I was an avid supporter of the protests when they first started. The first night I drove 5 hours to NY just to be apart of things. I have been following the movement non-stop. I am saddened by the lack of organization and control. I understand the point of this movement. I get it. Truly. But without organization, a leader, a mission, this movement will fade out and die. And that is EXACTLY what the people up top are waiting for. Have you noticed that we've gotten little response from the government? Who do they have to contact? And what could they possibly have to say when there are so many issues at hand that we don't even have a mission statement? I honestly think that we need to break this revolution down and figure out what the core issues are. Not everyone is upset about everything, and if you are, be a part of everything. These issues should lie under the OWS name, but things cannot change if there's no direction to go in. This movement is too broad to have a real effect. Please, I am posting this because I have so much hope in all of you out there, we need to calm down, get our adrenaline under control, and get it together. Otherwise, this whole thing will just burn out. I am not trying to commit cyber suicide, I am just being logical. Our actions will not give us the results we are protesting for.
