    And, the reason Occupy was so successfull in creating such a widespread movement, and widely reported by the press, is precisely because Occupy didn't get sucked into the legislative cesspool of corruption and lack of democracy, and didn't get sucked in individual issues and electoral goals.

    It was a statement against the entire system, and the control Wall Street has over that system. If it had taken up single "issues" and endorsements of single "candidates" it simply would have been the same old failed approach.

    The people who made Occupy happen in dozens of cities across the US were not peeved about a thing or two, but about the entire failed democratic process.

    That's what drew them, that's what made it work.
