I think people just don't realize what's possible and it's partly our fault. I honestly think we've done a good job collectively describing the problems but kind of a lousy job gathering support that could be had. There are two things we could do to dramatically increase support for the movement::
1) describe specific solutions to these problems and
2) lay out a vision of where successful implementation of those solutions would lead (describing the other world that's possible)
People are hungry for real solutions and a new vision of the future. Hungrier than hungry. If we do these two things well, people will be inspired and attracted to the solutions and vision. Level of support would then "rise like the sun through the morning clouds."
What about this as a next step?: http://occupywallst.org/forum/we-could-do-this-the-easy-way-or-the-hard-way/
