Of course, the Occupy ... movement is primarily an American business and as such I felt tongue-tied on the subject for quite some time, not feeling that it's my business to opine on. However, since receiving an e-mail with the link to Gateway Pundit's post #Occupy Midwest Vandals Deface Historic St. Louis Landmarks & Leave Threats – “Only Blood of Rich Will Stop Occupy”, I have decided to say a few words. You see, I spent three quite enjoyable years working in St. Louis and consider self having kind of a vested interest in the place, not to mention in some wonderful people I worked with.
Of course, the following picture causes some distress to a person who has some personal memories from a birthplace of world communism (in addition to St. Louis, but this is part of my published bio):
Anyway, look at that post I linked above: there are more pictures of that genre, unfortunately. The tendency of the kind of people who, as far as I understand, left their signatures in St. Louse, to vandalize instead of creating, is of course not any kind of revelation. In this regard hardly anyone said it better than one of the greatest Russian writers, Mikhail Bulgakov, in The Heart of a Dog:
I wish the OWS (and everyone else) would read this book - not that I have a hope that OWS will. And, since lavatories were mentioned in the above quote, I cannot avoid mentioning another "revolutionary" act of the OWS, this time in NYC. Skip the clip and read the text following it if you are too squeamish.A dull mutter of voices in chorus, muffled by the ceiling and carpets, was heard coming from above and to one side.
Philip Philipovich rang for Zina. 'Zina my dear, what's that noise?''They're [the Bolshevik cell of the apartment house where the scene takes place] having another general meeting, Philip Philipovich,' replied Zina.
'What, again?' exclaimed Philip Philipovich mournfully. 'Well, this is the end of this house. I'll have to go away -but where to? I can see exactly what'll happen. First of all there'll be community singing in the evening, then the pipes will freeze in the lavatories, then the central heating boiler will blow up and so on. This is the end.'
Police said Occupy Wall Street protesters were captured on surveillance video dragging a large receptacle of human urine and feces to an open-air plaza at the corner of Nassau and Cedar streets last Wednesday evening, just before 8 p.m.My understanding is that OWS movement consists of all kinds of people. Some of them, I guess, have some justified grudges to nurse. Many of them, however, confirm that Freud's conclusion about the link between money and "human waste" (excrement, to avoid gratuitous use of euphemisms).
They then poured the waste down a set of stairs there, police said.
About 20 minutes later, one of the protesters entered a Chase ATM vestibule on Water Street and poured human waste inside there, police said.
Since money is not to be blamed for their behavior, these folks are simply full of shit.
