Panic of the Plutocrats

“The way to understand all of this is to realize that it’s part of a broader syndrome, in which wealthy Americans who benefit hugely from a system rigged in their favor react with hysteria to anyone who points out just how rigged the system is.” — Paul Krugman.

What’s interesting to me about the Occupy Wall Street protests is that it’s not about Republican/Democrat or even class warfare. It’s about people finally getting pissed off at the entire broken system and demanding changes be made. Hopefully, they keep up the occupation through the winter and into the spring.
