(FOX NEWS) — 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.
