I've seen all kinds of well meaning and not so well meaning people with all kinds of good, bad and indifferent ideas about what OWS should or should not do? Basically, they are shoulding all over OWS. But so far, at least, I haven't seen a single idea about how to actually get OWS to change direction and do whatever it is you would like it to do. Without that, it seems to me, any suggestion, no matter how brilliant, is just pissing into the wind. I'd really like to know what people think of that.
For me, well, like anybody else I have ideas regarding what way the movement should go, but mostly I don't expect much in terms of my ideas being taken seriously and I'm along for the ride, which so far has been terrific. I do go to GAs when I can and I raise ideas when I think it appropriate and when I think I'll get a fair hearing. Mostly I follow the beatitude of the great Socialist leader Eugene V. Debs when he said:
"Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall not be disappointed."
