How will things look once the Occupy movement has some measure of success in the next few years? If things go well, how does 2014 look? How is our nation different? And, if we succeed in 5 to 10 years at making real progress on getting money out of politics & addressing wealth gap, how do 2017 and 2022 look? How is the U.S. a different place to live?
We all understand pretty well that there are a hundred ways the movement could trip up and there are lots of criticisms of strategy, potential divisions etc. Please set them aside for a moment and assume the movement goes really well, gets its groove on and achieves some measure of success that benefits the nation. What is the positive vision for the result?
We know in some sense that it's a never ending process maintaining a strong, vibrant and just republic but let's assume for a moment that real success occurs. What will the world be like in 2022 for someone who's 13 years old now? What will the U.S. look like to them politically, economically, socially when they're 23? What I'm really getting at is what will it FEEL like here on these shores then as compared to now?
Please offer your thoughts on this. I'm very interested in your vision of success.
