a part of what you are and not agree to be arrested anymore the whole entire control of the police state disappears when that happens there are credible possibilities that are open to us and certainly you can imagine a different world if you believe you can be an agent of change the occupy movement has gained such momentum even the president who promised change was forced to address the issue i think people are frustrated and you know the protesters are giving voice to a more broad based frustration about how our financial system works but the american people understand that not everybody has been following the rules. that wall street is an example of that these days a lot of folks who are doing the right thing are well worth it a lot of folks who are doing the right thing or while the u.s. has encouraged and supported democratic uprisings in the arab world the same events
