  •  Thank you for highlighting the absolute necessity (12+ / 0-)

    of a political component to this movement.

    "Vote or Die" has taken on an uncomfortably literal meaning in the past few years.

    The changes sought by the #occupywallstreet movement can only be achieved through political means as corporations are simply not accountable to the masses. They are indifferent to th emasses, as long as they continue to function.

    In other words, they do not give a fuck about #occupywallstreet.  Goldman Sachs will not shut down and cease to function because of #occupywallstreet.com.  Only political action to reign in, tax and regulate Corporate America will achieve the ends of this movement.  No matter how many people protest, no matter how fierce the indignation, no matter how many boycotts are imposed, only political action will achieve the ends sought here.
