It’s been there since the very beginning of America: the struggle between ordinary people for economic democracy and the creditor class which fears and tamps down that democracy. In this hour, William Hogeland, author of two books: Declaration, and The Whiskey Rebellion, puts Occupy Wall Street in its proper historical context. He argues that the demonstrators are totally consistent with one branch of American tradition, while their target is also consistent with another traditional branch. He argues the same essential issues have remained unresolved since the founding period.
