Oh dude, you’re picking sides in the hegemony and you have Occupy in your name?
Wow - you’re going to get it.

They don’t give a shit, they never did. You explained it to them as best you could several times, they just sat there and blinked.

Occupy is done and over; you can’t tell them any different, they stopped listening to you a long time ago. Move along….next….

You flagged my reply for review, LAist?

A few hours have past since I posted my reply to the comment linked to above. It would seem that the LAist’s moderator is sleeping in this morning…could be watching the Lakers.

Good thing that I caught the text of the reply before it disappeared in to Disqus’ dead letter bowels and I have my own blog to publish it with.


What does it mean when you take an entire movement of autonomous individuals, and call it “inept”?

It means that you know nothing about my history of participation with Occupy or my considered input to the movement to make it more effective. It also means that your regard for autonomy is over valued.

Perhaps it would be better to reflect on your own role in the world, and your own activism.

I have and that’s why I denounce Occupy for being inept. The world isn’t becoming a better place with you reacting to someone calling out a group or organization for ineffectiveness or apostasy, either.

Evil sometimes happens when good people THINK they are doing something about it.

That’s a convenient way of looking at the world when you don’t really want to be accountable for improving the world…give away any power you could have to fate.

Really? Alex Jones?

Occupy is kinda like that, too.

Nope, they're still not getting it about what it will take to win.

You’d think that I’m telling them to be a corporate drone instead of taking a couple lessons from them.

So Buzzfeed’s Eric Wolff got the scoop that Occupy San Diego’s investigation didn’t turn up: The Koch Brothers so called Path To Freedom enclave was in Carlsbad, not downtown as some occupiers thought:

I’m disappointed - I feel like a chump. I certainly can’t blame Martha or Mark for that: they worked hard and gave it their best effort. It’s just that Eric Wolff had to have his scoop instead of sharing his information with others before publication.

I think that the demonic duo will get the message with this downtown.

Since the Senate ratifies treaties, does anyone want to participate in a series of non-violent, completely legal action(s) at our Senator’s field offices in town?
