Francis Fox Piven was interviewed recently at the sit in protest on Wall Street. A university professor, is not only proud of the people who are protesting, but actually went as far as saying that she hopes and feels the need for an uprising in America. A year or so ago, she was amazed that someone like Glenn Beck would be spreading all those vicious lies about her, and her calls for uprising and violence. She was just an innocent professor, who wrote something a long time ago, but had no relevance now….what a sham. She loves what is going on right now, and hopes for more. Its as if she can almost taste the change that she has so long imagined. The downfall of our government, to be morphed into a new and better world of socialism and social justice.
These people are tapping into the anger and frustration of the general public now. It is no longer the fringe. There are some angry desperate people out there, and people like Francis Fox Piven, Van Jones, Stephen Lerner are lighting the fire under that anger. The uprising will come, and the change they want, will be far less than what they expect. God help us when that change comes, it will be ugly for all, and who knows what the outcome will be.
