"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
My biggest problem with this OWS movement is all they seem to do is protest and dont do anything to bring about change. The majority of people who participate continue to support these large business, politicians who provide corporate tax loop holes, and everything else they protest. If these people wanted to make a difference, they'd do it with their money and their votes. But most of them don't want to be inconvienced at all so they aren't willing to do that. They just want to yell and cry about things.
I regard the occupiers as rebels without a clue. I think that they would be better off getting a room with the teabaggers and just have one big circle jerk.
