Emails between the “Occupy Wall Street” protest organizers reveal that their excited about the idea of making money off their “anti-capitalism” movement. Harrison Shultz, one of the head protesters excitedly noted that one of the protest’s YouTube clips had “Blown Up” and Google had invited him to monetize the clip by attaching ads to it. He also wants to “commodify” the OWS website by selling ad space to corporations. He called his plan “a Corporate Funded Revolution” and said it was so revolutionary, it’s almost an oxymoron.
- I thought “commodify” meant they were going to bring in more Port-a-Potty’s for the protestors.
- Somebody should write a book about this guy’s idea… no wait, somebody already did… it was called “Animal Farm”.
