Adam Vs. The Man on the occupy DC crowd

It should be a good sign when people are upset enough at the current state of things that they are willing to take to the street, but I am having a mighty difficult time getting behind this "Occupy" movement and it is representatives like this that are the reason. If you think the corporations exert too much influence on the government and since the government has a monopoly on violence this leads to bad results because then the corporations also exert a monopoly on violence by using the government, these corporation use that power the government has against their would be competitors, they use it to get favors and tax money, etc., the solution is not to grow the government so the corporations can by proxy have even more power. The solution is to reduce or eliminate the power the government has so the corporations have nothing to gain by bribing politicians.
