    then an instigator becomes as unnecessary as a Creator to evolution.

      Necessity is the Mother of Invention.  That evolutionary (:)) thinking has begun to invent new ways of communicating in the face of obstacles - application of these new inventions (see The People's Mic), is of an absolute necessity.

      Human Necessity now demands OWS on a more general scale.  When scales become too heavy on one side, they no longer measure anything at all.  Balance is coming, like it or not.  America was fooled by some of it's wealthiest citizens into accepting loss as their fate, and gain by those that told the lies.
      There is an end point for wealth.  We talk much of the 'creation' of wealth, and 'job creators'.  There's only so much gold or money to be had.  When they have all of it, what will they do with it?  

      A People with nothing to lose, has nothing to fear.

        (as you probably suspected I would), and have been waiting all day for someone to reply to one of these comments.
        Dealing with a systematic problem, one not vested within a single figurehead or tightly defined group requires a different tools than is usual in revolutionary change, and imho OWS may well be part of that toolset, especially given that we seem to be giving up all of the components/actions that have kept the beast in check (such as G-S). The current path, as espoused by most authorities (austerity, etc) shows every sign of continuing the conversion of what should be a simple medium of exchange into some sort of strange combination of a surgical drain and a vacuum pump with no off switch.

        presuming on the intent of your name, but we need evolution, not revolution.

          the reason behind my screen name.  No one ever asked, no one ever guessed out loud.

          You are absolutely correct!!  OWS is like nothing before it.  This is a new kind of tool.  A new kind of 'revolution'.  One that hasn't yet been used or tried before.  It has similarities to other movements that have both succeeded, and failed - but it is different.  I am an Evolutionary in the sense that I see the world evolving around me, especially now in my own country.  I am a member of the group of humans that sees this social evolution, and I want to be part of whatever comes of it.
          I don't want to be a part of the crusty old, glued-into-place 20th Century thinking.  I want to be a part of a newer, happier 21'st Century, but I see that it will, of necessity, be the child of horrible and dark events.  As it becomes more painful, there will be more in the streets.  Change is coming.  Evolution is in progress, not just a historical theory.  It hasn't stopped.

            you ought to see some of my handles elsewhere in the tubez, (No, I have no sockpuppets here, just me)...
            You really should read up some bit on bogdanov, wikipedia's a decent starting point, I think you will find yourself fascinated.
