Of course, Lila has no knowledge of who's in the Occupation Movement. (I retract this statement if Lila is actually a highly-trained sociologist and this is an excerpt from her forthcoming peer-reviewed article on "bumming around in modern society.") On the other hand, I have pretty good empirical evidence about people who sound just like Lila. I've been involuntarily paying a large portion of my income as taxes for more than 40 years and the ill-informed, unrighteously indignant Lilas of this world make sure that most of it goes to paying for insane, unjust wars and subsidizing a leisure class that lives off the labor of the vast majority of working people.
