Hope for Occupy Wall Street?
The Daily Bell

It is interesting to watch the expansion of the Occupy Wall Street movement. As I wrote last week, I hoped it would provide an opportunity for people to proclaim clearly thatcentral banking was the fundamental problem with the Western world today.
The article, “Blaming Wall Street is Wrong,” received wide play. The idea was that the emphasis on attacking corporations and Wall Street itself – a transactional business – was taking energy and focus off the real issue, which was central banking. Central banking, controlled by elite families in my view, is the power elite‘s dominant social theme. It provides the endless streams of money that support the elite’s ever-expandingNew World Order.
We seemed to have touched a nerve. The article was mentioned by Infowars, Prison Planet, the Drudge Report and numerous other media outlets. Alex Jones, in fact, announced he was starting a movement to focus on ways to protest not just Federal Reserve activities but the institution itself.
Unfortunately, a week later, Occupy Wall Street continues to be a kind of “mixed bag.” This, therefore, must of necessity be a “good news/bad news” kind of follow-up.
Good news: Occupy Wall Street has raised the issue of central banking and performed an increasingly serious educative service. It’s given libertarian concerns a platform which maybe able to support a serious discussion about central banking. Occupy Wall Street in this fashion, can be looked on as a beginning not an end.
