An OWS activist and his pregnant girl friend were arrested on bomb paraphernalia charges. The arrests have brought forth images of Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn, the friends and former neighbors of the Obamas. Both couples are from privileged backgrounds and have excellent educations. Of course, there is a difference, Ayers is an admitted communist with the proverbial lower case "c". The more recent wanna be terrorists, Morgan Gliedman, a Park Avenue child of wealth and privilege, who now has the distinction of giving birth to her daughter while incarcerated; and her boyfriend Aaron Greene, a graduate of Harvard who did his graduate work at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government are aligned with the Occupy Wall Street group, an anarchist type group embraced by leading Democrats.
The arrests occurred in a Greenwich apartment after police were sent to arrest Gliedmen for credit card theft. In the apartment, police found a modified twelve gauge shotgun, several high capacity rifle magazines, bomb making paraphernalia, a flare launcher (a commercial copy of the M79 grenade launcher) and notebooks on constructing booby traps and bombs, along with seven grams of an explosive HMDT. Greene has had five previous altercations with the police on diverse charges like assault and weapons violations.
Nancy Pelosi, leaves the public in a fog with one of her typical nonsensical quotes in support of OWS:
I support the message to the establishment, whether its Wall Street or the political establishment and the rest, that change has to happen. We cannot continue in a way this is not relevant to their lives.
President Obama sided with the OWS protestors after they interrupted a speech, with a more coherent, but still puzzling message:
So a lot of the folks who have been down in New York and all across the country, in the Occupy movement, there is a profound sense of frustration . . . about the fact that the essence of the American Dream which is if you work hard, if you stick to it, that you can make it feels like thats slipping away, and its not the way things are supposed to be. Not here. Not in America... (America is) a big, compassionate country where everybody who works hard should have a chance to get ahead not just the person who owns the factory, but the men and women who work on the factory floor.
Now that our president has openly encouraged the anarchists, his pandering to acquire support or co opt the movement may turn out to be disastrous, if more of these educated and pampered anarchists, who lack the cunning of real revolutionaries, continue to appear on arrest sheets or actually manage to detonate one of their bombs, between shopping sprees on Park Avenue.

I have embraced the philosophy of solipsism. I do not understand why it has not become more popular.
On the Dailymailuk site, it’s reported that both of them are heroin addicts. I hope it isn’t true for the baby’s sake.
You believe it because I do.
Lenin explained it. Naturally Communism is a people's movement, but someone has to be in charge of the movement - the cadre, the intellectuals, the technocrats, the ones who must lead the movement until Marx's promise that the State magically withers away comes to pass, which it never does. What does happen is the advent of a new ruling class. Milovan Djilas described this in The New Class. In Marxian terms, the inevitable progress of history appears actually to devolve, from feudalism to capitalism and back to feudalism again, where the ruling class is kept in place by the same knout and gun that kept the previous one in place prior to the Revolution.
0bama, Jarrett, Ayers, Dohrn, all of these people have no intention of becoming part of the masses. Nor have they. They have no intention of getting rid of the parasites in the incredibly feckless Emma Goldman's essay, they intend to replace them. And to a very great degree, they have done so, as any brief glance at 0bama's vacation schedule should make perfectly clear.
Anarchists, no. Cadre, yes. Ruling class, yes. But the beast they're riding is starting to stagger, and we'll be under it when it falls.
Well, you need to share your philosophy with others.
Ohhhh....well, never mind.
