Three Little Pigs ad from The Guardian

Remind anyone of OWS and Occupy Our Homes, the Occupy group fighting against foreclosures? Maybe a little?

Even if it doesn’t remind you directly, it does speak to the prevalence of social media in OWS while employing some imagery of the protests (i.e. the protesters running into police lines.)

Good job Guardian. Well played.

Disorderly World, Disorderly Politics

A New Politics for a Disorderly World
by Carne Ross, former diplomat for the British foreign service

This is a great read of someone with political experience who agrees with the Occupy Wall Street movement. Ross praises the participatory democracy, the personal politics, and the better culture that he claims OWS promotes. If the world is disorderly, should its governments match it?
