  •  Occupy has done a lot of good. Have to admit I'm (6+ / 0-)

    a little disappointed that it hasn't been able to stay strong. That is partly due to the media coverage, or lack of it I should say, and often when they  did cover it they did so in a negative way. But still  the movement did open the door to changing the conversation and that in itself was huge.

    It has made a difference.

      The ridiculous police tactics ---well, that got media coverage.  The fact that peaceful assembly is for all intent and purposes met w/domestic terrorist tactics - and that every thinking American now KNOWS this - oh my yes we ALL owe the Occupy movement a big debt of gratitude.  They showed their fellow Americans that "this is NOT your Grandparent's democracy or even your parent's".  I admire every last one of them.
