I've been reading and researching on this movement, and I think I've come to understand OWS deep-seated grievances...
That the 1%, super-rich, (it is actually more like 25%, but I understand why 1% is more catchy), holds more money than the the majority, which are the middle and lower classes...
That banks and corporations use their influence to try and direct to governing of the nation...
These are valid points, but are also partly the basis of any capitalist economy. And though OWS has become news worthy in the past couple of months, it seems fractured and inconsistent nation-wide. Little or no census seems to have been taken on the final destination OWS would like arrive.
So I ask OWS members this:
What are the goals of OWS?
Do you plan on pushing the shut down of these Fortune 500 companies and banks to protect civil liberties of those that never climbed the social ladder? Or to have government regulate the influence they have on politics, eliminating free enterprise? Or adopting a system of income equality where the possibility of betterment of one's life becomes but a mere dream?
