EDIT: BoingBoing zitiert ein paar sehr schöne Umfrage-Ergebnisse von Leuten, die sich an den OccupyWallstreet-Protesten beteiligen:
„80% of those polled said that the rich should pay higher taxes and that it’s fair that approximately the top 10% of tax payers pay more than 70% of the taxes in the US and about 40% of employed people pay no income tax.
93% say that student loan debt should be forgiven
98% believe that health care should be free
98% believe that Insurance companies make too much money and some of their profits should be taken to pay for more healthcare for others
95% believe that drug prices should be controlled
88% agree with the statement that “The government should put some controls on CEO pay – like limited to 20x or 30x the lowest paid employee.”
93% believe that communications like cell phone and internet access be a right and not just reserved for the rich and we should have free internet and cell phone service as a national goal.
84% said they think that if a bank decides to implement a $5 debit card fee, the government should not allow it, while 16% said let them do what they want – customers can move.“
Ist natürlich nur ein Traum, dass die Proteste mal eine kritische Masse erreichen UND dann noch was verändern würden (Obama *hust*).
