    which perhaps you didn't see, but to reiterate, in a nation that has elections, public civil disobedience is productively brought to bear on elections as, for example, when Milosevic was removed.  Occupy Northfield has provided the basic training for understanding  OWS's main issue, money in politics. Viewing it makes you dangerous.  In this case the disobedience is in voting out all incumbents who won't promise what is required. Voters will no longer obey the big money.
