    It is, as with the earlier occupations and the 1%/99% message, intended to draw attention to serious inequities and flaws in the current system. A whooooole lot more people need to pay a whoooooole lot more attention before you have even the small seeds of the kind of movement that is needed to create significant (let alone major) change. Where OWS has been most effective is in drawing that kind of attention. Don't criticise them for it - embrace it, encourage it, and help dream up more creative ways to draw more attention.
