I don't advocate that OWS be violent. Not at this time in this place. It's a question of strategy and tactics though and not one of principle. I have a problem with people who would oppose all violence in all circumstances. Violence is, as one man once said, as American as apple pie. Let's not forget our country ws born in violence, and preserved itself and ended slavery through a terribly violent civil war. George Washington was violent. Abraham Lincoln was violent. We have named streets and schools for Malcolm X and what did he say? "By any means necessary."
