Occupy Wall Street Zen, Wash, DC, Thanksgiving Day

Present, protest and mindfulness.

Slavoj Žižek spoke to the New York Occupiers at Zuccotti Park on October 9:

They tell you we are dreamers. The true dreamers are those who think things can go on

indefinitely the way they are. We are not dreamers. We are awakening from a dream

which is turning into a nightmare. We are not destroying anything. We are only

witnessing how the system is destroying itself. We all know the classic scenes from

cartoons. The cat reaches a precipice. But it goes on walking. Ignoring the fact that

there is nothing beneath. Only when it looks down and notices it, it falls down. This is

what we are doing here. We are telling the guys there on Wall Street – Hey, look down!
