Strength of an Idea

The Frugal Hostess does not pretend to be a journalist, and she is in no way objective.

Around 1:00am on Monday, November 15, the City of New York began clearing Liberty Square to dismantle the Occupation of Wall Street. 

Clearing the park under cover of darkness and arresting six or seven credentialed journalists, along with up to 200 peaceful protestors, was a brilliant way to re-energize this movement.  (And trashing the belongings of all of those people and carting it away to the dump was a great idea for reinforcing the idea that private property is sacrosanct.)

“No army can withstand the strength of an idea whose time has come.” - Victor Hugo
