Occupy Wall Street

More than a hash-tag #occupywallstreet is protesting against social and economic inequality, corporate greed, and the influence of corporate money and lobbyists on government, among other concerns. The author of Psalm 72 prescribes the following remedy:
“Teach the king to judge with your righteousness, O God; share with him your own justice, so that he will rule over your people with justice and govern the oppressed with righteousness. May the land enjoy prosperity; may it experience righteousness. May the king judge the poor fairly; may he help the needy and defeat their oppressors.”
