You might have also noted, Hamlet, that SL has its own event in solidarity with OWS -- and it's been ongoing for quite some time, rather than merely being a one-time event.

There's even a Facebook page for it:

Oh great, a virtual protest for the apathetic to support a protest about nothing. This is really getting to be beyond dumb.

"Angry at Wall Street"... Yeah, nothing spells RAGE like SL avatars w00ting in ascii with audio from helium-addled 8-year olds. Get real.

An entire generation that actually, physically, has its head buried up its rear end. Astounding.

As long as ppl will protest, governments and the lobbies behind them, will see internet more and more as a menace to their power and will try to control it any way. facebook, Google plus, and so much more means to do so, will reveal their ultimate purpose then!
But the truth is that the systems is dying, slowly decaying, like the 2nd fall of Rome, and no real leaders that can make a difference.
Marx once said, capitalism will kill itselt!

I'm impressed by the people who have skin in the game, especially with some of the fine Pigs of the NYPD getting increasingly out of control.

But if virtual supporters help get the message across, more power to them.

This is a country of the people, for the people and by the people... not the corporations, not the politicians, not the self-proclaimed reelmerkans.

If the powers that be need to be forcibly reminded of that every half century or so, we stand ready to remind them.
