To the Editor,

Re: Attitudes are main issue, Letters, Oct. 20.

I’ve just read a couple of letters to the editor that miss the mark so badly regarding the Occupy Nanaimo movement which is a world wide phenomenon in sympathy with the U.S. Occupy Wall Street movement.

People all over the world are finally waking up to and disgusted by the complete corruption of their respective governments by the rich and powerful one per cent.

There is a class war going on as Warren Buffett has stated between the rich and everyone else and we (the rich) are winning.

These people who are finally standing up to power are merely reflecting in a peaceful way that the greed and corruption of unfettered capitalism powered by their almost total corruption of their respective government must come to an end for this planet and humanity to survive.

We have no problems that cannot be resolved rather quickly but greed and corruption of the few stands in the way of the solutions.

The reality is that we are all in this together, if we look up to or down at another person then we truly do not even have a clue who we are.

Truth and love are really one thing, you can’t have truth without love nor love without truth.

We are living in a reality that reflects lies not truth, cleverness not wisdom, selfishness not caring, duality not oneness.

Mind without heart cannot long survive and as Eckhart Tolle wrote: “it’s time to evolve or die,” and these Occupy people are trying to say to the closed mind and heart, it’s time to wake up.
