The Hands of the Few


To my knowledge, the protest on Wall Street has been going on for over a month before news stations began to cover it. It has also spread to many other cities and countries around the world. Now, I am going to cut to the chase and get straight to my opinion. I am a college graduate with a bachelor's degree in business and landing a full time job with salary and benefits has been the most difficult task to accomplish. I am not a believer in statistics or politics. I feel like statistics are made up by whoever has the power to announce them to the masses. I feel like politicians are people with enough money to make large amounts of people believe in them. All anyone can ask for is to get the "American Dream" back. There is absolutely no reason that people have to struggle in the richest country in the world.

I may not believe in statistics and politics, but I do believe in common sense. The small percentage of the population that have large amounts of disposable income obviously have the power to do whatever they want with their money. If social leaders want to re-build a community, they can surely do so. If they want to buy summer homes in the Hamptons and send their kids to boarding school, they can surely do that as well. What I am trying to say is, poor people can't fix poor people's problems. Like I have said in a previous post, it doesn't make sense for multi-millionaires to ask non multi-millionaires for money. I have learned that the main way to get rich in America is off of other people's money, not your own.

The protesters on Wall Street and around the world are fed up with the foolishness. No one is asking for millions and billions of dollars of their own. Truly, most people just want to get by and live comfortably. Every billion dollar corporation can afford a much lower unemployment rate, but they choose to keep their money for themselves and keep people out of work. The only people who can fix this "recession" are people with money, not those without. Fifty percent of college graduates over the past few years have menial jobs that don't even require degrees. So now, after incurring thousands of dollars in debt for an education, there is no way to pay it back. Who knows what the results of this protest will be. I know one thing, the real money in America is intended to remain in the hands of the few.

  2. I'm so relieved to hear this opinion. I have recently heard a few people speaking badly of the OWS movement and the views they expressed seemed very misinformed or to be honest, ignorant. You spoke intelligently and with grace on the issue. I really hope there is a positive result from all these protests. It seems ludicrous that so many struggle just to survive day to day while there are others who couldn't spend all the money they have in their lifetime. Very good post Nichole.
