138. Something to consider...
Edited on Mon Nov-28-11 01:43 PM by Bragi
I think we need to distinguish between "Occupy" as a tactic, and the "99%" movement for equality and justice.

I don't think it was the "Occupy" tactic that really brought in the support, though it did get attention initially.

rather, I think people supported the OWS tactic initially because of its emphasis on "we are the 99%" for economic inequality and an end to economic criminality and political cronyism.

At this point, I think the Occupy tactic has run its course, and the 99% movement needs to, and will, move on to new tactics.
