    If the government is provoked into a response even more disproportionate than what is currently occurring.

    It's a big game of chicken. Will the Occupiers give up in the face of increasing levels of repression? Will those in authority eventually flinch rather than to commit to a certain level of repression? Will they not flinch, but lose the PR war by eventually going to far?

    The worst outcome is a stalemate where Occupy is disinterested in doing new things to raise the level of provocation and the elites have determined that resistance is at a tolerable level. In general terms, the oppressed must make the oppressors believe that the cost of repression is both increasing and unpredictable.
