In years following 1929 Wall Street crash, FDR established Regulation of WS by SEC, Security Exchange Commission, to prevent manipulation by the wealthiest traders causing financial collapse of our country. GW Bush for 8 years greatly slacked off on regulation. The effect, of course, simply repeated the1929 disaster. We are supposed to have government of the people, by the people; instead we have corrupt capitalism (to be expected without regulation) with a huge number of lobbyist controlling our politicians. We need the OWS movement so that democracy in our wonderful country (that being the D o I, the Constitution and B of Rights, and the people.... NOT the Democrats and Republicans) doesn't die from the greed of the super wealthy.
