  •  It's the mentality that's privileged (0+ / 0-)

    Organizing around not going to the mall, rather than a meaningful strike of labor (what's the point of not going shopping one day and then going shopping the next day?).

    •  No one said it was limited to malls (5+ / 0-)

      And there is nothing wrong with diverse approaches. Occupiers also helped homeowners who were being foreclosed stay in their homes by Occupying the homes to prevent authorities from entering. They also fed the homeless. They protested all the transgressions of Wall Street on the working class.

      Nice try at a strawman. No one ever said Occupy was relying on one tactic. In Occupy, there were many working groups proposing different projects. One tactic alone does not define Occupy.
