I think peoples' mistake in criticizing the Tea Party was in thinking they were somehow cheering on crony capitalists.
I think peoples' mistake in criticizing OWS is in acting like OWS is against capitalism.
I think the mistake of both the Tea Party and OWS is in acting antagonistically to the rest of the population - as if nobody outside the movement wants a free society or as if nobody outside the movement is frustrated with Wall Street. And I think both movements are lacking in concrete ideas.
