Michael Moore at #OccupyWallStreet

The crowd's repetition of what he says is not some sort of strange ritual -- it's an ingenious way of adapting to the no-amplified-sound-in-the-park law. When a speaker addresses the group in the park, they use the "people's mic" so that the hundreds around them who are outside of earshot can hear what the speaker is saying, as well. There are only 400 of them - the richest, greediest, pathologically hoarding, kleptomaniacs - and 250 MILLION or more of us. You don't have to be into sports to know the outcome of that game. They think their power is in their bank accounts, but we know our power is in the people.
