There seems to be a lot of non believers on this forum...I'm not totally sure what they are doing here. If you think this movement is going to fail, then dont participate and continue to be part of the problem. Everyone has there panties in a bunch because the "One Demand" is not clear. Does it really have to be? Just show up and protest against ALL the things wrong with our current economic and political systems. IF YOUR PERSONAL DEMAND IS NOT MET, DROP YOUR EGO AND SUPPORT WHATEVER DEMAND IS MADE. Is there a "demand" that that you wouldnt stand behind? Change has to start somewhere right? Once the demand is decided upon, are some of you simply going to say, well that's not the demand i wanted and in turn not support this movement? Any demand made is going to be a step in the right direction. We need corporate personhood stopped sure. We need big money out of Government, Medicine, Education, and Professional Sports. We need True Cost Economics. We need a President and other poloticians in Public Office (thats public office, not private corporate office) that do not owe millions to billions of $$$ to corporations for their elections into office. Obviously, in turn those politicians owe somebody that money. Any of those few above reasons should be enough to fire anyone up for change. But even if the above mentioned issues are not the "One Demand", I will still support the movement, because something has to happen.
If you are behind this movement, then you need to make a commitment to it and see it through. Quit whining and start figuring out how you can contribute, support, and raise awareness about this movement in your local community. Talk to anyone about whats going on in this country, any age, any race, any neighborhood, and they will probably tell you that the current system will not work...and that is because it is not working.
