If everyone has their own The Man, then groups with completely different goals can work in direct opposition while equally engaged in fighting The Man. That seems to render Rojo's point (X isn't fighting The Man, Y is!) moot and/or outright wrong. The claim that Occupy is fighting The Man doesn't reduce the fact that Libertarians are fighting The Man, and wouldn't even if Occupy and Libertarians were in complete opposition (which would be a gross oversimplification).

Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?
1. belonging equally to, or shared alike by, two or more or all in question: common property; common interests.
2. pertaining or belonging equally to an entire community, nation, or culture; public: a common language or history; a common water-supply system.
3. joint; united: a common defense.
4. widespread; general; ordinary: common knowledge.
5. of frequent occurrence; usual; familiar: a common event; a common mistake.
I would say that encapsulates the low-fat paradigm most people struggle under.
It also presents the first rational explanation for the change in the culture of business that I have heard. That the increasing complexity of production requires an increasing control and complexity of control of the behavoir of humans. And it is that 'increasing control' is one of the factors, and a necessary factor, that is involved in bigger Gov't, bigger businesses, bigger organizations in everything.
Which Libertarians greatly dislike.

attacking citizens who were filming the Black Block's uniformed peers. It's a well established tactic that works quite well when authority wishes to discredit protest movements and create a pretext for escalated use of force.
