Re: Occupy Wall Street
These people won't get any traction - especially in the mainstream media who are deeply vested in safeguarding and legitimizing the status quo. But clearly protest is the only thing left to people. After all, wall street's corruption, criminality, and unrestrained political power are clearly supported by both parties. Every white house staff is crawling with goldman sachs employees and obama's current chief of staff is from jp morgan. The protests are an amateurish and naive acknowledgement that mainstream political action is useless in addressing wall st abuses. But their existence tells us about who owns our government and the ridicule heaped on them tells about who owns our media.
