  •  Exactly. (0+ / 0-)

    Wiseacre's summation is breathtaking in both its ahistorical cluelessness and its rotten aping of reactionary memes about radicalism.

    We should rid our ranks of all impotent thinking. All views that overestimate the strength of the enemy and underestimate the strength of the people are wrong. -- Mao Zedong

    •  Wrong. I lived it in the 60s and 70s. (0+ / 0-)

      I don't want to get in an argument with you.  But your model has been tried since 1917 and despite the best efforts of many, it doesn't work and it can't work.

      The most effective radical who ever lived was Jesus Christ.  Some twisted His message for their own purposes, but it remains the best, most pure and revolutionary statement there is:  love your neighbor as yourself.  

      That is what is happening at OWS as a practice, not having anything to do with any religion or deistic thought.  They love all humanity and want the best for all humanity.

      That is why they will win.

      Which side are you on?
