You're right. It's hard to listen to the harsh criticisms of OWS too. It doesn't matter whether you agree with them; it doesn't even matter that
they're tilting at the wrong windmill. Protest and civil disobedience have a long and illustrious history in this country, and at the very least we
owe them some respect. On the other hand, I suppose, civil disobedience wouldn't have such an illustrious history if the practitioners were instead,
say, treated to tea and crumpets and handed warm blankets by the authorities....
