1. shouldn't that read, "On reddit, taking questions?"

Asking questions about Reddit simply doesn't appeal to me, even if Taibbi is answering them.

Matt, a line of yours is lodged in my head: "Organized greed always defeats disorganized democracy." Unfortunately, while the animosity of Occupy Wall Street is still strong in early 2013, the disorganization of the movement might be even stronger.

So, if you were in charge of Occupy Wall Street, what single achievable goal would you (re)organize the movement around?

Again, to repeat, breaking up the banks is the big thing. That should be the Holy Grail of activist goals. Everything flows from the TBTF problem. If that can be accomplished, we're off and running. And it's not farfetched. There are a lot of people even in DC coming around to the idea.
