There is probably no deadlier combination of character traits than resentment mixed with ignorance -- and that's exactly what we see in the OWS protesters, at least those interviewd on TV and in the press. Not only are these people seething with indignation, umbrage, and dudgeon; they are also unfathomably ignorant of the most basic facts about history, economics, and the simple workings of the world around them. Alinsky, on the other hand, also seethed with resentment -- but he was far from ignorant. Mix a guy like Alinsky (or a Soros)-- a hater with brains -- and a mass like the OWS gang -- haters without brains -- and you get a veritable witches brew. This is one movement that isn't going away soon. Whether you call these people anarchists (as I do) or socialists or nihilists, they're lethal -- and we have reason to be worried.
