Finally, this effort is feeling conclusive, which I hoped for from the outset 2+ yrs ago. With the discovery of the socialist emergence from the "Jewish settlements in the Pale," the pure negativity of academic oligarchy the possibility of scientific rehabilitation in an aboriginal context. Cultural "fleshing" will continue with reprints of currently-relevant recently-historical experiences, often gangster, while "the Pale" experience is solidified upto present revolutionary efforts. The hope is to create a hinge with which to restore revolution as evolution after the excessively long period of oligarchic occupation -since 500BC.

Then, probably, the entire blog will be consolidated and "put to rest" with the first wikified writing about the occupy dialectic two years ago.
Occupy economics --> dialectics (unfortunately)
Occupying university-taught economics will require understanding the underlying thought of academia and economics, which appears to be in a single word (that defines academia itself): the dialectic. I was tipped of by a description of communism as "dialectic materialism" in a 1960s book about Cold War spying. The fact that communism holds the key is not surprising to me as I see it as Plato's manifestation that "all kings shall be[oligarchic] philosophers."

Capital growth is waste that can be shown with simple math (for the top of the pyramid to rise a little the bottom must widen with geometrically widening proportions, with diminishing returns to the bottom; this is exaberated by greed at the top, of course.) Capital growth is capital construction that creates the structures for a yet-to-grow population. 

Pulling away from FB's in the moment existence is useful. And the word existence is telling -- we are circling around existentialism (again). A would-be "law giver" on FB's Repeal the Indian Act list predicted this in terms of heroin addiction, claiming that the junkies of Vanc. Occupy, especially the one that died, has been robbed of life's meaning, presumably by the 1% -- not everyone who is unhappy with the system needs daily total anesthesia!

Clearly the key and central word is "dialectic" which is (apparently) a way to leverage conflict so as to arrive at a "pre-determined" synthesis. This is contradictory on many levels, yet persists through the European ideology such that it shapes not only how we live, but all of our thoughts. Just as with economics (but not psychology) there are seemingly endless ways to abstract the process of the dialectic, but, primarily, it should be noted that it is ancient Greek and first formal treatments of it are in the works of Plato such as the Socratic Dialogs.

Ultimate development (but not evolution) of the dialectic come through Hegel and are introduced into the world of economics by Marx and Engels. Occupy Wall Street tends to describe it's name sake target as "corporate oligarch," but we see an obvious problem--no capitalist in his right mind would be even remotely concerned with communist "dialectic materialism." This also throws a wrench into the concept of Plutarchy, which implies a blending of Socratic oligarchy and aristocratic families, which were early corporations (with Roman, yet private armies--like the Bush or Saud families). (It may have been the Greek-born Roman counsel Plutarch who succeeded in this blending around the time of Christ by transporting the Socratic academy to Rome, putting the Roman Empire into high gear.) 

Further, the various definitions of dialectic raise questions about Occupy, as Occupy is self-described (not so much as leaderless, but) as rudderless-- it has no direction. In it's non-direction, it is synthesizing action that, by dialectics, should be pre-determined, and, from what I can see, is pre-determined to fail to accomplish anything as every other movement has, probably as they all follow the dialectic.

Seeing that the dialectic has flowed through the ages into economic control structures, and that those structures "disseminated" by people who don't really care too much about riches for themselves, only for the capital families, and presumably would like to succeed where they failed in the past (with communism) there is every reason in the world for Occupy to start occupying professors, specifically didactic professors. Dialectic for them is an argument they cannot lose -- if there is conflict, guess what(?), the rebellious student loses and gets a lower grade than a student would who who supports the professors' world-views. An open-mined professor (thus constructive) would naturally encourage research that is mind-changing, because that benefits the world (as my mentor/professor did -- though he had other damning issues).
