    I was 18 in'68 and a hippie, I'm not speaking in abstracts. We had something of great value and we, ourselves, lost that power.

    I know that I don't have to tell you what ultimately happened or argue over whether we did good or not. My complaint with Occupy is that they refused to learn anything from history. It was a blank slate for them.

    I know I'm generalizing because I wasn't all over at every Occupy, but as I said above the incident with John Lewis was the best example I can give that they had no idea that many people had walked the path they were on and they could if they wanted, learn from them.
