US – Protest Politics – Occupy Continues to be Clueless about Political Power – 23 February 2012


Here is another example of why Occupy failed us…if the power of the people consists of walking off the plank and dooming some politicians, then we won’t have even the possibility of government to protect us from corporations. And unless the people figure out some “non-statist” way to do that (good luck with that, folks), this cartoon is just a recipe for handing government to the conservatives, like protesters actually did in Spain’s recent elections. Unless you’re comfortable with phrases like “President Romney / Gingrich / Santorum” or “Prime Minister Harper”, that’s a stupid plan. But hey, don’t let me interrupt the popular anti-politics message. Getting rid of politicians would TOTALLY solve things…
