Published on Friday, September 30, 2011 by
OccupyTogether: The Best Among Us
by Chris Hedges

There are no excuses left. Either you join the revolt taking place on Wall
Street and in the financial districts of other cities across the country or
you stand on the wrong side of history. Either you obstruct, in the only
form left to us, which is civil disobedience, the plundering by the criminal
class on Wall Street and accelerated destruction of the ecosystem that
sustains the human species, or become the passive enabler of a monstrous
evil. Either you taste, feel and smell the intoxication of freedom and
revolt or sink into the miasma of despair and apathy. Either you are a rebel
or a slave.

To be declared innocent in a country where the rule of law means nothing,
where we have undergone a corporate coup, where the poor and working men and
women are reduced to joblessness and hunger, where war, financial
speculation and internal surveillance are the only real business of the
state, where even habeas corpus no longer exists, where you, as a citizen,
are nothing more than a commodity to corporate systems of power, one to be
used and discarded, is to be complicit in this radical evil. To stand on the
sidelines and say âI am innocentâ is to bear the mark of Cain; it is to do
nothing to reach out and help the weak, the oppressed and the suffering, to
save the planet. To be innocent in times like these is to be a criminal. Ask
Tim DeChristopher.

Choose. But choose fast. The state and corporate forces are determined to
crush this. They are not going to wait for you. They are terrified this will
spread. They have their long phalanxes of police on motorcycles, their rows
of white paddy wagons, their foot soldiers hunting for you on the streets
with pepper spray and orange plastic nets. They have their metal barricades
set up on every single street leading into the New York financial district,
where the mandarins in Brooks Brothers suits use your money, money they
stole from you, to gamble and speculate and gorge themselves while one in
four children outside those barricades depend on food stamps to eat.
Speculation in the 17th century was a crime. Speculators were hanged. Today
they run the state and the financial markets. They disseminate the lies that
pollute our airwaves. They know, even better than you, how pervasive the
corruption and theft have become, how gamed the system is against you, how
corporations have cemented into place a thin oligarchic class and an
obsequious cadre of politicians, judges and journalists who live in their
little gated Versailles while 6 million Americans are thrown out of their
homes, a number soon to rise to 10 million, where a million people a year go
bankrupt because they cannot pay their medical bills and 45,000 die from
lack of proper care, where real joblessness is spiraling to over 20 percent,
where the citizens, including students, spend lives toiling in debt peonage,
working dead-end jobs, when they have jobs, a world devoid of hope, a world
of masters and serfs.

The only word these corporations know is more. They are disemboweling every
last social service program funded by the taxpayers, from education to
Social Security, because they want that money themselves. Let the sick die.
Let the poor go hungry. Let families be tossed in the street. Let the
unemployed rot. Let children in the inner city or rural wastelands learn
nothing and live in misery and fear. Let the students finish school with no
jobs and no prospects of jobs. Let the prison system, the largest in the
industrial world, expand to swallow up all potential dissenters. Let torture
continue. Let teachers, police, firefighters, postal employees and social
workers join the ranks of the unemployed. Let the roads, bridges, dams,
levees, power grids, rail lines, subways, bus services, schools and
libraries crumble or close. Let the rising temperatures of the planet, the
freak weather patterns, the hurricanes, the droughts, the flooding, the
tornadoes, the melting polar ice caps, the poisoned water systems, the
polluted air increase until the species dies.

Who the hell cares? If the stocks of ExxonMobil or the coal industry or
Goldman Sachs are high, life is good. Profit. Profit. Profit. That is what
they chant behind those metal barricades. They have their fangs deep into
your necks. If you do not shake them off very, very soon they will kill you.
And they will kill the ecosystem, dooming your children and your childrenâs
children. They are too stupid and too blind to see that they will perish
with the rest of us. So either you rise up and supplant them, either you
dismantle the corporate state, for a world of sanity, a world where we no
longer kneel before the absurd idea that the demands of financial markets
should govern human behavior, or we are frog-marched toward
