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.
