What we are seeing is a group, in large part, of college grads and twenty-somethings that are angry with those who have worked a life time and acquired some wealth as a result of their hard work. Some where along the line these misguided young people were led to believe that their parents' generation owed them a living. They have contributed little, if any, to the econmoy of America, and yet they are angry at those who have. They have bought into the current administration's idea of socialism for America. That view supports the idea of taking from those who have worked hard to have something and give it to those who are unwilling to put forth any effort for what they desire. This Occupy Movement needs to learn, as most of America already has, that there is no free lunch. Their parents and grandparents have what they possess soley by the good grace of God who gave them the strength to work and their willingness to work for an honest weeks' pay.
Think about the condition of America after WWII. Our economy was in shambles. War had taken its toll, but it was then that we saw the greatest resurgence in modern history. That generation knew that things were bad, but they weren't hanging out and protesting; they went to work to build a life for their families. That is what we need from this so called Movement. We need those who are willing to start at the bottom, if that is what is required, and work their way up. (By the way, who do they think contributed to the local economies to purchase and maintain the parks they are occupying? If it wasn't for those who had worked hard, made good business decisions, and invested some of the wealth they earned in the local communities, they wouldn't have a park to "occupy.") I say to that crowd: face reality, seek a job, and quit demanding something for nothing. You might have to do a job that is less than desireable, but at least then you will be putting forth some effort and making a contribution to society, rather than expecting your fortune to be handed to you on a silver platter!
I know that isn't very spiritual, but it is what I had on my mind today. This way of thinking is permeating all of society. It is time for America to assume responsibility and be willing to actually work for what we receive, rather than expecting the government to produce another "handout!" Just a thought.
