A Difference of Opinion Regarding the Occupy Movement

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on November 15, 2011

Paul Krugman believes that the Occupy movement’s “greatest problem” is “the prospect that it would just fade away as time went on and the days grew colder.”

Funny, I happen to think that the Occupy movement’s greatest problem is all of the violence perpetrated by Occupiers, including an actual shooting, sexual assaults, and instances of rape. The outbursts of anti-Semitism (hat tip) are also somewhat problematic, to say the least.

Another concern, of course, is the tendency of the Occupy movement to foster economic ignorance (more on that issue here). Krugman can, if he wishes, hope and pray that all of this nonsense goes on for a while, but for those who don’t go all gooey-eyed over acts of lunacy, the cold days that might bring the Occupy movement to an end cannot come soon enough.
