    As you say, the original Occupy message was an effort to interject a topic - inequality/lack of economic mobility - into the national conversation from which it was absent.

    Today, partly through those earlier efforts and partly for other reasons, that issue is right at the top of the political conversation.

    Marching down the street and fighting with the cops and sleeping out in parks are strategies for movements that are very week, in their infancy, and outside mainstream political discourse. They are useful for putting an issue on the map.

    Now, the issue is on the map, so OWS II would have to change with the times.

    Art is the handmaid of human good.
