I just watched a very brief video of a young man describing the various working groups at 60 Wall st., some of the folks that were chased from Zuccotti park. An image came to my mind. Too many cooks in the kitchen. It is easy to talk endlessly, every individual advocating for their cause or for the cause of the greater good, but at some point that's gotta stop and people just have to sit up and say okay, let's make the list simple. When the list is complete, then send the working groups off to achieve the goals of the list. I think goals have to be structured to fit within the government structure that currently exists, there is no other way except for a civil war and I don't think people want to go that route. Organize petitions that threaten to boycott corporations unless they back off. Organize flash mobs. Occupying Zuccotti park had it benefits but I think the movement outgrew that symbolic location and I think this was Bloomberg's attempt at challenging the movement to see if they are genuine.
