As the City of Toronto and others are going to court to evict the Occupy Movement from the public parks I don’t know why the protesters even want to continue.
What’s the point? What are their conditions to leave the parks? What is it exactly that they are trying to accomplish?
My “left wing” ways are well known here at The Citizen, and at first I applauded their efforts. In some ways it reminded me of the “Hippie Movement” of the 60’s.
I thought “Hey, these Occupy People have a point.” Awareness is the first step towards change.
They have brought awareness to the disparity in wealth in the world, they have proved their point. Without a clear mandate I’m not sure what else they have to prove.
As much as I admire Marx and Engels on paper, we have seen that communism doesn’t work in practice.
It’s time to go home.
