The Occupy movement has not been entirely useless. By my reckoning, itt has served one good purpose. It has demonstrated the permeable border between the left, represented by the Democratic Party and its media adjunct, and the sick left, represented by the Occupiers.
The sickness has been manifested in a variety of phenomena in the Occupations, perhaps most notably the Occupy crime wave. We have done our best to keep up with it, but it has proved to be an incredibly difficult task. Verum Serum has produced a November 16 compilation that is something of a tour de force: “Just like the Tea Party: A list of Occupy mayhem sorted by type.” It’s not complete, and it’s already a little out of date, but it’s an impressive list.
