  •  My wish (0+ / 0-)

    My wish was that the OWS movement would coalesce around a set of carefully crafted populist ideals and a recognized leadership group that could be held accountable to the public at large for the conduct at the demonstrations.  Neither has happened.  The leadership thing was going to be difficult and I never expected that to happen.  The failure to articulate the ideals (other than the 99-1 mantra) has been astoundingly disappointing.  You can't have a movement if people don't know what the hell you stand for and it's got to be a lot more than just "we don't like the upper 1%".

    The movement now is more about chaos than anything else.  Sad.

      Definition of exactly what the protest is about and concrete demands are a must, and should come immediately.   Every other movement i.e. Civil Rights, Anti War, Suffrage all had these components…..a means to an end.
