    Oh, they dare. They really, really do.

    iF "How dare you" is all we've got Then we are well and truly screwed until we learn that rhetorical outrage doesn't do shit.

    The solution is to show our opposition with our feet. But oh right, I remember--marches don't work. As if anything else works. Oh wait--yes, there is something that we've done, that worked.

    Occupy changed the national conversation more than writing sternly worded letters and diaries BECAUSE ITS MESSAGE WAS IN ITS PHYSICAL PRESCENCE, WHICH CAUSED DISRUPTION.

    I am not angry at you, OP--I am just tired of the "how dare you" approach. IT DOES NOT WORK. IT MAKES EVERYONE FEEL BETTER FOR A SECOND, BUT IT CHANGES NOTHING.
