They were very charming and appealing, and yes, much like 
Occupy, to all appearances. Youth is -- almost -- irresistible. 

It takes a bit more than that for me to consider somebody 'peeps' 
-- and, for that matter, would they consider me 'peeps'? It's a 
reciprocal relation, innit? 

But yeah, there are a lot of unrelated currents here there and 
everywhere. Putin is no angel, and a dim view of plutocracy is 
always something to encourage.

On the other hand, it's probably mistaken to imagine that German 
or American plutocrats would be preferable to home-brew.

A man should take care not to be made a proverb; and, therefore, should avoid having any one topick of which people can say, "We shall hear him upon it."
