#OccupyWallStreet has cracked open a little hole in history, creating a moment where some of the very core institutions of our economy are called into question.

The unpalatable fact is that we, the ardent left, count for less and less in the public's thinking about how to live together... You become creditable when others take you seriously even though they may not agree with you. To be taken seriously, you need to know when to keep silent and how to listen well; you are then extending respect and recognition to others.
