regarding occupy dc

the strong, statist undercurrent of Occupy NY/DC and related movements confuse me. they are explicitly demanding the government for jobs…aka demanding the government enter private enterprise…aka desiring the government to have more power. this isn’t a protest of leftist “radicals”, this is just big government liberals trying to emulate the tea party, and seeking solidarity with the police of all people. they shouldn’t be seeking to occupy, they should be seeking to dismantle; the way to fight oppression, classism, and economic disparity is not by giving even more trust and authority to the state.
