I continue to be more and more impressed and heartened by this movement. As someone who has done political and activist organizing, I am really interested in the process. I love the nightly General Assemblies, Occupy Wall Street's "Human Microphone," and the overall message--"we are the 99%."
I keep hearing the criticism that there is no cohesive message, and I have to wonder, where do those people live? No, there isn't a single demand (yet?), but the message is that things aren't working. The American Dream is a myth for most people, and that hard work, education, doing everything right, doesn't even guarantee you the basic security of home, food, access to medical care, or work anymore.
I get it. There is a helluva lot wrong, and I'm perfectly ok with letting this movement emerge and coalesce. I hope it is the start of something big.
