Yet another anti-liberty idea created by the pro-oligarchy neo-cons is the idea of "tort reform," and they have made an effort to push this idea in many states. As the power of the people to control their lives is limited through the bribing of our political representitives and the packing of the courts with pro neo-con judges, "tort reform" represents an attack on yet another Constitutional protection from these preditory powers.
When people are deprived of life, liberty, or property by corporations and other special interests (granted unfair power by government collusion) the last resort for redress is civil court, and the right of judges and juries to grant unlimited levels of compensation to victims becomes the last remaining check on the overt tyranny of these special interets.
Therefore, I think Occupy should oppose "tort reform" everywhere it is on the ballet, and work to overturn it in those states that have so cynically adopted it.
