While the entire “Occupy” movement has thankfully disappeared from the public’s eyes (and the hoods of Police cars), small remnants of politically ignorant freedom-hating fools remain. To secure their own power and position as Lords of the Flies, these groups have formed within their little soviets a ruling elite, known as a Spokes council. These counsels are controlled from within and have the power to expel from the horizontal non-hierarchical Occupy collectives anyone who “makes trouble” by opposing the collective will.
It is easy to reach a consensus when you’ve purged away any and all dissent.
It seems that the Occupy Las Vegas group’s Spokes council was going to have a glorious meeting of the vanguard of their Anarcho-Syndicalist utopia. So, I decided to drop by and see the overwhelming forces that would liberate us from our freedom and stuff.
This is the glorious scene, comrade, that I beheld that day.
