    or Occupy participants focusing on

    the economic mess, the murderous military actions by the U.S. government on the other side of the planet, prisoners kept and suspects killed without trial, the unfair legal system, the almost complete takeover of the federal government by transnational corporate cartels, the almost complete absence of real journalism, the increasing surveillance of citizens, joblessness...

    If I were a strategy consultant for the "1%" what would I say about the sitting students who were pepper-sprayed? What would I say about Occupy's relation to police?

    "...just ordinary people, you know, people who are not famous, if they get together, if they persist, if they defy the authorities, they can defeat the largest corporation in the world. - Howard Zinn
