Stirrings of Competitive Governance Among the Occupy Wall Street Crowd?
At around 3:45 on the Colbert:
Carne Ross: I’m part of group that’s trying to set up an Occupy Bank that would actually replace the current banking system. Because I believe, and other group members believe—who include wall street people and dissidents from the system—that you can’t actually reform the current system; you can’t look to Washington, plausibly, to reform the current system, therefore you’ve got to set up an alternative system that would be better. That’s the theory of change we have in our group.
Colbert: Okay, how many people in this group?
Ross: It’s quite small.
Not as small as you think mon semblable, mon frere! Carne, a former diplomat, is the author of The Leaderless Revolution.
