    It's a video of them and their names are posted on cards right in front of them, Redress. The topic of the session was "The Abolition of Capitalism".

    Here's a video of the Occupy Strategy Session at NYU. These people are the leaders of the movement: Video Reveals ‘Occupy’ Strategy to ‘Abolish Capitalism’ (With SEIU Help!) | Video | TheBlaze.com
    There aren't really any leaders of OWS, generally. There are different individuals who play more or less significant roles in guiding individual OWS events in the many, many cities around the world in which this is happening (i.e. there are guiding councils for each of the OWS cities), but it's really not that centralized at all, and there's a staggering, almost comical degree of divisiveness even within most of those circles (at least the ones I know about or have read about).

    I would consider people invited to an event called "Occupy Strategy Session" to be leaders of the movement. They aren't just letting Joe Schmo on the street come in to address these questions.

    Just because the Blaze and Breitbart says something is true does not make it true. In fact, it makes it highly questionable. In other words, do you have a non far right wing source for your claims?

    So if I ran an event called "hanging blacks with the Tea Party" I would be a Tea Party leader and would prove that the Tea Party really is racist?

    If you're not going to watch the video of these people in their own words then we have nothing else to say to each other.

    Of course they're not, but the point that I'm making is that the people involved in the Occupy Strategy Session really have very little control over the many, many individual OWS movements throughout both the country and the globe. The other point that I'm making is that they disagree internally to a farcical degree.

    If you are not going to try and have a rational discussion using reasonable sources, then no, we don't have much to discuss. "Because Beck told me so" is not a good debate argument.

    That's really dumb, Redress. It's a video of these people speaking about wanting to abolish capitalism. Because you dislike the messengers, you refuse to believe these people actually spoke the words coming out of their mouths.
