2. I don't think anyone is going to save it this time
It's global this time, and it's too corrupt.

Capitalism is going down this time. And we are all Roosevelts (was just thinking how it was FDR who saved capitalism in the 30s).

I think that's what people who keep talking about OWS as a protest and asking for demands don't understand. It's not about negotiating with a wickedly destructive system. It's about creating something new to replace it. I was listening to a livefeed from Oakland, and they weren't like "Oh hey guys, what crumbs can we ask the owners for?" They were like "Hey guys, how can we become completely self sufficient and disengage from capitalism?"

We are going to save democracy. By destroying capitalism.
