with no leader, no clear agenda, and lack of national support, what can the movement do to turn things around? http://littlebiggy.org/4660547?

From someone who was there September 17th in Zuccotti park, I would say not that it failed, but that it is failing. While it reinvigorated the "Left", it is too reactionary to do much good.

But like the Tea Party, Occupy has planted seeds of revolution. Let's just hope the revolutionaries aren't so foolish this time around.

The occupy movement has only 'failed' to go away!

The fact is Occupy has done a vast amount of work in a very short time. The radicalization of many people, the connecting together of these people in communities that did not exist before. The teaching of people made ignorant by the media, about anarchy and the many social issues that we are facing today,. the fear instilled in the corporate/military/bankster thugs that have been controlling our agenda for far too long, all this has been achieved and more,. and more to come,. .

True.

True.

The radicalization of many people,

"Many"? True. Enough? False.

the connecting together of these people in communities that did not exist before.

Making it easier for them to communicate - and be rounded up.

The teaching of people made ignorant by the media, about anarchy and the many social issues that we are facing today,.

Has not happened in any statistically significant degree.

the fear instilled in the corporate/military/bankster thugs that have been controlling our agenda for far too long,

Fear instilled in the corporate/military/bankster thugs? Don't we wish...

all this has been achieved and more,. and more to come,. .

Yes, yes. Bring on the "more to come". Quickly. We are with you...

No, no, no, it is not dead, nor dying. People all over the globe are looking to the US to lead. We must not give up, or slow down. Get your act togeter in Ny and elsewhere. What started so fast, will slow down, but that is because we need to fix our problems and realize that we have come so far, and this movement is so important, we cannot let it die. This movement is the only way to save the future of this country, and the 99% of this world we live in. We must follow our passions, each one of us, regroup, and realize it is now or never. We cannot let the 1% destroy what is good in this world, a movement like no other, that will change this world for the better. I am 64 years of age, saw nothing in the future, fought the system, but now I see change, I am excited like never before. Do not give up, this is our children's future we are fighting for, and a world where humanity takes presidence over greed. We are the world's only chance, we must not give up.

You can't succeed or fail if you refuse to pick an objective.

A "Movement" is just that ....

A "Movement" of The Peoples Awareness and Understanding ....

just like the VietNam & Civil Rights Movements ...

Movements' need No single Leaders .. Movements' need Hundreds of Leaders All singing the same song....

Occupy will not stop until the Minds of the People have Changed ...

Occupy will only stall when We stop Listening, Discovering & Learning ... & even then it will not have failed ..
