Couple of views from Tim Pool
who's in NYC at the moment covering events. He's spent more time with
OWS than any of us put together, so I think what he says should be listened to :
1) The Occupy movement isn't mainly about being anti-capitalist, but instead about highlighting and doing something about the collusion between
corporations and government.
2) OWS isn't a socialist movement, and has people from across the political spectrum. He says he thinks in his own view, it's more liberal reformist.
He wasn't really happy even adding liberal to it though with the negative associations that brings.
To those against OWS without hardly any facts to back you up : Probably important for you to have a think about, even though I don't have much faith
that you'll stop and actually do that. I guess things like this will just be breezed past and you'll just go back around in circles. Maybe because
division is the main idea here, whether you're openly for that or it's just been conditioned into you.
I'm just trying to help.
