#Matt Taibi

Occupy Wall Street was always about something much bigger than a movement against big banks and modern finance. It’s about providing a forum for people to show how tired they are not just of Wall Street, but everything. This is a visceral, impassioned, deep-seated rejection of the entire direction of our society, a refusal to take even one more step forward into the shallow commercial abyss of phoniness, short-term calculation, withered idealism and intellectual bankruptcy that American mass society has become.

One of the best political and current event writers going (well, as far as I’m concerned, he’s the best, but there’s a chance I’m wrong), Matt Taibi chimes in on Occupy Wall Street. He’s also the main reason for still paying attention to Rolling Stone. The quote was pulled from a great Matt Taibi article, but I first found out about it in the also great (and extensive) write-up on Occupy Wall Street that Ian MacKenzie posted, which you should check out.
