After only seriously considering this event recently, and after much research about Occupy Wall Street, and without having been at the event yet, it seems that in order to be taken seriously the movement needs to come to some sort of consensus on what it wants, and how far it will go to achieve it.
So as a whole the Occupiers need to determine what kind of change it wants to see. How far will it go? When all is said and done will Wall St., the Stock Markets, Capitalism, Globalism, Money and other such institutions be allowed to exist? Will there even be a need for them? The question at it's base seems to be about the very structure of our economy.
We need to ask ourselves when considering such institutions, why do they exist? Are they meeting their purpose? How should they change?
Is our economic system working? What kind of economic system do we want? What is the purpose of an economy? What are it's governing limitations?
Should we change it? How?
How do we use our avenues of governance to enact these changes? How do we ensure that the change is seen through? Who do we put in charge? How do we hold them accountable?
What is the question, Occupiers?
