17. Okay, I teared up.
Edited on Tue Nov-22-11 10:28 PM by woo me with science
That is twice in the past two days. First it was Michael Chorost's words:

"The police officer is Congress. Our banks. Our clerics... The students are us... If I had to sum up the attitude of America's governing classes in one word, I would say: contempt.

We are seeing the beginning of a worldwide movement to fight for dignity and intelligent, collective governance.

And now this. Thank you for posting it.

We can talk about the details of the demands...but right now I am just so overwhelmed and joyful that this conversation is finally happening. We have been taught for so long that the way we do things is the only way to do things. To hear voices speaking out so powerfully for a society that values human lives and dignity above profit...

I love you, OWS. We are the 99 percent.
