Default Congrats occutards: YOU are the 1%!

At least partially.

The 1% richest of the American population consists of roughly 3 million persons. Of the EU it would be about 5 million persons. Of Australia it would be about 200 000 persons. Of Canada it would be about 350 000 persons. However, the global 1% consists of 70 million people. The places just mentioned are some of the richest in the world. OWS claims to speak for 99% of the inhabitants in these countries. But parts of the 99% in these countries are part of the global 1%. Therefore OWS represents part of the global 1%. And their slogan becomes aimed at themselves.
There are billions living in unbelievably tiny confines at factory farms. Anyone at OWS ever compared their well being to them? Didn't think so. Not a lot of critical thinking happening over there.

Not a lot of critical thinking right here in this very thread!

And yet our OP seems to think (:eyebrow2:) that he's the first to come up with this criticism :yawn:

Unlikely, since of course he stole it from someone else.

AynMises, stop plagiarizing or you will be banned. I get that your English isn't great and that you are more than glad to discard your strongly-held libertarian principles on property as soon as it's convenient to you. That's one of the things that makes lolbertarians so hilarious: how consistently hypocritical they are.

I really don't want to lose that, so please, learn to quote. All you have to do is put your regurgitated text in quotes and link to the original. Everyone will still debate it with you, don't worry. And of course nobody will think any less of you because everyone already knows you don't have an original thought in your brain.

LOL protesters. They don't even know which percent they are so they should stop yammering and go home.
