Otherwise Occupied

What can I say about the Occupy movement?

The Occupy protesters I met were ordinary people. It was a combination of unemployed workers, soldiers, artists and students. A lot of bad things happened to drive them into the streets to protest. They use to have families, jobs and houses. If they had occupations they would not be Occupiers. They were like you, and at the rate things are going, you will soon be like them.

Some Occupiers recommend the book “From Dictatorship To Democracy” by Gene Sharp. He thinks leaders only have the power that people give them. They also recommended the late Czech dissident and playwright Vaclav Havel, who said that “Every joke is a tiny revolution.”

They said you are just one paycheck, car accident or cancer cell away from them. Work toward a creating a world where that won’t happen.
