I’m willing to bet, based on other answers given in a poll by New York Magazine, and based on the obvious bohemian-proletarian vibe of the protests, that most of the Occupy Wall Street people fancy themselves champions of a clean environment. And yet look at the disgusting way they are treating downtown New York, which is once again beginning to take on the distinct Third Worldish flavor it had during the Ed Koch and David Dinkins administrations. Where are the squeegee men when you need them?
These pictures are, to me, further proof that socialism could never work. Much as millions of die-hard Marxists could not make Soviet Communism work, so thousands of “green” morons can barely even pick up their own trash without having a capitalist do it for them.
