  •  The problem w/occupy is that it's full of liberals (3+ / 0-)

    ...And getting liberals to act in a monolithic manner is like herding cats.  Occupy was a loose group of other groups of loosely affiliated people.  There was no grand strategy.  There may be a lot of agreement, but there is no strategy.  Everyone approaches the problem from a different angle.  

    It's easy to get conservatives to all do the same thing (note the success of the tea party).  They're authoritarian followers.  They get marching orders and carry them out.  

    Liberals are too worried about nuance, fact, gray areas, and minutia.  We also, as a rule, detest hierarchy.  

    It takes a very talented person a long time to get liberals to march in lockstep.   Everyone's natural tendency in liberal land is to run off and do their own thing.  

    •  Every group has a few leaders, even liberals. (0+ / 0-)

      The ones who really do the work need to get to work

      I would hope my Diaries would give the reader a Reality Check
