    My point is that in hindsight, Occupy needed to be better organized and smarter.   Because they had no demands and no goals other than to point out inequality, Obama co-opted their message, made Occupy irrelevant, and then did the opposite of what he promised.   This administration is doing the same thing with the call to stop the war on drugs.   Six months later, the states that legalized pot can't even get a response from Holder on what he intends to do about it.   "Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe. "  Based on MB sig line, I'd say this administration believes money and power belong to Wall Street and the MIC.

    I really do appreciate everyone with Occupy that stuck their necks out.  Occupy did get inequality on the agenda, which is all it set out to do.  Unfortunately, it isn't at the table to represent it.

      occupy was violently put down

      if it can be said to have failed, it wasn't because of its structure.

        Everything it did accomplish, needs to be praised and respected.   They risked a lot for the greater good, and I'm proud to be one of their supporters.
