As resistance to global corporate governance increases worldwide, just coincidentally, security threats are everywhere, and legislation rushed into force giving police unprecedented, sweeping powers to spy on, intimidate, investigate and otherwise terrorize the 99%, under the guise of ‘national security.’ (Remember the G20, Toronto?)

This tells me that the people still have more power than we are led to believe.
