I went to Occupy Dallas, expecting to meet the tip of the sword of democratic activism, progressive DOERS ready and able to adopt better ways to lead us all to better days...
Instead, I was met with disillusioned revolutionaries who lack the tools to affect real political change.
I am SURE you know what I am talking about, given about half the messages on this board are saying the same thing. With each message I read, with every e-mail I send that gets no response, and when I present Motions (http://occupywallst.org/forum/ows-motion-i-seek-a-2nd/), that get zero traction...I lose a little heart, become more hopeless, and grow more sad...
I've begun to wonder if it is worth it, and how much longer I can hold onto something that doesn't exist- the 'idea' that this movement CAN cause real political change. I only seek better days, through the implementation of better ways, but I am slowly reaching the conclusion that this movement isn't capable of any such thing.
We have an AWESOME opportunity, and OWS is pissing it away with leaderless, messageless, inaction...
On a scale of 1-10, how DISAPPOINTED are 'you' in OWS???
