The Occupy rebellion has been squashed by the powerful new Empire.
Emperor Silvergold - "Good. Good! The Deflationary Power is strong with you, Young Satoshi. A powerful Coin you will become. Henceforth, you shall be known as Darth... Bitcoin."
"Yes, My Master"
"Lord Bitcoin...RISE."

So the Occupy movement has become the Zombie apocalypse?

Quote
Our movement is living through a painful rebirth… “There has been a unfortunate consolidation of power in #OWS,” writes one founding Zuccotti. “This translates into ideological dominance and recurring lines of thought. We are facing a nauseating poverty of ideas.” Burned out, out of money, out of ideas… seduced by salaries, comfy offices, book deals, old lefty cash and minor celebrity status, some of the most prominent early heroes of our leaderless uprising are losing the edge that catalyzed last year’s one thousand encampments. Bit by bit, Occupy’s first generation is succumbing to an insidious institutionalization and ossification that could be fatal to our young spiritual insurrection unless we leap over it right now. Putting our movement back on track will take nothing short of a revolution within Occupy.

Indeed. Bitcoin will be the force that chokes the monetary sytem, but not before it is used to further subjugate the poor. It will be decades (or 3 more movies) before Bitcoin fulfills its true Destiny to bring balance to the economy.

If Bitcoin becomes controlled by the evil Banksters, then for awhile the rebel forces will be on the defensive until they convince Bitcoin users to turn the power of Bitcoin against the evil empire. Bitcoin is itself neither good nor evil, but the design does favor the good side if the good side is vigilant.

Obviously they wouldn't gain complete control, but they could give large holders an offer they cannot refuse and then buy all the ASIC factories and strategic patents. They will then order an army of clones to restore order to the Empire and pwn the Bitcoin Network for years. What they don't know is that Satoshi had two children that will be the downfall of Darth Bitcoin.
Go ahead, ask me another silly question.

Who is Vader? Are you talking about Star Wars? I am just making a silly analogy in this off topic section because I am bored and frustrated with Bitcoin sitting at the starting gate.

It might only subjugate the poor because it cant be taxed and therefore cant fund social welfare programs.

I was thinking more along the lines that it can't be printed by a government to fund social welfare programs. I do think Bitcoin was created with egalitarian intentions, but those won't be fully realized until the current social-monetary power structure finally erodes into more evenly balanced economic system. Er.. I mean, the Evil Empire will be overthrown.

It was a stupid cause to begin with, we shouldn't blame "banksters". You should be more worried about the government taking away your rights. The guys who occupied wallstreet are just a bunch of socialist hippies.

No.  There were socialist hippies in the mix, but there are all kinds there.  Fiscal conservatives, market anarchists, libertarians, the homeless and the confused.  They had no clear direction, no leader and therefore a muted agenda.
