    Well said. Especially when the complaints about the cover don't take into account the words and signs on the cover.

      in the first place, many here complained that it was not "The 99%" or OWS specifically. It irritated me to no end. We are not the only people out there doing this! One of the things I love about the worldwide protests has been the worldwide solidarity- whether it was the Egyptian protestors buying pizza's for the Wisconsin protestors, or the sympathy rallies held across the globe after Oakland. Complaining that "they" aren't paying enough attention to US and too much to our Arab and European brothers and sisters is contrary to the spirit of OWS, in my opinion.

      As well as a bit of further explanation about this post in general.

      Thanks again. :)

        my comments are not directed at you. I liked your diary and think it was fair game to bring it up, and as you always do provoke discussion.I'm just irritated by some of the comments in response.

          1) I wouldn't mind at all if you thought this diary was misplaced or unnecessary. I welcome respectful dissenting.

          2) I added my most recent note to this diary as a response to some of those negative comments to which you're referring.

        I agree with SwedishJewfish. My comments aren't really directly at you either. It's a thoughtful diary that, despite my disagreeing with your premise, is worthy of some spirited debate. My frustration is directed more at those who are responding in an ethnocentric vacuum of disinformation and lack of knowledge about Fairey or art.
