Ahhh...here's the agenda of the "Occupy" movement, explicitly stated:
David Graeber: 'It strikes me that if one is going to pursue this to its logical conclusion, the only way to have a genuinely democratic society would also be to abolish capitalism in this state.'
Marina Sitrin: 'We can't have democracy with capitalism - Democracy and capitalism don't work together.'
Check out the video with Breitbart to start it off here.
Meanwhile, did you know that "People Aren't Smart Enough For Democracy to Flourish"--according to top scientists?
How convenient! This is clearly why we need the Lords and Masters of the Postmodern Political Left! Without people like Marina Sitrin et al to guide us and point us in the right direction, we might make THE WRONG CHOICES! Why, we would be a danger to ourselves and to others!
These Occupy fools and the powers behind them want one thing, and one thing only: POWER OVER OTHERS. Capitalism is an existential threat to them because without economic liberty, there can be no real personal liberty.
'Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.' ' Milton Friedman
'What our generation has forgotten is that the system of private property is the most important guarantee of freedom, not only for those who own property, but scarcely less for those who do not. It is only because the control of the means of production is divided among many people acting independently that nobody has complete power over us, that we as individuals can decide what to do with ourselves.' ' F.A. Hayek (The Road to Serfdom)

These Occupy people don't want FREEDOM; they want FREE STUFF at yours and my expense. ... more
