Leonard Cohen Has New Meaning: First We Take Manhattan ....or Occupy Wall Street

A bard captures the spirit of his time. This song was written in the 1980s (the first time I heard it was in 1987 when driving across Sasketchewan) but ilt seems even more fitting today, given the movement to occupy the centers of power, and the struggle for Europe to find solutions to its problems.

Then we take Berlin!

Or rather, Frankfurt, seat of the European Central Bank.

However, the movement did not start with Occupy Wall Street, a local take on the Indignés/Indignados/Outrage movement, taking its name from Stéphane Hessel's pamphlet.
