I certainly hope that if Occupy Tokyo flourishes, that the Occupy Wall Street model is not chosen. It would be sad to see Tokyo’s lawless, unaccomplished, ill-mannered, overeducated yet ignorant and incompetent rule. I hope they will not degrade themselves by urinating and defecating in public, having sex in public, declining to wash or be hygienic, and leaving a mess for taxpayers.

Occupy Wall Street embarrasses all Americans who see its hatred, class warfare and trampling of individual rights as something that can never be respected. There must be a better model to emulate.
