The Occupy movement must build on its momentum through prioritization of its goals or risk disintegration into factions at odds with each other. In my mind the primary goal needs to be changing the political process to end its domination by the corporations and moneyed elites through their lobbies and cash contributions. Currently, access to our elected representatives and their willingness to listen to ordinary citizens is so limited as to be laughable. A billion dollars to elect the next president? Absurd!
