Chronology of events Pre-Occupy Wall Street The democratic clock turned back Financial markets rallied last week when the Greek prime minister, George Papandreou, announced he was dropping plans for a referendum on the terms of his country's bailout. Bond dealers liked the idea that the government in Athens could soon be headed by Lucas Papademos, a former vice-president of the European Central Bank. Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy think Papademos is the sort of hard-line technocrat with whom they can do business. Silvio Berlusconi's long-predicted departure as Italy's prime minister will no doubt be greeted in the same way, particularly if he is replaced by a government of national unity headed by another technocrat, Mario Monti. A former Brussels commissioner, he is seen as someone who could be relied upon to push through the European Union's austerity programme during the next 12 months, watched over by Christine Lagarde's team of officials from the International Monetary Fund. From the perspective of the financial markets, this makes perfect sense.

Net Neutrality Is Under Attack ... Again Al Franken writes: "I've said that net neutrality is the most important free speech issue of our time. It's true. If Republicans have their way, large corporations won't just have the loudest voices in the room. They'll be able to effectively silence everyone else.
We All Occupy Occupying is behaving as if you live in the better world we all dream of: where basic needs are met for all, where greed is unacceptable, and where people consider others when they make decisions. To be honest, being kinder and more helpful is everything. Imagine if all of the people who work for banks and corporations had been kinder and more helpful. How about the politicians? Globally, we would not be in the situation we are in today.
