Blocking a street doesn't make you smart

Occupy Atlanta took to the streets of Atlanta yesterday, and for a brief time blocked a portion of Courtland Avenue at Georgia State University. According to a video report by WSB TV, the Occupy protesters "were protesting policies by GSU, the state, the government and corporations that left students broke without jobs and with sky high student loans."

Apparently Occupy overlooked students' individual responsibilities in its assessment of blame. There's nothing compulsory about higher education. Blocking a street won't erase protesters past bad choices, it only shows how little some of them learned while overspending for an education.
