But then I was forwarded a picture (which originally appeared at pjmedia.com). The picture really does sum up the entire movement:
This image is incredibly powerful. Look at it again. Read it again.
I'm starting to think we really are screwed. Throughout the OWS movement, I've been heartened by messages I've received, from people of all ages, who dismiss these protesters as a very loud, entitled minority with a pervasive victim mentality, out there shouting and trying to out-do each others' pithy signs, while the rest of us fulfill our responsibilities by working hard and being accountable for our own success or failure. But looking at this picture makes me nervous.
Anyway, there you have it. Happy belated Thanksgiving. Drop me a comment below; tell me how you feel about this image...
