OK, my resolve is weakening. After watching a few dozen OWS youtube videos over the last few weeks, I am slowly beginning to see what Hal was saying last week, some of these whacky malcontents are beginning to grow on me. Sure, most still deserve a swift kick in the ass, some are whinny lazy spoiled brats who need lessons on the evils of coveting your neighbor’s stuff, and almost all could use a bath. Still, when I see videos like this, I’m thinking ,”Group hugs all around”.
For the comedic relief value alone I’m startling to warm up to the movement.
That one lady who wanted to start up a business but when asked what is stopping her, she had to stare reality square in the face ,”My own lack of motivation”, a teaching moment for sure.
Added to the list I gave before (sex, drugs, food) is this, reciting catchy phrases in unison. It’s not quite as cool as karaoke, that takes some reading skills, group reciting is easy because if you forget the phrase that was just given to you 2 seconds ago, you can just go silent and draft off the backs of everyone else.
Here is hoping for a late winter.
