"And the live show is still our main thing": HAPPY BIRTHDAY, OCCUPY!

OWS One Year Later, Time World
On Sept. 17, 2011, members of Occupy Wall Street (OWS) started camping out in Zuccotti Park in Manhattan’s financial district, and since then the movement has spread to 1,500 cities. One of its most enduring icons has been the Guy Fawkes mask, popularized by the graphic novel and film V for Vendetta and a constant presence at protests worldwide.

If we had any nerve at all, if we had any real balls as a society, or whatever you need, whatever quality you need, real character, we would make an effort to really address the wrongs in this society, righteously.

I read somewhere that 77 per cent of all the mentally ill live in poverty. Actually, I'm more intrigued by the 23 per cent who are apparently doing quite well for themselves.

Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.

Stuff that's hidden and murky and ambiguous is scary because you don't know what it does.

And the live show is still our main thing.
