I, too, agreed with him. I've been watching the protests from around the world & thinking about what they could represent. I felt he put it quite well.

In listening to others talk about it, it amazes me that so many who oppose this are accusing the Occupy crowd of 'hating' capitalism, when that isn't the case. They just want to see the corruption that extreme capitalism brings about to be dealt with.

So far, things have remained fairly peaceful here in Seattle. The local gov't & the protestors are working to keep it that way & I'm grateful for that.

I agree with Sullivan, particularly this bit:
