    I had a conversation about this with my sister.

    I told her that its wrong for the OWS to hurt the middle-class, by stopping commuters and small business-people. She countered, by pointing out the bus & garbage worker strikes by blacks in the South, during the Civl Rights era. Those acts screwed with the middle-class too.

    is it wrong to seek justice & change, by engaging in acts that disrupt the lives of your fellow citizens? Im not sure.

    Comparing civil rights protests to ows is asinine. Your sister hasnt got a grasp on reality and sounds more like a spoiled ows type.

    It's certainly disconcerting to harm the very people you claim to represent and seek to protect.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Especially if you're trying to garner any kind of popular support.

    I am sure. It is wrong. OWS is not helping their movement by pissing off those they are supposedly trying to help. OWS needs to make a statement by calling for (and doing it themselves) boycotts for all major businesses who are keeping the 1% in the 1% by moving jobs overseas, paying people **** wages and closing small businesses. As long as OWS and their members giving the 1% their money and only hurting the middle class they are a worthless group. I want to see them practice what they preach.

    stopping traffic on roads, bridges, and tunnels...isn't bad in itself.

    its all about what your goals are.

    if your goal is civil & human rights, more power to ya.

    if your goal it to piss off rich people? err.....umm...hmmm...

    Why would anyone want to piss off rich people and, if they did, do they believe that closing bridges will achieve that goal? And how would that further human rights?

    The rich have helicopters, or travel when they choose. You and your sister should really think this through, possibly by asking yourselves some basic questions.
