Shouldn't the focus be on D.C. where the lawmakers who allow this sort of thing reside? What is the point of staying at Wall St. when we can almost be certain the institutions there won't change of their own free will? Doesn't it seem that the primary goal should be to get the laws changed, and to that end, shouldn't we be protesting in the capitol where those laws were made?
As powerful as this movement is, I can't see it doing much by staying where it is. For example: I wouldn't take you very seriously if you were protesting my activities/rules three streets over, but bring it to my front door and I might be more worried. Shouldn't we be taking this to the 'front door' of those who can change it, that is, the government?
Thoughts? (Intelligent ones please)
