Change the Rules!


  1. i'm not sure what to think of all this. is it good? sure. but what is the end goal of this? it strikes me as vastly disorganized. are there demands that i've missed? why was there a guy with a purple mohawk making out with a statue in the newspaper this morning?

  2. @freebones...perhaps this is an answer to your question...

    “Let me say, at the risk of seeming ridiculous, that the true revolutionary is guided by great feelings of love.” Che Guevara

    Maybe it is the very essence of the disorganization that gives it the feeling it is coming from the people.

  3. I went to the Occupy Wall Street event tonight; it was a solidarity march called by labor unions and others. THOUSANDS of people. Will write about it later.

    @freebones, I have read a lot of people (and esp. on the left) frustrated by the lack of demands of the group. But I find it oddly refreshing: their open-endedness, while it probably won't last forever, seems tremendously appealing and very radical, in exactly the best way that... talking about. Your comment is exactly on target. I love it when you quote Che, Annie.
