When you have a bucket nearly full of crabs, they will sit in it. If one begins to crawl out over the rim to freedom, several will reach out, grab it, and pull it back in.
This is why #Occupy is being
ignored, maligned, and attacked. Those who are comfortable sitting at
the bottom of the bucket are uncomfortable with anyone rising above.
This is because they would then have to admit that the bucket is a trap
and that they should do something, anything, to change their
circumstance. And those in control who do not WISH for any change of
circumstance which would to them be detrimental. Reach reach, tug tug
tug. This also goes to corrupt Democrats who do not wish to be exposed.
It even goes to those who do good work, but feel the rug beneath their
feet, beginning to be pulled. This is why there is not a riot of Dems
screaming to support #Occupy: they fear many things, especially a change
in the (eco)system in which they thrive. Identify with #Occupy, and be
exposed a hypocrite. Dennis Kucinich places the Bill of Rights, the
Constitution, and Democracy itself ABOVE existing systems, AS IT SHOULD
Fuck the bucket.
