Temple Fans Are Like #OccupyWallStreet Protesters

What do Occupy Wall Street protesters and Pennsylvania Government Waste (Temple) fans have in common? A lot actually.

Both groups are disgruntled with those who are more fortunate, and want to stick it to the man by whining about it. Instead of inciting actual change through means of cooperation, they decide that they want to try to manufacture a revolution with no realistic demands and just a lot of whining about how they've been fucked by the system. What they don't realize is that the best way to incite real change is to elect Barack Obama have a reasoned debate without insulting the sensibilities of the groups that could help you.

If Temple fans realized that Villanova is simply trying to protect its future, I think they would be much more receptive to Villanova's motives. One issue remains: I don't know if you can expect Temple fans or Occupy Wall Street protesters to be reasonable.
