i don't know if we should lock these bankers/lobbyists/pols up once the protests are over. if seeking retribution were really what these protests are about, then they would be more violent.
i think we should forgive them for their sins - it is my belief that they are the poor, mindfucked victims of a sociopathic system. i think it would be wrong to blame them outright, and i expect to hear the nuremberg defense when they are brought to trial. i've alreadyseen videos of the NYPD saying "just doing my job" while they kettle and beat protesters. let's forgive them, put them out on the street, and redeem themselves by working their way back up the chain like the rest of us.
we MUST, however, enact serious reform at the government and policy level in order to ensure that this unholy corporate-political alliance never happens again.
caveat: there may well be some real sociopaths in the 1%. they are likely right at the top. maybe we could give them some kind of psych test for antisocial personality disorder?
