Stop Occupying Wall Street, and Start Doing The Real Work


Some Occupy Wall Street debate fodder for your Thanksgiving dinner, courtesy of yours truly:
As Marshall McLuhan famously stated, the medium is the message. With so much of the news media driven by television and the internet, OWS protesters should ask themselves which image they honestly believe that journalists, politicians, and the general public are more likely to have the credible message to rally behind: The image of a mass of black hoodies, Guy Fawkes masks, and banners with vague, handwritten slogans? Or the image of a business suit-wearing representative of a political organization with an "official"-sounding name and digestible sound bites?
If you're American, be thankful today that you live in a society where you can debate nearly anything you want.
