IS AMERICA FACING A REVOLUTION???
Sanford Pinna, M.D.
There is a Protest Movement occurring in the
U.S.A. at this moment, called “OCCUPY WALL
It is spreading from the big cities to the small
cities and the media is fully aware and apprehensive
about this new, unexpected challenge.
American society, like European society,
is a mÃ©lange of many different groups.
No longer than three decades ago, American
society was controlled and directed by Americans
of European descent.
This is no longer true.
Today, because of the effects of immigration,
both legal and illegal, the increased birth rate
of African Americans, the posture of the American
Power Groups, which desire a fragmented and
weak population, and the American governments,
at all levels, also seeking weakness in their voting
population; the American population can no longer
speak with enthusiasm about their problems.
Many American groups are unable to speak
or read English!
English is no longer the dominant language
for large parts of American society.
No one can criticize the American public for
their inability to speak.
Millions of Americans have just recently
arrived from Latin America, where Spanish or
Portuguese, is the primary and sole language.
Other millions have recently arrived from
Asia where Chinese, Vietnamese and Philippine Tagalog
are some of the languages used.
Other immigrants have come from Eastern
Europe, Russia or the Middle East.
English is not the language for any of these
Thus a major segment of American society
is functionally incapable of voicing their concerns,
and functionally illiterate when they view American
This fragmented and weak American society
sustains a powerful parasitic upper class, which
is devouring the income of the massive lower
The numerical ratio of the American Upper
Class to the American Lower Class is growing
daily and the Democratic vision of a balanced
and harmonious American society is disappearing.
A mirror image of this process is also
occurring in Europe.
A DISENCHANTED MINORITY FORMS
In spite of this fragmented and almost
paralyzed society, a small group has emerged;
which is vocal, decisive and making their
complaints heard across the world.
These are mostly young students who
have recognized the unfairness in the American
economic and political scene.
These young students have erupted in
protest groups wherever there are large
concentrations of students.
They call themselves: OCCUPY WALL
But, their names are changing daily.
The term “Occupy” seems to be central
to their goal.
Since these are poor students, they have
nothing more to use than their voices and their
But the American media has taken swift
notice of the “Occupy” groups wherever they
Irate poor students have always been a
thorn in the hide of governments since the
beginning of civilization.
Poor young students are willing to fight
and die for their beliefs.
As a consequence, they attract other elements
of society, who are angry, but unable to voice
their anger alone.
THIS IS HOW REVOLUTIONS ALWAYS START!
As we can easily see in the history of mankind,
when a population is hungry or oppressed by
their government for a long period of time,
the masses of people will revolt.
Revolutions are the only force all governments have feared
from the beginning of time.
An angry population unafraid of dying, will topple any
government, because even with their armies, kings and
dictators have to fear the defection of their loyal
troops or commanders to the side of the revolutionaries.
Before the 19th. Century, the countries of the world
were all ruled by dictators, whether in the form of Aristocracy,
or simply brute dictatorship, by a strongman or a general.
We remember how Shakespeare immortalized this fear
in the monologue given by Mark Anthony as he entreats the
Roman population to dethrone the new dictators who had
killed his friend Caesar.
This need to have the will of the people is
evidence of the fear of all governments for an
aroused and defiant public.
Today, whether in the West or the East, which
includes China, each and every government constantly
defends itself against popular uprisings, for they know,
full well, that such an uprising may result in their
Because people are willing to die
to relieve themselves of oppression, all governments
We are seeing examples of such
revolutions throughout North Africa
and the Middle East, at this very moment.
The human animal will tolerate oppression
only to that point when they can see that the
oppressor is about ready to completely control
and destroy them.
At this point, they instinctively revolt, to
save their lives.
The younger and bolder elements revolt
first. Almost always they are students.
When the angry masses see the rebellion
of their young students, a rebellion that has
some victory involved, these angry masses
lose their fears and they too step forward.
Governments, facing the overwhelming
numbers, back away.
The French Revolution is a perfect
example of what happens if the government
tries to defend itself.
The Guillotine was invented to separate the head from
the body of governmental resistors. There so many resistors
that a machine was made to do the job quickly.
No member of a modern government wants to face
that type of an exit. There is fear everywhere.
Every government in the world is watching
the U.S. and the explosion of anger presented
by these angry students.
Whether this explosion will ignite more
explosions amongst other minority groups
remains to be seen.
One thing is certain…
A very small segment of the American
population is winning enormous profits, whilst
the vast majority are slipping rapidly into poverty.
