We are All Individuals

Via Tim Blair's Rape poll, I was led to some of the "Occupy" movement's Wikipedia pages. Have a look at their Wikipedia entry describing the "Human Microphone"
A human microphone, also known as the people's microphone, is a means for delivering a speech to a large group of people, wherein persons gathered around the speaker repeat what the speaker says, thus "amplifying" the voice of the speaker without the need for electrical or pneumatic amplification apparatus.

The speaker says a few words of a speech and then pauses. Those that can hear what the speaker has said repeat it in unison, and when finished, the speaker says a few more words, and then pauses for the those who can hear to repeat those words, and so on.
Just like this?

The Wikipedia article continues:
Several in the media have compared its use to a similar repetition in the 1979 film The Life of Brian.
There was no repetition in the film. They don't even know when people are taking the piss out of them.

Election committee head receives riches.

What is it about Marxists and their dictatorial quest for unbridled power?
