Occupy Wall Street: Strike The Root! Video Contest

Need $400. Strike the Root has a vid contest!

 There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root. – Henry David Thoreau
Striking the root is a concept advocated by abolitionist, individualist anarchist and trancendetalist Henry David Thoreau. He believed that striking the cause (the “root”) was preferable to hacking at the effects (the “branches”).
The effects of corporatism and subsequent gaps in wealth that exist between the haves and have nots are obvious. Those active with Occupy Wall know this better than most. However, to not recognize that these are only things that stem from a root cause is to unfortunately miss the matter .
