Spectacle as Revolution

Back in October, Michel Chossudovsky asked the question about #Occupy: Is it a colored revolution? As we approach the one-year anniversary on September 17, I think the answer to that question is, not yet.

If CIA operations around the world are anything to gauge by, though, we should expect a co-opting of the #Occupy sentiments by the dirty tricks squad somewhere in the basement of the National Security Agency. Maybe surfacing in the form of Soros Open Society fellowship recipients emerging as #Occupy leaders counseling moderation in contrast to FBI agent provocateurs.

How the spectacle ultimately plays out is anybody's guess.
