An elected CEO whose job is to secure as much economic gain as possible is not leading a democracy but a corporation. For democracy to occur, I think the protests should be directed toward economic power in the private sector and the government should be petitioned about lack of access to economic resources. Few of us "are not guilty" of making assumptions, accusations and innuendoes when not fully informed of or understanding the embodiment of a particular piece of history. Especially, if those half truths happen to fit our purpose. Tragedy is something we link much more readily to than happiness. Is this video very different than what is happening in today world? If so, will you explain?. This was a tragedy of the 1860s. Kennedy was a more recent tragedy of the 1960s. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIJaxu3w4-U&feature=player_embedded#!
