The Bolshevik Occupation of Wall Street

I put together this connection today.

The Occupy protesters are The 99%, the Majority; the Russian word for majority is большинство, which is the source of the term Bolshevik.

Q.E.D. Comrades.

    The term Bolshevik merely means majority and the term Menshevik means minority. It’s not a “source” for the term – it IS the term; and these were the terms used during the Russian revolution to refer the two opposing factions of the revolutionary party – one of which was larger and more popular than the other. Majority in and of itself does not have a connection with Trotskyism. The term “Majority” (“Bolshevik”) later came to be a sort of nickname for the movement within the movement. Bolshevik doesn’t inherently mean Trotskyite any more than “Republican” means Trotskyite – which, to follow your logic, would be true because the Republican party currently holds the majority in congress.

    Well done for at least *trying* to be clever, though!
