"They (Occupy) know precisely what they want: They want to reverse the corporate coup of that’s taken place in the United States and rendered the citizenry impotent. Those who are protesting the rise of the corporate state are the true conservatives; They are calling for the restoration of the rule of law. It is the radicals who have seized power and have trashed all the regulations and legal impediments to a corporate or reconfiguration of American Society into a form of Neo-Feudalism."

So, what has changed from the time that video was released to today? Has anyone gone to jail yet?

Is that your measure? Who decided that was the measure of success? Also, do most historical movements take place within a year or two? . Stay tuned :)

This is one of the best summaries of Occupy mission I've heard.

The conservatives line was excellent. And not because I would like to be lumped into what the majority view as the typical conservative human being, but because it takes a common talking point, another MSM hit word, and flips it on its head.

It makes people think.

Sure, most wont think about it at all. And some will read it and scream "Im not a conservative!!"...but a few will think about it, and then start thinking about other stuff....and off they go towards shedding this idiotic talking point culture.

People thinking for themselves is a good thing.
