"We demand that Barack Obama ordain a Presidential Commission tasked with ending the influence money has over our representatives in Washington. It's time for DEMOCRACY NOT CORPORATOCRACY, we're doomed without it." - http://www.adbusters.org/blogs/adbusters-blog/occupywallstreet.html

That is, there needs to be a simple, concrete message stating the primary goals of this movement. I understand that it's more broad than this but, as it stands, it's too vague for most people to feel comfortable with.

I think Maximum profit can't be the bottom line to everything, kind of encompasses a lot of the problems in our country right now. There are people in the financial world who would prostitute their own mother if they could turn a profit on it. Greed is a mental illness and needs to be recognized as such.

One day, a trader on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, Adam Sarzen, a decade or so older than many of the protesters, came to Zuccotti Park seemingly just to shake his head. “Look at these kids, sitting here with their Apple computers,” he said. “Apple, one of the biggest monopolies in the world. It trades at $400 a share. Do they even know that?”
