    Well.. for one, tolerance takes work. Secondly, prejudice is human nature. 10,000 years ago if a guy saw a tiger eat one of his buddies it worked to his benefit to assume the next tiger would act the same way. Today we see on the news a story of some corrupt exec, and it creates the template that bank exec = corruption.

    That and our pop culture tends to be very binary. Every show or movie has good guys and bad guys. Even our politicians try to group us into good (the average joe) and evil (CEOs) for their own gain.

    To understand the reality that everyone exists on some grey scale in the middle is difficult. But we know it's true when we stop to think about it. It's why we love fictional heroes who aren't always good... like Tyrion Lannister, or Walter White, or Lisbeth Salander... or even Christian Grey. :)

    The federal reserve is what runs our country, in the great depression the federal reserve was founded and that was the day America died. The federal reserve is private and the bankers that run it have admitted so. you must wake up and realize all these wars,911 gulf of tonkin etc was set up for money only look back in history and you will realize what I'm saying is true. links below

    This was all predicted by george orwell in 1919

    these should help you wake up, all it requires is an open mind. These ideas are all supported by Ron Paul, Joe Rogan, Jesse Ventura, And Alex Jones. This is no joke

    By releasing bankers info let's them know they are not gods.

    Because publishing hacked information is going to undermine the egos of guys who command trillions of dollars and have the ability to manipulate entire financial markets. Bernanke is sweating bullets, I'm sure.

    Here's the deal about successful finance guys. Whether they've made their achievements screwing people over or trying to be an honest market participant, they've got cash and mobility. Unless we've all got access to SAMs and tail numbers, the only person who needs to be afraid is the immigrant doing the landscaping on the banker's property, cause he'll be out of a job when the rich guy packs up shop and moves to Singapore.

    An open mind is a great thing, but you have to be able to connect the obvious dots before it's of any use.
  9. Why can't Anonymous do something awesome like erase Sallie Mae servers? That place sucks and is completely responsible for raping citizens' up the arse w/ dirty, diseased dildos. I could buy two houses in NYC with the interest (alone) that has accrued on my account. Ridiculous. Shame on them.

    I appreciate what Anonymous is doing, especially because the gov doesn't give a **** about anyone. So long as the banks and oil companies are making their big bonuses, who cares about people like me, breaking her back going to work 45+ hrs a wk, and still living paycheck-to-paycheck despite having a master's degree? Obviously not the gov.

    I should state, however, that not everyone as individuals deserves what Anon is doing; they are generalizing, which is exactly what our gov is doing. I suppose it's the cause that separates us from them.
  10. Nope.
