I am not so worried about what appears to me to be feeble attempts on

the part of MoveOn to co-opt us, but I wanted to respond to the last

point. I think that because they are so "embedded in the current

system" that that makes them an enemy, until they prove otherwise.

Same goes for the police who yes are part of the 99% but so far stand

with and protect the 1%.

 

MoveOn's list of goals are, especially in the case of the last one,

contrary to the goals of myself and many who are part of this

movement. They seem to say that they are planning to make demands on

congress to pass legislation. I am against making demands other than

for autonomy and freedom. I am not sleeping on the ground in Liberty

Plaza so that someone in Washington will better represent me. I don't

have any faith left in Washington or this system. What I want is

already here in Liberty Plaza and I want to make it spread.
