I found this video to be very amusing. I like how the old timer talks about Bloomberg’s strange position and how he doesn’t want to come off like Mubarak. When in reality he does come off like a Middle Eastern leader. In a previous video he talks about how protesters can protest as long as they don t break the laws. To me that comes off as saying “do things my way or keep your mouth shut”. Protesters should be able to say what they want to say without getting beaten up. I think the woman who says “the only way that people like us with no power and no money can at least try to change things is through social pressure” has a point. In a weird way it’s pretty much asking how is someone who is backed against a wall supposed to defend themselves. She also goes on to talk about people who are comfortable in their houses with food don’t make the effort to demand their rights. I found this interesting because those people might be afraid to lose that comfort when it’s all they have. Some people are just not willing to risk it. In a weird way I feel like that’s the police. One of the protester’s sign read “hey NYPD the bankers are stealing from you too”, it’s against the law for police officers to protest and if they do they lose their jobs and any type of security they have for their families. I’m sure the police know that their also being taking advantage of and that could be part of the reason they have a reputation of being corrupt.
