Response to patrice (Reply #55)

Thu Aug 23, 2012, 11:02 PM

60. I very much appreciate your response

and the tenor thereof.

I do not put my faith in Occupy, for the many reasons I've stated in this thread. That does not mean, however, that I do not share many of its goals - nor does it mean that those goals are not achievable through other means. I am confident that you understand that, given what you have said here, and the way you have graciously stated it.

I totally agree with your remarks about the Teabaggers - but respectfully disagree that Occupy is the only effective counter we have.

Sadly, the infiltration of Occupy by Libertarians and Teabaggers is not the only challenge OWS must face up to, and ultimately deal with. Some of "your own" (as they claim to be) are obnoxious, self-appointed spokespeople for the movement - and they have been extremely detrimental to your cause. Their "with us or against us" attitude has turned many of us off - permanently, I'm afraid.

Quite frankly, I read some of the comments here from those who deign to speak on behalf of the movement - and realize without hesitation that I do not want to be associated with such people in any respect. If they are representative of what OWS stands for, I cannot, and will not, stand with OWS. And if they are not representative, OWS should have said so a very long time ago.

Peace be with you, and may your endeavors towards positive change be successful and rewarding.
