Occupy Movement – What Does It Tell Us About America? - 04/01/12

 

Six months ago, the Occupy Movement started in New York’s Zuccotti
Park. Over time, the weather seemed to have chilled and dampened the
enthusiasm of its core supporters. Will the movement be able to
spring into spring with new vigor and better organization or will it
simply fizzle? What are the goals and beliefs of the Occupiers and
what does it tell us about America today? To discover the heart
and soul of the Occupy Movement, Bob invited Anthony Fisher, film
maker and Reason TV producer to join him in this episode to discuss his
extensive coverage of the movement. Let’s examine the Occupiers from
a Libertarian perspective. Are they just Tea Partiers with longer
hair and more student loans? How will they vote in the election this
fall, if at all? Bailouts, crony capitalism, taxing the rich; we
have it for you.
