225. "Sheer numbers of people are not the answer"
My point exactly. Those sheer numbers have to actually do something OTHER than wave signs and peacefully march and sing from point A to point B. 500,000 people cheering Barack Obama at inauguration doesn't mean anything if Obama isn't going to really deliver on his promise of change. Neither does 500,000 people protesting peacefully at a permitted event.

500,00 people blockading Wall Street and proclaiming that they aren't going to move until corporate crooks are prosecuted? Well now, that would actually be something worth doing.
