debt ceiling to the 99%, an astounding accomplishment for a movement that was not astroturf and that the media and politicians tried their best at first to pretend did not exist.

They are sending a message by the way that they are behaving. Cooperation, caring about each other, a more egalatarian society with fewer differences between and among classes. You cannot tell which of them has a trust fund, or a job or is umemployed.

So many things, if you are observant and/or reading up on it with an open mind.
