      ...because I think something is being missed in this discussion and in the diary.  Occupy isn't a single entity.  The various different iterations of the movement in various different localities are all a little different from each other.  This might account for the wide variety of opinions and experiences that people have regarding Occupy.  

      Personally, I have been both critical of and delighted by Occupy. But I think it's strange to declare that it has failed (as the diarist nearly does) since it is still ongoing and evolving.
