The ongoing wave of Occupy Wall Street demonstrations, as everybody knows, is a symbol of protest against social and economic inequality, high unemployment, greed, and corruption in the United States.
The protesters call themselves the 99%, which refers to the growing difference in wealth in the U.S. between the wealthiest 1% and the rest of the population.
Capitalism has created a no-win situation for the U.S. economy. In other words, the liberal ideology will not be able to reform the economic system.
Thus, the Occupy Wall Street protests are expected to continue until the complete collapse of the U.S. capitalist system.
The Great satan U.S. is currently facing major internal and external problems. And U.S. allies in Europe, the Middle East, and other regions are trying to address serious political and economic problems.
The U.S. government has not been able to make a decision on how to deal with these challenges because the domestic and foreign problems are completely interconnected. This inability to deal with the situation in an efficient manner has resulted in the use of excessive force against protesters in a number of U.S. cities.
Some political analysts believe that the protests can be brought under control through a proposal for a new economic structure. This new structure could be based on the liberal ideology. However, liberalism like capitalism has nothing new to offer the U.S. economy.
Liberalism still has many proponents in the cultural and social spheres, but it is a dead ideology in the economic sphere.
The liberal prescription should also have something in common with social democracy. This could be viewed as a tranquilizer for the troubled U.S. society.
The era of the capitalist system is over, and everyone is waiting for significant change in a country that was once regarded as the land of opportunity but where everyone is now looking for an opportunity to express their dissatisfaction with the economic and political system.
