#OCCUPYWALLSTREET Needs a Bolder Goal
We demand that Barack Obama ordain a Presidential Commission tasked with ending the influence money has over our representatives in Washington. – Adbusters
Adbusters is “a global network of culture jammers and creatives working to change the way information flows, the way corporations wield power, and the way meaning is produced in our society.” Sounds cool. And they’re calling for 20,000 people to occupy the capital of the financial world (Wall Street) Tahrir-square style. (By the way, those fine Egyptians are *still* in Tahrir square.) Kickass!
Their goal? That Barack Obama appoint a presidential commission. Seriously, these trend-setting creatives couldn’t imagine a bolder goal? Something to justify a 20,000 person sit-in in the capital of the world?!
Here’s an idea. End government privileges for corporations. All of them. Including limited liability, subsidies, incorporation, you name it. The whole ball of wax. And end government control of our economic life. And end all government controls on our ability to hold businesses accountable for their actions. No more government running interference. A complete separation of government and economic life. Or, to keep it simple, no more government, period. That should do it. What say you?
