Good post Will.....and I agree.
I am a supporter of Occupy Wall Street...in spite of some of it's all-to-obvious problems.
I hope that it will grow out of these problems as the movement matures...I guess we shall see.
One of the things I'm personally worried about is what will happen if #OWS fails.
Remember those riots in the U.K. a few months back?
The media tried to paint them as the mere random rioting by a few young hooligans.
But they weren't, they were the attempt by a group to express their anger against a system they saw as meaningless and without any hope of being beneficial to them...and those riots were how that group expressed their anger.
My fear is that if Occupy Wall Street fails, similar riots will begin in the U.S.
And those riots could be MUCH worse.
That's why, in spite of it's faults, I hope that #OWS suceeds. I hate to think of the alternatives.
But that's just my personal opinion.
Shame on you Shakyamuni for setting the precedent of leaving home.
Did you think it was not there--
in your wife's lovely face
in your baby's laughter?
Did you think you had to go elsewhere (simply) to find it?
