How can our overlords keep the underclass bickering while they continue to rob us blind?

i'm sure there's nothing more terrifying to our super-rich, elite overlords than watching the global awakening that's taking place...
Much like Anonymous, OWS is a new wave of protest, a direct and significant challenge to the elite who are unaccustomed to such confrontation.

And the one percent find such evolved protest—this kind of global awakening—absolutely bone-chillingly terrifying. If the elites can no longer exploit xenophobia, red state–blue state civil war, racism, sexism or homophobia, how will they keep the underclass bickering while they run off with the country’s wealth?

what i find particularly heartening is the sense of global solidarity that not only embraces the spirit of occupy movements across the country but sees the very real common ground shared by the protesters in tahrir square...
The Occupy protesters talk about Tahrir and Egypt’s youth not like they’re some foreign, abstract concept, but rather comrades in a common struggle. They express genuine love and solidarity for people who live 5,000 miles away from them, whom they’ll never meet, but with whom they recognize they have more in common with than Bank of America’s CEO.

and what's the next evolution for occupy...?
[T]here has been some indications that in the coming cold winter months, the occupations will move indoors to condemned buildings and foreclosed homes. Such a maneuver would again place Occupy at the forefront of creative protest.


If ever there was a protest group equipped to attempt such a feat, it’s Occupy.

i'm heading down to a general assembly later this morning... let's see what they're talking about as next steps...
