#2 Quiet please, quiet! Raise you hands if your clueless middle or upper class parents funded your Columbia or Harvard University education.

You'll never know but you can make a pretty good guess.

#5 "We're offering you the chance to repent for your sins."
Sounds like the cirriculum of the 're-integration' class that Winston Smith and his friend Julia were forced to take in Room 101.

#6 Attendees at general assemblies had long and circuitous talks about allocating money, not about "what they wanted in the world, or how they were going to change it," said Nicole Carty, 24, a Brown University graduate who helped run meetings.
Hornbein said that online forums became venomous as "systems broke down." A separate oversight body, the Spokes Council, also dissolved, he and other participants said.
That means there's no nucleus to a movement that had already rejected leaders, a central website, unified fundraising drives, administrative headquarters or a national advertising initiative. A working group that tried to come up with a list of essential demands wasn't able to, organizers said.
Yes, they sound like quite a threat...
