I’ve often referred to the Occupy crowd as a bunch of stinky hippies. Not really ’cause I think that they are hippies or even stink; mostly because I’m a hippie of sorts and I enjoy poking fun at myself. But I do think the movement is largely made up of folks who find themselves in a condition that is largely of their own doing. And then they’re mad at that condition.
I stumbled across this video from Seattle where a gaggle of the gentle Occupy movement took over a house that was under renovation and made it their own. And by “made it their own” I mean they destroyed it. To the point that the city began to cite the real owner and he had to call in the SWAT team to remove them.
These people and this movement are not serious. They are not concerned about making positive change in society or creating opportunities that would better allow decent hardworking people to better themselves. Rather, these people are interested in forwarding an agenda that allows them to live off the labor of others while they recline in ease and contemplate life.
