Why 240P?  By the way:  To make a word ending in "O" plural, one adds "ES," so "hero" becomes "heroes."

Occupy Wall Street is impotent

At least, that's what I believed for a time before I found out that OWS never really went away; they just moved from one phase of campaigning to the other.

The first phase (in 2011) consisted of highly visible moves like occupying Zuccotti Park and raising huge public awareness about the Occupy movement. That succeeded to some extent until the occupiers dispersed and were no longer scene on the streets.

That's where I thought OWS was over and I was wrong.

In this next phase, the OWS guys have become less publicly visible and have been more pro-active with formulating policies. So, we have things like OWS sympathizers using $400,000 to buy $14.7 million of personal debt up and then promptly forgiving the creditors. We've got working groups thinking up, and engaging with regulators, ways to regulate the financial services industry.*

This is arguably more significant even if it is less sexy (in terms of optics).

* For an example of what I mean, check http://www.motherjones.com/mojo/2012/02/occupy-sec-letter-volcker-rule. OWS activists send an extremely detailed 325 page comment letter on the Volcker Rule.
Rolling Jubilee spent $400,000 to purchase debt cheaply from banks before 'abolishing' it, freeing individuals from their bills

I didn't watch the video either.  So I shouldn't "rush to the assumption" that the result would be a mule; anyway, I didn't have time to go all the way to the birth.

Loving all people for who they are, just as they are, without trying to "fix" them, ought to be standard operating procedure.  I don't know if this is genius, but it sure is brilliant.  Thanks for the share, +Lisa Miller

We've listened - and here's how we're using technology to fight the depraved and illegal trade in child sex abuse imagery. My Op-Ed in the Daily Mail:

While society will never wholly eliminate such depravity, we should do everything in our power to protect children from harm, writes Google's executive chairman Eric Schmidt (pictured).

I guess we need a Constitutional Amendment assuring our right to privacy.
