    not make it so.  I see Wall Street still having much power and capitalism astride the globe.  If that is success, I'd hate to see failure.  A more realistic view of OWS is that it raised awareness.  But it's hard to see that as a great victory.  Just some incremental usefulness.

      it did indeed raise awareness

      and that is not a small victory

      i don't know what you would define as victory, but i don't think we even have the same goals  in mind.

      i know that my students know what the 1% means now and that is huge.

        can see what is apparent, but it means little if they do nothing about it.   I do not see that as "huge," just movement forward.
