102. They're not confronting them in enough numbers to make a difference.

So 'occupy' all the places you want. That still doesn't give anyone a right to erect structures in a public park, which is what this thread was originally about.

And we can disagree on whether to focus on Wall Street or the legislators but that at least is an honest disagreement, and does not deserve to be ridiculed.

And if OWS is about changing the system, then merely 'occupying' some public space will not do that. So if OWS is truly evolving as some have claimed, I think it's about time it evolved to more directly confront the cause of our current inequal system.

On edit:
And yeah, the 'fanatics' part was an over-reaction on my part. I apologize.
