The Infighting at Occupy Wall Street

The New Yorker has an interesting article on the poopalooza known as Occupy Wall Street.  It seems all is not well in liberal LA LA land.  Of course none of this comes as any surprise to anyone that is a rational human being.  

One of the many problems they seem to be having is taking directions on keeping order.  
“Someone has to be told what to do, someone needs to give orders. There’s no sense of order in this fucking place.”
The drums also seem to be a problem.  
 “And we’ve had issues with the drummers too. They drum incessantly all day, and really loud.”
 Gee, ya think that would get annoying after a while?  But the drummers don't seem to think so:
“They’re imposing a structure on the natural flow of music," said Seth Harper, an 18-year-old from Georgia. “The GA decided to do it ... they suppressed people’s opinions. I wanted to do introduce a different proposal, but a big black organizer chick with an Afro said I couldn’t.
But it seems the biggest issue is really about money. The head drummer feels that main group taking the tips that the drummers are making is not quite "fair"
“Now they have over $500,000 from all sorts of places, we’re like, what’s going on here? They’re like the banks we’re protesting."
You also can't forget the "free" stuff they are getting either.  
Another argument broke out next to the pile of appropriated belongings, growing taller by the minute. A man named Sage Roberts desperately rifled through the pile, looking for a sleeping bag. “They’ve taken my stuff,” he muttered. Lauren Digion, the sanitation group leader, broke in: “This isn’t your stuff. You got all this stuff from comfort [the working group]. It belongs to comfort.”
It seems that they are getting a taste of what it like when something is given to you for free.  They can take it away just as easily as they gave it to you.  

Maybe, just maybe, some of these "protesters" will learn the lesson nothing in this life is ever really free and there are laws for a reason.  Collectivism means that nothing truly belongs to you.  You are no more than just a cog in a wheel that can easily be replaced.
