The bulk of the Wall Street protestors deliver a garbled, incoherent message along the lines of “abolish capitalism”. Their ridiculousness is captured here. When asked what to replace capitalism with, they don’t know. The answer, of course, is something along the lines of socialism and communism. But most people, without having a working definition of these economic models, inherently know that they’re not desirable – so nobody wants to state the obvious alternative.
It’s refreshing to know, however, that there are some intelligent voices in this group. You can hear one such voice in the following video:
Unlike the hippie anti-capitalists his is a message of anti-corporatism, limited government, and sound money. Unfortunately, by trolling around with this riff-raff I fear he risks weakening the importance of the “End the Fed” message. Nevertheless, unlike the call for “economic equality”, it’s a sensible one.
If you want economic equality, look no further than North Korea: there is no upper, middle, or lower class. Everyone is poor.
