I will probably take a lot of heat for the comments I am about to make, but I really feel it is about time that somebody started to ask for accountability. The one thing that really bothers me about the Occupy and the Anti-Occupy movements is the blatant disregard for providing accurate and truthful facts.
The facts are spun, manipulated, massaged and omitted to make a point – any point. Everything is geared to WINNING your point of view without any regard for the truth. Both sides are guilty of this, and therefore both sides have lost a lot of credibility with the public.
Videos are reedited, comments are taken out of context, and worst of all, people are relying on suspect websites as the basis for their facts. Silly, if not downright inaccurate information is posted daily, and the people seem to eat it up since it reinforces their narrow viewpoint.
Just browsing through the various Facebook pages is enough to make a sane person sick to their stomach. Passion is a wonderful thing, innocence can be excused, but there is absolutely no excuse for outright lies and manipulation of facts.
Enough is enough!
If either side of this argument is to have any longevity, or to have a solid intelligent following, the this ridiculous behaviour needs to stop NOW.
Do your comments apply specifically to this post? And if so which aspect is it that you object to?
Why don’t you write me a story on what you think is wrong with our economic or government structure that causes inequality and imbalance?
I find it incredibly difficult to represent every side of an issue when there is such a lot of information out there.
