Money is root of problem

Re: Occupy Victoria needs focus, Oct. 13-19

If you want some idea of what these protests are about – try this. Get 100 people to go to their bank and try to withdraw their money all at the same time. See what happens. The bank will shut down because they don’t have any money. They loaned it to governments to squander  for political purposes (i.e. maintain power). Banks made, and are making,  bad loans which they write off in the tens of millions each year. It is OUR Money. So who is to blame? The 99 per cent who weren’t paying attention and now have received a wakeup call.
