OCCUPY DC vs. Employment Offers ('We won't do that')

The video below is from Accuracy in Media.
Quoting the text uploaded with the video:
“After more than a month of protest demands for better employment opportunities and benefits, Accuracy in Media saw fit to test their desires with...employment applications. Our ‘headhunters’ were treated to every excuse as to why these jobs aren't good enough for them. We guess middle management opportunities with healthcare and 401k benefits aren't desirable anymore.”
Does the Occupy D.C. mob want to work?
Apparently, not:

They're right and they're wrong. Their priorities are clearly wrong.

With dreams of instant gratification through progressive involuntary exploitation of others, there is no hope they will ever change. Well, not until the welfare system in this nation is redesigned to rehabilitate individuals who falter instead of sabotaging character development and acting as a de facto mechanism for redistributive change (for providers and beneficiaries). Although, there is still the open question what society should do with criminals and individuals who choose to fail. The former should probably be removed from society, and the latter left to their own devices until they merit resolutions attributed to the former class.

Vive la révolution!

No, we should probably correct corruption of authoritarian interests, then hold accountable corruption in the exception, both of which can be traced to a failure of secular institutions to impart moral knowledge to members of a free society; and, in fact, promoting progressive corruption of individuals and society.

While one of the women in the video does not respect the individual dignity of others, at least she properly values the human lives she has brought into this world; although, she cannot reconcile her rejection of gainful employment and protesting for days on end. Anyway, she has crossed, at minimum, half way to an enlightened state.

I'll have to check out the rest of your site some time.

On the matter of corruption of public and private interests, it would be desirable to determine whether authoritarian interests were instigators or conspirators. We cannot afford to permit corruption of authoritarian interests to proceed unchecked; and, it is probably a good idea to review the dynamic which exists between the two sectors of our society in order to mitigate further occurrences of corruption. Then there is the dynamic which exists between domestic and foreign interests, including sovereigns.

Anyway, there has been a substantial quantity and quality of twisted comedy to emerge from this latest movement of voluntarily exploited but disgruntled people. I doubt any of them protested when our government proposed and imposed general and mandated tax increases the last several years. I would also guess that some (and maybe most) were probably front and center to defend the illegal aliens who have displaced them and increased the cost of their education as well as other societal benefits. They were certainly present for the "out-of-sight and out-of-mind" policies which shift environmental hazard to distant nations and impose progressive obstacles to domestic resource recovery and energy production.

I don't know. Maybe it's sufficient to treat the observable symptoms, ignore the causes, and leave them to fester and reemerge at a later date. That has clearly worked so well in the past and continues to be an effective means to dispossess a progressive number of Americans.

The solution is dirt simple (and never gonna happen):

1) Completely eliminate from every level of government anything that even smells like "charity".

Government has no business engaging in "charity". Government is -- by far -- the least effective and the least efficient in delivering "charity" (or any other goods or services). Government "charity" is NOT charity -- it is the forcible redistribution of wealth.

You start by immediately and completely eliminating Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid. That alone balances the federal budget and produces a surplus.

2) Seeing as how government is the least effective and the least efficient in delivering any goods and any services, you completely eliminate as many government bureaucracies as possible (especially at the federal level).

There you have it -- dirt simple and never gonna happen. Instead, all of Western Civilization will collapse under the weight of the entitlement mentality. The collapse has already begun. Ironically, that collapse began in the cradle of Western Civilization -- Greece.

The violent anarchy you see in Greece and throughout the "occupy" mob is the prologue to full on civil war (driven by the entitlement mentality). These are nothing but common thieves. If government bureaucrats will not steal for them by proxy, they will do it themselves in the streets.

But, honestly, Medicare recipients are just as criminal as the punks in the streets. The entire society is infested with the entitlement disease. It will be the death of us all:

Western Civilization -- it was nice while it lasted. Say goodbye.

P.S.) I left out a critical third component -- eliminate crony capitalism:

A) Ditch the entire tax code and implement a flat tax. Outlaw tax deductions of every sort (for individuals and especially for business).

B) Eliminate all corporate charity. That starts with completely eliminating the entire DOE folly of subsidizing the abject failures associated with so-called "Green" energy.
