I’ve avoided political news this November while doing the post-a-day project. But this seems important:
This is going around Facebook amongst my more politically progressive friends. The knock against Occupy Wall Street early on was that they didn’t know what they wanted, or at least couldn’t articulate it. Hell, even I believed that. Thing is, they knew what they wanted: It was just some of the stuff that you’re never supposed to seriously question if you’re American. It upsets certain people. The article “connects the dots” (as it says) to explain why there was a sudden, apparently coordinated, and frequently violent dismantling of OWS encampments around the country in the last week or so.
I suggest reading the article. If it is right, we should be considerably more troubled than we appear to be.
