So, what did we learn today gang? We learned that Chris Hayes, his Nation buds and other really cool Leftists think that the occupying Wall Street circus of direct democracy is, like, awesome. Let's not mistake the Wall Street movement with a free market of ideas -- these crazy kids want their passions enforced. Of course, there's little danger in this happening. The passions of the young, unemployed Leftists beating drums on Wall Street are just the opening act for elite control over the economy. The elite aren't on Wall Street beating drums and dancing in their underwear -- they're making bigger plans, and if the plans ever materialize, these kids on Wall Street will be the first to experience suppression. Useful idiots don't get to set the rules.
Ideas are powerful, and the confused anti-capitalist ideas of the 40s, 50s, 60s have finally made their way into the mushy heads of enough young people through a process of devolution, so that now the chaos of passion and rage creates a delusional demand for direct democracy. The kids are just having fun, playing Che on Wall Street, 21st century style. They don't have jobs, so they need something to do. It's the media coverage like on Haye's show that turns the stomach and makes one wonder how we got to this place again -- and now they've even given up on ideology in favor of whatever enters the brain at the moment. Welcome to the Left in 2011 -- they want stuff and they want it now.
