"When it comes down to a crowd of people who haven't done anything really wrong versus the cops, I'm reflexively against the cops. That said, my idiosyncratic preferences are hardly a reliable guide to the nature of a decent liberal social order. So, as much as I might love commotions generally, and unauthorized camping specifically, at a certain point you've got to ask whether an ongoing commotion really continues to be healthy. The Occupy movement's commotion served a healthy purpose, but that's done. It's not so healthy anymore." (11/30/11)
