I hope.

It really only works when the message you have is something people care about. The occupy crowd tried passive resistance and it didn't work because the average person didn't care about their message.

Which was?

Yeah I'm a little fuzzy on that too.

And that is because the corporate-run media wouldn't let them get their message to the average person.

People who get their news exclusively from TV sources like Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, etc. would never find out that JPM Chase made a huge donation to the NYPD only a couple of hours before they started cracking down on OWS; they'd never know about that one cop in the Oakland  Schutzstaffel regiment that threw a hand grenade at a wounded protester, or that the grenade hit the protester right in the head and put him into a coma for a few days, or that that protester was an Iraq war veteran; they'd never know that Fuhrer Bloomberg gave OWS "ample" warning of less than two minutes to leave the park before the NYPD would "JUST FOLLOW ORDERS" and storm the place, or that this happened at 1:20 AM on a Tuesday, or that the NYPD ordered a media blackout right before this happened, or that nearly every Occupy encampment in the country from Manhattan to Oakland was overrun by cops almost simultaneously (within about 15 minutes of each other), or that DHS had a hand in this bit of unprecedented nationwide police coordination.

And they'd certainly not know that OWS is now technically a debt collection agency that buys credit card debt from other such organizations, nor would they know that OWS is different from all the other debt collection agencies because the Occupiers buy up people's debt for the express purpose of forgiving the debt.
