You see, if OWS had clear positions, and wanted to organize politically, and had the majority backing, this is what would happen:
-sweeping victories in 2012
- lots of reforms passed
- mission complete
Why does this never happen? Apathy. The 99% is too apathetic to do anything. Life is still too cozy for them. As long as there is unemployement checks, food stamps, medicaid/care, and SS, there is no reason to get involved- all the basics are taken care of.
Those things will disapear soon, and when it does, the apathetic 99% is going to wonder what happened.
Most in OWS are still fine voting for the D/R Duopoly. That is about as far from revolution as you can get.
