I came, I saw, I occupied... Still, nothing happened.

I demonstrated, I documented, I discussed... And still, nothing happened.

I met, I twinkled, I allowed consensus (did not block)... Yet still, nothing happened.

Then, I left, and I watched, and I pondered...

It seems like thousands of people are involved in this movement, and out of those thousands, shouldn't someone have the ideas we need to win? If there is someone with with the right ideas, involved in the movement in some way, shouldn't these ideas being propagated throughout the entirety of the movement? Is there a structural flaw? Is OWS doomed to fail us all?

It seems like there nothing but recycled slush coming from the "New Left" and the "anti-statists". They propagate bad, ideas ideas that were long forgotten and they are trying to be pass them off as something new and worth attempting, yet they don't even address the root cause of our problems, which is not just simply a word like "CAPITALISM" or "STATISM". Most OWSers hardly even know who the real players are.

It seems like we went to Wall Street without even knowing what Wall Street is...
