ExposeOccupy. Soros: Collapsing US Economy to Spark Street Violence Posted on January 23, 2012 at 11:10 AM EST As the U.S. economy worsens, protests such as those carried out by the Occupy Wall Street movement will turn ugly, breaking down into waves of violent unrest across the nation, says billionaire financier George Soros.
“It will be an excuse for cracking down and using strong-arm tactics to maintain law and order, which, carried to an extreme, could bring about a repressive political system, a society where individual liberty is much more constrained, which would be a break with the tradition of the United States,” Soros tells Newsweek.

Walkupy. OccupyOurHomes. The People Occupy. Occupy The Banks. #OWS Scoop.it. Occupy Wall Street celebrated its six-month anniversary yesterday in Zuccotti Park with a fast-forward replay of last fall: re-occupation, carnival, violent eviction, defiance.
A morning chalk-in for families and an early afternoon march around the Financial District (actually, two: one silent and one rowdy) began a day of reunion at the movement’s New York home. As re-renamed Liberty Plaza (or Square or Park) became full once again with hundreds of people, the hardy organizers who’ve spent the winter in meetings and arguments were drowned out by joiners, curious visitors, drummers and reporters. A 24-hour re-occupation was called, and new nonviolent defensive formations were rehearsed en masse. They danced, chanted and held a General Assembly. Numbers swelled to close to a thousand when marches from the nearby Left Forum conference joined later in the evening. We ARE the 99 Percenters ! In history, the FBI has infiltrated the mob, some 1% biker gangs, white Aryan resistance , KKK, Neo-Nazis, and more groups.
For the majority of these groups, arguably, there were actually bad people, many of them committing murder, selling drugs, in short, engaging in much of what legally would be called “malum in se” meaning, something like murder or child abuse, something that is wrong from a moral and ethical viewpoint. There are other classes of “crimes” which are called “malum prohibitum” meaning they are wrong solely because you have passed a law making them wrong. Making alcoholic beverages and selling them, became malum prohibitum with passage of the Volstead Act…even though, beer and wine had been made for centuries…and it was not illegal then, so, for a period of time, alcohol production, sale, distribution became malum prohibitum, but really, in the minds of most, it was never malum in se.
