Max Brantley with the Arkansas Times reports on the efforts currently under way to organize an "Occupy Arkansas" protest. He posts a video of their first meeting where it appears they have not yet figured out exactly what they want to protest.
"I am Adam and I am here because I have no idea what is going on and I want to understand why people are occupying Wall Street and other streets," commented one of the participants.
I noticed one of the organizers in the video is the former Green Party nominee for Governor, Jim Lendall.
"Basically we are living under the wrong Golden Rule," says Lendall on the video. "They believe that the Golden Rule is who has the gold rules. That’s not the Golden Rule. We want to get the right Golden Rule out there."
You may recall Lendall for making news back in April when he stood on the steps of the state capitol at a "Make Them Pay Rally" and called for erecting guillotines.
“The French, inspired by our American Revolution, knew how to deal with the wealthy arrogant aristocrats. The French people built guillotines. Maybe we can park a guillotine in front of every chamber of commerce, corporate headquarters, bank, investment house, and Republican Party headquarters to remind them that democracy is about people not profits. We need to tell them in one clear voice, ‘no more greed,’” said Lendall.
No word yet if the Occupy Arkansas group will call for building guillotines as well.
