Why the Metamovement Will Ultimately Fail

Dave Pollard, How to Save the World, Oct 11, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Dave Pollard explains the metamovement and why - he thinks - it's going to fail. "The Metamovement is in essence a revolt against disempowerment, and, while government is the favourite whipping-boy, there is a growing awareness that globalization has led to corpocracy — concentration of power in the hands of the wealthy multinational business owners, who buy and sell politicians at will and hence control the laws, the regulations, law enforcement and other political decisions including when and with whom we go to war." Fair enough, and one wonders whether things are not yet bad enough (as he says) in North America for the protests to succeed.
