Crazy that they’re arresting protestors on Wall Street while the men inside who caused our economic collapse are still running the show.
Crazy that teachers are asked to take cuts and “bear our burden” when we never reaped the benefits of an inflated, make-believe bubble economy.
Crazy that the very structures designed to make things safe are often the very systems that take away our safety.
Crazy that the debate quickly becomes “Who was right: the cops or the protestors?” without any distinction between system and people. Crazy that people can’t see how all the folks on the street are victims of a system that they don’t control.
Crazy that people jumped on Mitt Romney for saying that “corporations are people, too,” when the Supreme Court effectively said the same thing with regard to campaign finance reform, thus sanctioning kleptocracy and plutocracy.
Crazy that we let the power brokers frame the debate for us, set up the tribes for us and watch the tribes war so that in the end, nothing changes.
