Some insist the Occupy Movement is in dire straights, utter disarray, soon to fold completely and disappear from the American landscape.
This is of course, the hopeful notion of fools deluded by the allure of current market opportunities and the empty promises made by those propping up a system of fraud and of corruption.
Marketing firms, on the contrary, know full well what mood the nation is in. Consider the television advertisement airing on CBS in the Burlington area promoting a JCP sale dated 2.1.12.
It features few verbalizations - screams of rage, and a single word articulated in a variety of ways -
These screams and verbalizations of no are juxtaposed with images that feature various sales markdowns. The first and most prominent of these indicate a sale of some 60%
- Yesterday and yesterday only
This advertisement is featuring inherent unfairness as a sales gimmick. This reflects the depths that this issue has breached the social consciousness.
Inherent unfairness within our social and economic infrastructure will not go away on its own accord.
Nor will the current mood of the people.
The Occupy Movement is simply representative of the more agitated specturm within that overall mood - and so long as unfairness remains institutionalized to the degree that it currently does, this mood will become more prevalent and more pronounced.
Sophisticated marketing firms know this is true, they know it is true because they have sophisticated demographic analytical tools that can quantify in detail public sentiment.
Sophisticated marketing firms have empirical evidence - inherent unfairness is a subject on the public mind.
And the public mind says
- Enough is Enough.
So does the Occupy Movement.
Who really believes the Occupy Movement is done?
