Satire is the quickest way to make a point. I also enjoy the irony of the fact that half of these anti-corporate protestors have an iPhone in their pocket.

The protests are not totally anti-corporate. They are just anti-corpocracy, and anti mega-corporations destroying any sense of economic and social justice, and laughing at us all the way to the bank (which they own too).

Economic and social justice? What exactly is that? No one ever seems to answer beyond some kind of general phrases that make no sense under scrutiny.

One definition of justice is "giving to each what he or she is due." The problem is knowing what is "due".

Functionally, "justice" is a set of universal principles which guide people in judging what is right and what is wrong, no matter what culture and society they live in. Justice is one of the four "cardinal virtues" of classical moral philosophy, along with courage, temperance (self-control) and prudence (efficiency). (Faith, hope and charity are considered to be the three "religious" virtues.) Virtues or "good habits" help individuals to develop fully their human potentials, thus enabling them to serve their own self-interests as well as work in harmony with others for their common good.

The ultimate purpose of all the virtues is to elevate the dignity and sovereignty of the human person.

Defining Social Justice:

Social justice encompasses economic justice. Social justice is the virtue which guides us in creating those organized human interactions we call institutions. In turn, social institutions, when justly organized, provide us with access to what is good for the person, both individually and in our associations with others. Social justice also imposes on each of us a personal responsibility to work with others to design and continually perfect our institutions as tools for personal and social development.

Defining Economic Justice

Economic justice, which touches the individual person as well as the social order, encompasses the moral principles which guide us in designing our economic institutions. These institutions determine how each person earns a living, enters into contracts, exchanges goods and services with others and otherwise produces an independent material foundation for his or her economic sustenance. The ultimate purpose of economic justice is to free each person to engage creatively in the unlimited work beyond economics, that of the mind and the spirit.

Economic justice and social justice are the same thing.

Economic "justice" is take from the productive to give to those who are not.

Social Justice is demonize anyone who disagrees with economic justice.

Consider guerilla warfare...if you find a gun that an enemy uses, do you ignore the weapon in some sort of declaration that using it is empowering the enemy somehow?

No, you use it against the enemy. Just as you use any tool.

Here we have a champion for technology... Too bad he doesn't write a sonnet for the ladies bunked 20 deep in something the size of an efficiency apartment. Those 18 hour days working overseas would make for a decent melody.
