We were talking about Occupy Wall Street today in Honors World History. The majority of us agreed that what OWS stands for is right. I personally believe that our economy and politics in America need change. I do not mean to say that we need to get rid of Democracy. Far from it. I believe that we need to become more Democratic, rather than having both our politics and economy run by such a small percent.
My only concern (also brought from class, although it was my English class of last year) is that there have been many cases where the lower class have rebelled and tried to fix things, and someone ends up taking advantage of the movement and gains all of the power. I wonder if people will be willing to stand up against that, if and when it comes time for it.
I apologize if my wording and explanation isn't the greatest.
