I have to say that this gave me quite a lot to think about. I think that there definitely is something of old-fashioned conservatism inherent in this movement, particularly if one considers conservatism in terms of reining in excess.

Anyway, interesting reading:

That was a good read. Informed and insightful No wonder no one has commented.

In a sense the protest grievances are things that should appeal to old -school classical conservative. But there are few if any of those left today.

I thought so too

Yeah, it doesn't surprise me that no one (else) has commented; it was much too objective for most of this crowd

A lot of sense in that read. And good points. But with everything, the radical idiots screw up, what they started to do in the first place. There are people there i believe for the right reasons, but many are there also for the wrong. I do not believe in violence while trying to make a statement. Do not think the peaceful protestors should be bothered by the police either.



Had to click, read the name Pasquale, and that was my Dad's name, of course i had to read. To my Pasquale pass away for some time now, i love u.

That's why I'm behind it.
