To all Occupy, Capitalists and Socialists please watch this video and comment.

These people for the most part believe in growth and that if only we took money from the rich than everyone could live like kings. I believe that our resources are running out rapidly and that is just not possible.

23:42 the reason so many people are giving up their passports is probably more like they are disgusted with "being American"

The guy talking about Fracking, Tar Sands and [pro]Capitalism aspects that he supported [sucked]
But it was telling and worth listening to
