    infinite growth and watch the world get destroyed. People showed up to Occupy, and it was successful to the extent that it was because it addressed a broad dissatisfaction with the way the crisis had been dealt with. Not because people wanted jobs. Fair wages aren't addressed by a demand for jobs. Healthcare isn't addressed by a demand for jobs. Demanding jobs would be one of the most useless demands we could have made. The demand was for a more just socio-politico-economic system. What exactly that looks like needs to be discussed.

    The rest is all just "true progressive" angst no one cares about.
    Except all those people that supported Occupy until the smear jobs started and the media narrative kicked in. Let's ignore that though, that's inconvenient.
