    Via occupy. Thank you for your perspective. I look forward to reading more of it. Cheers, brother

    •  That said, right there, has maybe done (0+ / 0-)

      something to keep people from dismissing the diarist.
      AoT, it's good to hear your story. MOT, it's good you appreciated it enough to say so.
      Me, I like to think we're grown up enough to share views with each other that may not be so mainstream, but are still a part of what is best about democracy.
      See, I remember the yippies, and what a bad name hippies got from some of the more extremist yippies of the 60s. I guess there's a lesson to be learned there, because now I suppose a sizable chunk of folks think the hippies were wrong, or that we failed. I think the movement got co-opted and the media sold out to the war machine.
       But I still know that we were right. Peace is the answer. Make love, not war. Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, and work to make everyone equal. Those are values hippies stood for, before and after the National Guard killed some of us at Kent State, and before the Democratic National Convention and Mayor Daley and the police riots. And they're values we still believe in. So does Occupy.
