"Not only do they have to shit in a bucket, they have to bring it down the stairs themselves."
Nice metaphor with general application! However, it's referring to the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Coney Island, far from the very few Manhattan penthouses Mayor-for-Life Bloomberg gives two shits about.
I'd like, however, to lay down a marker:
From the Barcalounger:
There are well-known institutional pathologies and organizational behaviors that the humanitarian crisis model is subject to. Almost necessarily, the causes of whichever crisis are never addressed. I'm not sure that either model is the way for Occupy to head, although I should caveat that Occupy has been very, very smart and creative about institutional issues so far. That said, massive PR win and, like, actually helped people.
