“The blank template protest”

Christopher Taylor:

And that’s the problem. This is the blank template protest: people are writing what they want it to be about and believe it should be about from the outside, just like they did when they voted for Barack Obama. Most of the people at the movement don’t really know what this is about, and the ones who think they do conflict with each other. This is about getting Jews out of Israel, no its about redistributing wealth, no its about equality, no its about how evil banks are, no its about jobs, no… well you get the idea. There’s no coherent, focused idea here.
