If you are not familiar with the Second Bill of Rights, you should be. Way back in 1944, just before the United States entered the second World War, amidst a time of great human suffering and sacrifice, FDR proposed an economic bill of rights, and the text of the speech rings truer than ever. And in this speech there is a powerful motto we can rally around. Use it wisely:
"Necessitous men are not free."
To me, those five words summarize all that Occupy is about, or should be about.
