Have you been following the Occupy Wall Street movement that is growing across our nation?  This is now turning violent and our own President Obama has done nothing but appease them with encouraging and understanding words. This directly threatens our Judeo-Christian foundation to the vey core and all Christians need to know the diabolic attack on our faith.

Occupy Wall Street (OWS) is a movement whose activism is planned and coordinated via a free, open-source social-networking website that is maintained by an independent group of organizers who describe themselves as “committed to doing technical support work for resistance movements.” Strongly anti-capitalist, OWS characterizes America as a “ruthless,” materialistic society where the chief objective is to “always minimize costs and maximize profits”; where “lives are commodities to be bought and sold on the open market”; and where “the economic transaction has become the dominant way of relating to the culture and artifacts of human civilization.” The “deep spiritual sickness” that necessarily results from this repugnant philosophy of perpetual economic “growth for the sake of growth,” says OWS, has caused “vast deprivation, oppression and despoliation … to cover the world.” OWS’s prescribed remedy is to replace the foregoing arrangement “with a society of cooperation and community” – i.e., a socialist economy.

In October 2011, dozens of University of Pennsylvania professors signed a pro-OWS petition which gave further insight into Occupy Wall Street’s worldviews and objectives. Most notably, the signatories lauded the movement for “express[ing] widespread anger with the economic and political disenfranchisement of the great majority of the American people”; derided “a system that provides increasingly few opportunities for the majority –– the 99% –– while generating vast profits for a tiny minority”; demanded “an end to the extreme inequalities that structure our society”; complained about inadequate government funding for “our social safety networks, … infrastructures, social and education programs, and workers’ wages, rights, and benefits.” Ultimately, the professors “celebrate[d] the creative and intellectual work of Occupy Wall Street as an essential partner to our own efforts to facilitate the emergence of a better social order.”

OWS organizers advocate the imposition of a “Robin Hood Tax” (i.e., taking from the “rich” and giving to the “poor”) on most goods and services worldwide, with the aim of using its generated revenues to fund social-welfare programs. Such a tax was originally the brainchild of non-governmental organizations based mostly in the United Kingdom. A prominent supporter of the Robin Hood Tax is the economist Jeffrey Sachs, a key member of the George Soros-funded Institute for New Economic Thinking.

About the Author

Virginia Christian Alliance
The mission of the VIRGINIA CHRISTIAN ALLIANCE is to promote moral, social and scientific issues we face today from a Biblical point of view. In addition we will refute and oppose, not with hate, but with facts and humor, the secular cultural abuses that have overridden laws and standards of conduct of the past. We will encourage Christians to participate in these efforts through conferences, development of position papers, booklets and tracts, radio/TV spots, newspaper ads and articles and letters-to-the editor, web sites, newsletters and providing speakers for church and civic meetings.
