Quotation of the Day for November 16, 2011

From the men of property the orders came
They sent the hired men and troopers to wipe out the Diggers' claim
Tear down their cottages, destroy their corn
They were dispersed - only the vision lingers on

Ye poor take courage, ye rich take care
This earth was made a common treasury for everyone to share
All things in common, all people one
They came in peace - the order came to cut them down

- Leon Rosselson, from his song The World Turned Upside Down, about the Occupy St. George's Hill movement.
