#OCCUPYFAIL: Margaret Wente: The Occupiers Are Blaming The Wrong People. “It’s not the greedy Wall Street bankers who destroyed these people’s hopes. It’s the virtueocracy itself. It’s the people who constructed a benefit-heavy entitlement system whose costs can no longer be sustained. It’s the politicians and union leaders who made reckless pension promises that are now bankrupting cities and states. It’s the socially progressive policy-makers in the U.S. who declared that everyone, even those with no visible means of support, should be able to own a home with no money down, courtesy of their government. . . . The Occupiers are right when they say our system of wealth redistribution is broken. But they’re wrong about what broke it.”
