How so? Most of them seem to want bigger government, wealth redistribution (ie the Robin Hood Tax), free healthcare, and more regulation.

You realize the "ism" in the cartoon refers to Communism/Socialism, right?

The only thing not socialistic is their healthy mistrust of the Federal Reserve.

Capital-ISM is just the same. As long as there is a 'system', you are getting screwed. And when the occupy movement started, there were some of them that just said "I don't don't have any demands, I'm just sitting here in my tent to stop taking part of the current system".

Of course, there are uneducated people that think socialism or communism is the right way, but there are also a lot of uneducated people that think (current) capitalism is the right way...

Sad that you can so completely miss the point of a simple cartoon.

But luckily I have you to explain it with strong arguments.
