Occupy Boston: How Do We Win?
"How do we win?" asks one of the protesters in the first video I've posted here. That's a question we're all asking, even if we don't agree with the politics of the Wall Street protesters. The non-responsiveness of our political system is creating a reaction - people want a voice.
I think we're fucked either way, but it's worth a shot.
I can go get a job busing tables, waiting tables, but none of them is commensurate with the skills that I possess from the army and along with my college degree.
This is about our right as Americans, and moreover as humans, to live lives of purpose and meaning.
The Tea Party is a reclaiming of power for the people, and perhaps the Occupy movement is an expression of frustration that will have similar impact.
