OWS Was Not the West's Tahrir Moment
Margaret Wente, Globe and Mail
We can all agree that corporate greed has run amok, that the leadership classes of Washington, Wall Street and the euro zone have let us down, that lots of vulnerable people (which most of the protesters are not, I should note) are getting screwed. But comparisons between these protests and the ones in Tahrir Square strike me as perverse.
