A 38-year-old protestor at Occupy Toronto said:
“It’s weird protesting on Bay Street [Toronto’s financial district]. You get there at 9 a.m. and the rich bankers who [sic] you want to hurl insults at and change their worldview have been at work for two hours already. And then when it’s time to go, they’re still there. I guess that’s why they call them the one per cent. I mean, who wants to work those kinds of hours? That’s the power of greed.”

No, it’s not greed that motivates. It’s called the Achievement ethic.
H/t my dear friend Bill.
