Occupy Implosion

I have a feeling that the "Occupy..." movement may be collapsing in on itself. Today I heard that the Occupy Albuquerque movement was changing its name to "Unoccupy Albuquerque" because someone thought that referring to the movement as an "occupation" might be insulting to native Americans because their country is already under occupation by white people. *facepaws* There was a bright moment a few weeks ago when this fight was all about the inequalities between the rich and the poor. It was about corporate greed. It was about the government being owned by lobbyists and Big business. Now it is starting to degrade into an ultra-liberal hippie love fest. It's nice to hear a voice from the Left being heard after the cacophony from the Tea Party, but now the pendulum is beginning to swing a little too far to the left. Soon there will be sound bites like the one I heard a few years ago when an anarchist was interviewed during a G8 Summit protest. Within a few minutes he was talking about the system of government that would be established if the Anarchists were in charge. *headdesk*
