As an authentic anarchist, I don't even follow my on rules. One more for the old fart: Joe Bageant (may he rest in peace), America's Redneck Prophet, author of Deer Hunting with Jesus: Dispatches from America's Class War, Rainbow Pie: A Redneck Memoir, and the posthumous Waltzing at the Doomsday Ball, addresses in this essay (one of his last) a number of issues that, I believe, are insufficiently acknowledged in today's "progressive" culture -…Continue

This was posted on Occupy Portland's Facebook page earlier today. Marianne Williamson does an unbelievable job of laying out what I feel is the moral imperative behind Occupy, what's at stake, and what it means to truly follow the principles of nonviolent resistance...and so much more.
