The Occupiers are unthinking drones manipulated by academics who, for the moment have seized the halls of power. But when this election rolls around they're probably going to be tossed out on their behinds. And when they are, the Occupy movement will have no reason to hold back any more. They will become a manifestation of the violent uprising that people like Frances Fox Piven have been cheering for since the 60's.
That's when they can stop pretending that what they want is to build something new, and acknowledge the fact that what they really want is to see the world burn.
I caught a pretty serious cold in the midwest last week and I'm still recovering. So rather than write something pithy, I'll drop this on you and all the Occupy Zombies that haven't been shot... yet.
