Alexandra Pitcher I agree that costumes are not as powerful as issues, but media IS powerful. And the power of the Occupy movement is that it is leaderless, spawned from city to city and country to country. Spain's 15-M has been going on since May. And lately, it seems like leaders aren't doing much for us.
Alexandra Pitcher Good article, but I do not think that that it is responsible for the European Union to borrow from China just because it "no choices but to borrow from China." With China being the bearer of so much US debt, it certainly seems irresponsible for them to take more on.
Alexandra Pitcher As the cliche goes, it looks like it was too good to be true: http://english.aljazeera.net/news/europe/2011/10/20111031181537820315.html After all the effort of more stable, neighbor countries, such measures by the Greek government seem irresponsible and spiteful.
