Jairus Grove on the Silence

This was such a powerful comment by Jairus (editor of The Contemporary Condition and human extraordinaire) on the video of the Chancellor walking surrounded by silent Occupiers, that I thought I'd put it here:

It reminded me of the final scene from the Birds where Tippy Hedron is walked in a daze to the car while as a viewer you can't help but scrutinize every bird looking for the one that will start the frenzy. Of course the frenzy never comes. I think this was a political event Hitchcock would have been proud of. Depriving the Chancellor of her fantasy of the violent activists was the truly horrifying act.
