I Am Not Moving

We are seeing a disconnect being expressed around the world through the Occupy Movement.  This disconnect is a growing gap between rich and poor . . . a growing frustration with vacating basic societal values in preference for monetary values . . . and a growing hypocrisy between what we say we believe in and our collective actions.

The following short video focuses on the hypocrisy between what is said by government, especially with respect to matters abroad, and the actions of the government with respect to its own people.  Admittedly, one can utilize various video clips strung together to emphasize a biased opinion . . . and this video is undoubtedly biased towards the Occupy Movement.  That said, the images shown do represent a stark contrast to the words spoken.  While I personally believe that clips chosen with respect to President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton create a one-sided, and perhaps unfair, image of them . . . it is clear that there is some room for improvement and work to be done at home to fit with the ideals expressed with respect to foreign policy.



 
Hey!! I'm That Poverty Guy . . . let's make a world of difference together.
