Someone really needs to frame the narrative. And it needs to be directed at the primary driver of our economic problems:
Wall Street money infecting our political system.
Get rid of the money, and you remove the primary incentive these people have for making bad policy. A successful protest needs to focus its demand at the source of what its trying to change. Everything else should be secondary, as anything else will fall under the rules of "the domino effect". Everything from the big bank bailout, to the housing and student loan crises, can be traced right back to some bad policy measure that helped perpetrate these issues.
Policies that were mostly written by lobbyists or special interest groups.
Our economic issues revolve around policies created for 3 core economic drivers:
Trade policy Tax policy Banking policy
And EVERY piece of legislation connected to these 3 things, is a result of Wall Street money buying the most benefit for those with the most money.
So start with getting the Wall Street money out of Washington, and then start forcing change for better policies governing these three core areas of our economy. Changes that benefit ALL of the American people. Not just the very top.
So start at the root of the problem:
Wall Street money in our politics.
