldwide.

Power to the people
