As a 54 year old former Wall street CEO I watched with amazement the zeal and ingenuity of the begginings of what seemed to be a powerful movement. As the father of 5 I believe that real change is needed in this country to bring us back to what the Founding Fathers had envisioned. When the first settlers came to the Americas the thought of sharing all that was to be worked until the blacksmith noticed that he was working himself to death while his neighbor was sitting on the stump watching. The thought of sharing became less appealing to the blacksmith for obvious reasons. This is still a country where hard work, honesty and integrity can pay dividends. I get the 99% concept. There is an inherent unfairness in th way money influences government and power corrupts. The idea of a leaderless orginization with a stream of conscienceness used to bring about change is a wonderful dream in a world of dreams not reality. For change to take place it is always about strentgh in numbers. However, only if they can be counted. The question is for the Occupy movement to bring about such change conformity is neccessary and one must play by the rules to change them for the better. The question is has the opportunity been lost or is there still the seed of an opportunity.
