repression never works

#OWS is over this morning, but the 99 percent movement is alive and well.

Social repression works very much like personal repression. Ignoring or denying your true feelings might work for a little while, but sooner or later they resurface, usually with redoubled intensity.

Any society as dysfunctional as this one has to address the reasons for the dysfunction, because repressing awareness of them, as the billionaire oligarch Michael Bloomberg did last night in NYC, inevitably makes things much worse.

These protests were peaceful and employed only legal means -- this time.
