Happy Anniversary to Occupy?
The one-year anniversary pieces on Occupy just getting underway (the date is actually Monday) and here is Joe Nocera's op-ed for tomorrow's NYT --a real slam. Yes, they accomplished a lot in raising income inequality in their first weeks, and gave us "the 99%"--but then, unlike the Tea Party (which now has 89 allies in Congress and runs one of the two major parties) willfully failed to engage power. So, Nocera points out, "talk is cheap."
is author of a dozen books (click on covers at right), including the new "THE TUNNELS: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill." He was the longtime editor of Editor & Publisher. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Twitter: @GregMitch
