Michael Moore: OWS is ‘beyond’ party politics, election of candidates
In an interview with Anderson Cooper, filmmaker Michael Moore said that the “Occupy Wall Street” movement isn’t lobbying Congress because our elected officials are the “employees of Wall Street” and that the famous lobbyist enclave “K-Street” is the “lobbying arm of Wall Street”.
Moore believes that traditional channels for affecting change in this country have been tried and have failed. “This movement is so beyond, ‘Hey let’s get this candidate elected.’ Those days are over… we’ve all participated… What did we get? Where are we? We’re in the worst shape we have been in this country that I have seen in my lifetime.”
