Recipe for a failed Revolt:
Have an organization labeled with a very negative connotation such as 'Anarchists' lead the opposition. Sure to lose a huge % of supporters right off the bat.
Ensure the organization will NEVER participate in Politics or any other influential entities. This will yank all the teeth out of your organization's bite and put a nice glass ceiling on your organization's influence.
Do NOT have eloquent, motovational spokespeople to fire up public fervor. ie: A "Huey Long" type. Keep the leaders unknown and shadowy .
Support many, many controversial causes. Eventually losing more and more support as the list grows. Support gay rights, lose 10% of your supporters. Support illegal imigrants rights, lose another 10% support. Keep adding more and more volatile causes as you watch your support dwindle. This will ensure your organization boils down to a dense core of lap dogs and made highly unappealing to the 99%.
Do not involve your organization in cutting edge technology to garner support. Such as an internet news channel like RT news, etc. That way your organization's voice can never be heard by the 99%. Feign effort by limiting your technical reach to a low tech forum such as this one.
Have your supporters protest in public. Demonstrating to the viewing population that opposing the establishment will only result in beatings and incarceration. It's also important to dress down and maintain a threatening look. For the wardrobe, think: "The Crow" NOT "Friends", thus alienating the average middle class citizen.
Stick to ONLY having your supporters get public beatings. Do not introduce any new tactics that will result in your organization becoming influential and acheiving success.
Have strict censorship of outspoken dissent. Label them trolls, Republican'ts, Dem'olrats, Kochheads, etc. Appoint a forum moderator with no life and delusions of grandeur. Have many post and threads removed and deleted. Foster paranoia and isolate your regime from outsiders. Considers new ideas as a threat to your control.
Just add water.
There you have it, a perfectly powerless opposition that will never appeal to 99% of the 99%.
Think about it. The elites knew they were going to start class warfare, introduce austerity cuts and attack constitutional rights. They decided to first soften up the population to prepare them for the shock of the new agenda.. So they created Occupy as a toothless revolt. It's clever to design a revolt with built in flaws that limit it's success. Occupy could then demonstrate to the population that opposition to the establishment will only result in failure. It's a great idea to demonstrate failed opposition, demoralizing the public from starting a legitimate, successful one.
Occupy has turned into a wet dream for the 1%. The People are desparately looking for leadership and an opposition that can acheive success for them. Hopefully a new organization that the 99% can truely support will arise.
