Focus is impossible

I am greatly disappointed with Grant McKenzie’s editorial. To complain that the Occupy Victoria movement lacks focus misses the point . . . The problems we face today are so numerous that it is completely impossible to bring them all into focus . . . . I believe that it takes true bravery to look your problems in the eye, without having any idea of how to solve them. This is the beauty of the Occupy movement. It is calling people to come together in the midst of hopelessness and powerlessness, and bravely give voice to their feelings of injustice and betrayal.
