Subject: RE: BS: Wall Street Protesters...
I've been through this many times in my long membership of the Communist Party.
You know what......It just makes you feel better, a minority(and you will always be a minority) standing up to injustice, but in reality it just makes matters worse, entrenching opinions on both sides....and that always means "worse" for the poor and underpriviliged.
The only way in which society can be changed in a meaningful way is through unity and in our case that means we shall almost certainly never see it....but our grandchildren might!
It means finding common ground with the people who are not politically motivated, who want a quiet life, a reasonable standard of living, a little freedom and a sensible lifestyle.
This may come as news to you guys, but the grass roots folks of America and Britian have no taste for Martyrdom..
