O.K., so I don’t totally agree with this, but it isn’t completely off and its quite creative. I’m not an ardent supporter of the “Occupy” movement, but neither am I an opponent. I believe in the crux of the movement and support it. My concern is that the message gets lost among those who are more interested in anarchy and simply costing cities millions without really thinking about who it is affecting. I believe in peaceful protests and believe that Wall Street must be brought under control or we will cede control to it (as if that hasn’t already happened).
2011 was the year of the protester – I don’t expect 2011 to be a passing fad (in fact this movement and similar ones will become global).
So, perhaps you aren’t a fan of the Occupy movement – but you certainly are fed up with Wall Street…try to enjoy the above cartoon.
