I would rather not

Waiting in planes and airports gives me the opportunity to read. This time in Courrier International, a short resume of several articles published in the press around the world, including one initially featured in The New Republic “A Patron Saint for Occupy Wall Street”.

Bartleby, written by Herman Melville in 1853 was already talking about civil disobedience, long before the famous Mahatma Gandhi. This article draws a parallel with disenfranchised Americans in Occupy Wall Street. I'm sure Bartleby ... would rather not!
