Dear Government,

The people are coming for you, and they're really very angry. You can take away everything you're supposed to provide, and let people who have pseudo-entitlement have everything they want and don't need, but you will never take away the hope and determination that citizens of nearly every country in the world still have. These protests against the wealth obsessed egocentric financiers are just the start of a long struggle to return democracy to its true meaning- a government that represents all of its citizens, not just those with the biggest bank accounts. The mainstream media are not, and will not start, reporting this other than to gloss over it or draw on the violence that stems from it. Bailing out bankers and cutting public services was never going to please people, so this is hardly unexpected- if you cut back, people will fight back. You can also expect people to start getting angry when they're arrested for just shutting down their bank account. We are all equal, we all deserve an equal slice of our country's pie, no matter which country that is. This is the closest thing to a class 'war' this generation is likely to have, I just hope we all win.
