    In all countries, including the USA, Greece, and Spain, there are considerable portion of the population of each generation that might be labeled as the “Half-wayers”. These are the unsuccessful but still they are grateful and defendant of the socio-economic system in place. They are mostly of older ages, but still you can find them in less ambitious youth.

    The Half-wayers are middle-classers who feel indebted to the unjust and corrupt system because deep in their hearts and minds they believe that they have achieved and acquired more than what they fairly and normally deserve. This kind of people might not be corrupt; but they assume that without such system they would have been ruined and abject losers. This is the only reason why they defend the system meekly and brutally; or at least fear and reject any movement that might bring possible change.

  3. Yeah and I don’t get how somebody can be one of these half-wayers as you say for their entire lives and not wake up at some point. I’m there every day and slowly but surely people are waking up.

    There is a good chance that Ron Paul will not win the Republican ticket. And even before that I would advise him to quit the Republican Party and run as an independent after negotiating deep reforms program for his presidential campaign to create the New USA with all the different components of the Occupy Wall Street movement. People have to remember and appreciate his clean and strong opposition record. If he succeed then the new government of new USA will be formed from among the 99% and they will bring the real changes.

    I think people have to extend the Occupy movement to the elected lower and upper houses of representatives, including the president. And also to address the mighty and bloating bureaucracy of public service which include the police and the security forces.

    Representatives and bureaucrats are the engines and the bodies of corporate greed vehicles. Corporate executives are in the driving seats whether in Wall Street; government departments; or the White House. And they are well protected in Wall Street.
