What did the "Occupy" Movements accomplish?


It was a major event in NY, spreading like fire all over the country. But did it achieve anything for it's supporters? If yes, what? If no, why not?

    I don't mean that the young people examining these issues want anarchy, they're just realizing that there is nothing in place if you try to "delete" what you have.They're trying to figure out the means to their end. It's not an easy puzzle to solve.

    I cringe whenever I see or hear the term "economic inequality." What do you want, socialism? Not everyone is smart or capable or ambitious - those are the facts of life. Safety net for the truly needy? Sure. But Marxism? No thanks!

    Young people like Nathan Schneider author of ""Thank You Anarchy" and a staff editor of http://wagingnonviolence.org/; activists like Nicole Carty of The Other 98%, and others like them r extremely active in a new kind of social movement, I believe.

    Swordsbane, I worked in Madison when deaf citizens and the leader of the deaf community, together with a caring congressman created the State Office for Deaf and Hearing Impaired. Lives improve with activism!
