There's no denying that we must find better ways to organize our societies throughout the planet. Poverty, injustice, ecological poisoning, etc... are all problems that seem insolvable with our current political systems.
However, I do not believe OWS (at least not the American version) can be used to point to a better future. The problem is that Americans are big fans of pseudosciences be it religious superstition, conspiracy theories, or simply junk science. Boldly stated, Americans are not thinkers.
There was a time when many great things came from America, but that time has passed. A quick look at this website is enough to confirm this. What was originally designed as a place for OWS anarchists to discuss real problems has become a hot bed for conspiracy theory nonsensical drivel.
Fans of Zeitgeist will find there home here with all the talk of the Federal Reserve, RBE, equal pay, and other such unscientific talk. Truthers will be comfortable on this website for they can attack he government with all their pseudoscientific brouhaha. Religious fanatics are more than welcome to invade half the threads with talk of their sky daddy.
If you're one of the rare intellectuals in America, it might be time to join European circles. Leave your American friends with their burgers and creationism, and discuss the future of our world with serious intellectuals. America is no longer on the map of serious thought.
