      •  From Krugman (0+ / 0-)
        Krugman concludes that “high unemployment could become accepted as the new normal,” and worries that we’ll come to accept “a more or less permanent depression” as the norm – adding that “we could suffer endless, gratuitous suffering, yet the political and policy elite would feel no need to change its ways.”
        It feels to me as if we have a whole industry devoted to telling us NO NO NO when it comes to demonstrating against the status quo. It isn't so much that people aren't aggravated but they are told over and over and over again that demonstrating does not work - and oh by the way here is another petition for you to sign (don't you feel good?)
