    I thought that as a whole this was thought provoking but disagreed with the application of yesterday to today. While I agree the Constitution was written to protect the interest of an elite few. I disagree with the notion that OWS is trying to link back to any specific movement of a former time as the Tea party has done.  I think the OWS is about the here and the now and the application of constitutional rights as they exist within the context of today's society. Your Diary however is food for very good thought:)

    •  The Myth of the Elite Constitution (0+ / 0-)

      must be debunked by US more than any other group in our society.

      It is just not historically accurate or philosophically sound as a premise or contention.
