Quote from: Duckling on October 01, 2011, 07:12:18 PMEhh... Michael Moore, I think, has a lot of the right ideas, but goes about talking about them in the wrong way.
Quote from: Duckling on October 02, 2011, 11:15:33 PMNot those ideas.I meant that he criticizes large corporations for their misdeeds, owners of assault weapons, the Iraq War, and the healthcare system. I can sympathize with all of these.

The protesters are expressing anger at a corrupt political system that favors the wealthy investor class and ignores their interests; the sheer number of reforms that would need to be implemented to change that are mind-boggling, and wouldn't lend themselves to a protest message in any event. The protesters' dissatisfaction is message enough, in my view.You might appreciate the perspective of a journalist in England: http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/2011/oct/05/occupy-wall-street-demands
