      If we had politicians who were willing to challenge the accepted "truths" who had public support, even if they accomplished only small achievements, those achievements would chip away at the fortress.  There would eventually be a cumulative effect.  Just as we should not get discouraged if OWS does not achieve immediate results.  It will have a cumulative effect.  Already, it has put the isue of fairness and equity in the public discourse.  That will have a ripple effect.
