Occupy Together continues to gain momentum from the impetus of Occupy Wall Street. I suggest the insightful song by Steppenwolf, “Monster/Suicide/America” as the theme song for the Occupy Together movement.
The words reinforce our understanding about who we know the Mon$ter to be. Who will not obey. Greed.
And though the past has it’s share of injustice
Kind was the spirit in many a way
But it’s protectors and friends have been sleeping
Now it’s a monster and will not obey…..
America where are you now?
Don’t you care about your sons and daughters?
Don’t you know we need you now
We can’t fight alone against the monster
