Glen Greenwald on OWS

One of the most insightful progressive voices weighs in with an optimistic take:

“Anyone who expressed difficulty seeing or understanding what motivates these protests revealed many things about themselves. None is flattering. The only thing that’s surprising is that these protests didn’t happen sooner and that they’re not more widespread and intense. I think it’s become increasingly clear that that is likely to change, and soon. Like the Arab Spring, the rapid growth of these protests should be a permanent antidote against defeatism. It’s unclear what these protests will accomplish — that still depends on how many people join them and what they cause it to be — but, already, they prove that the possibility always exists for subverting even the most seemingly invulnerable power factions.”

    Glen wrote last week that the Democratic Party, with its close ties to the plutocrats that created this mess, is kidding themselves if they think they can co-opt the OWS movement.
