The Occupy Education Continues
A huge coordinated attack in multiple cities occurred last night, in which even journalists were thrown in jail. Many protestors are being denied access to lawyers.
Bloomberg and the police are in direct violation of a court order to allow protestors back into the park.
In other words, the law has been broken, openly and nakedly. There will be no legal consequences for doing so which matter.
But the NY protestors built barricades while defending themselves, and they’re surrounding the cops now, at the park. In Oakland, the General Assembly refused to pass a resolution banning all violence and condemning all vandals.
Radicalization continues. The education continues.
The law in the US is, and has been for years, a tool which is used as a weapon. Some people are given a pass, others are hit with the full force of the law. That is to say, there is no rule of law in the US, it is a nation of people, not laws. This is well known in certain circles, but needed to be shown to others at the end of a nightstick.
I’m proud of the Occupy people, however, especially the Oakland bunch. A fool doesn’t learn even from their own experience. The occupiers are proving that many of them aren’t fools.
We’re years from the endgame, Occupy isn’t going to convince the elites to do the right thing, it is, in fact, convincing them to do more of the wrong things. OWS is necessary, but insufficient.
