Danny Schechter "News Dissector": Is Occupy's 'Purity' Under Assault? @ Consortium News

 Danton, detached, relaxed, was still visibly the great hero of the Revolution. He had told Frenchmen "Il faut de l'audace, encore de l'audace, toujours de l'audace" (You must dare, dare, and dare again). 
But on 5 April 1794, he and his friends "perished, the latest and last defenders of humanity and moderation; thelast men to wish for peace between the victors of the Revolution and to show pity for those they hadconquered

A Reminder.

Hardliners in the Occupy movement have begun equating police infiltrators and other enemies with Occupy supporters who favor some practical electoral and legislative goals. There is alarmist talk about the need to protect Occupy’s revolutionary purity from these reformers, as Danny Schechter explains.
