How Occupy Wall Street Busts the Myth Of the Me Generation

Posted 5 years ago on Oct. 15, 2013, 7:14 p.m. EST by OccupyWallSt (1) from Plainfield, NJ

The rhythmic energy of the demonstrations at Liberty Plaza last September was striking on the two year anniversary action of Occupy Wall Street, a movement that the rest of the country believed to have disappeared into silence. Here it was, resurrected and as alive.

The essence of the protests was the compassion in the voices of the people holding hands, singing, and teaching on the issues that faced others, not only themselves.

Interesting to consider that Occupy Wall Street is a movement composed primarily of a demographic — young 20-somethings — that the America often derides as narcissistic, selfish, and lazy.

Something’s wrong here.

How is the commentary on the new Me Generation any different from the commentary on any other prior generation?

There isn't. Not one bit.

So, is Occupy a movement or is there a need to have a 10 CD music collection in 20 years for the low, low price of......?

Give these clowns the finger and keep on walking. They want nothing more than to find new ways to sell you.

I was 21 years old when I was verbally accosted by a Boomer. He demanded to know what the hell was wrong with my generation and made the claim his generation was better because they were protesting in the streets. 'Cept they weren't. It was a very small group of people that were protesting in the streets. Not to mention that the Boomer generation deliberately allowed mass quantities of undocumented workers in to specifically drive down wages.

He was just a dickhead on a bar stool. Just like the individuals that lay claim that the generation in question has something wrong with them. Dickheads on bar stools.
