The Necessity Of Resisting Financial Tyranny
by Charles Hugh Smith
It’s time we defended liberty and democracy against financial tyranny: take your money out of Wall Street and the “too big to fail” banks, and stop funding their fraud, churn and subversion of democracy.
June 14th is a national day of resistance against economic tyranny. We all need to do our part. The good folks at AmpedStatus.org have hosted this site: Acts of Resistance: What Are You Going To Do On June 14th to Rebel Against Economic Tyranny? Demonstrations and public actions are being planned in a number of cities.
If you cannot attend the public events, then consider taking direct action against Wall Street and the “too big to fail” banks. Direct action boils down to this simple act: remove your money from their grasp. Your money fuels their exploitation, their fraud, their skimming, their lobbying and thus their sabotage of democracy. If we all take our money out of their grasp, then they will shrink or expire.
If you haven’t already, move your IRA and other accounts out of Wall Street and “too big to fail” banks. Move the accounts to online firms, local credit unions or local banks. Yes, there are still locally owned and controlled banks. Moving your money to them is a direct-action statement against financial tyranny.
