the museum of endless growth
A lot of the people opposed to the occupation and some who are involved in it tend to
forget that #OWS doesn't oppose a system that's still viable.
The American economy and US government had already ceased functioning in any rational or self-sustaining way long before the occupation arose spontaneously. The resistance now occupies a cadaver, or more accurately, a zombie.
Credit default swaps and collateralized debt obligations, liars' loans and multi-trillion-dollar deficits, endless wars and the hallucination of endless growth -- these were the means by which the old regime destroyed itself.
The "stupid? or evil?" question remains interesting. Personally I'm leaning toward "stupid," or maybe even "unconscious."
