Bill Ayers: ‘I Get Up Every Morning and Think…Today I‘m Going to End Capitalism’

William Ayers, in a pep talk to an Occupy Wall Street gaggle, said he wakes up every morning thinking about how he’s going to end capitalism — though he acknowledged he goes to bed “every night disappointed.”

The co-founder of the radical, Vietnam-era Weather Underground was videotaped chatting up what was identified as an Occupy Union Square group this past week in New York City.

In the tape, he told the crowd that he doesn’t consider himself an optimist or a pessimist.

Rather, he said: “I get up every morning thinking, today I’m gonna make a difference. Today I’m gonna end capitalism. Today I’m gonna make a revolution. I go to bed every night disappointed, but I’m back again tomorrow. That’s the only way you can do it.”
