I really do hope they come back in the fall of next year and start up the same stupid ship they just ended. They are the gift that keeps on giving.
    Is there just one thing coming from OWS that you can embrace without your insulting descrriptions of the protesters and those who support the movement ?

    We witnessed the same thing with the powers that be, that demonized the Vietnam war protesters and the Civil Rights movement.

    Yes, it's the same thing happening all over again. Reactionaries will base their criticisms on blanket smears and irrationality rather than precise judgement and reason. Many people find it much easier to call somebody a 'hippie' than look at what they're standing for. yuban51's post at the top of the page is an example.

    Martin Luther King Jr. would also support the protests; he would be standing alongside his fellow protestors and would also be a leading figure.

    Yes. I am not sure whether or not Dr. King was a socialist, though.

    I don't speak for most of the anti-OWS crowd, but the reason why I oppose OWS is because of their despicable and hateful actions, and their carelessness and selfishness for the consequences of their actions, not for their message.
    If they had been peaceful but still had the same message, there wouldn't be the fights and brawls common in OWS movements and the US government and many would respect their right to speech.
    However, they have been very violent and made very many criminal acts, and made a huge despicable mess of themselves. That's why we oppose them.
    Besides, their message has merit, albeit that they suggest to the wrong cause and has the wrong solutions
