The Occupy movement is also a different kind of protest because of the strange way it encompasses both the radical and the eminently reasonable. Or really, how it shows that the reasonable has become radical.

The radical-looking people in the photo—the dirty-hippy types and the scary black-masked folks—most of them weren’t screaming for the downfall of the State or the overthrow of capitalism. They were shouting things like “fund healthcare and education” and “reduce the deficit.” I live in a country where people are putting on masks and writing a defense attorney’s phone number on their arm so they can say things like “rich people should pay more taxes.”
