Occupy Movement – What Does It Tell Us About America?

Guest: Anthony Fisher


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, filmmaker 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.
