As you say, the Occupy movement may not be in the media spotlight, but it is still active. Even in my small Wisconsin home town, there is a faction that my nephew is involved with and updates on efforts are posted daily. They are out there with protests, letter-writing campaigns and fact/stat/news dissemination via the web.

The movement has done what was intended - knocked the blinders off the masses. I don't know how anyone can truly dispute that simple fact. OWS was the first domino on an organic pathway.[Click to View YouTube Video]

Yes - I think the video is excellent in and of the effrot and effect, but also poignant in this thread.

As worker bees within the hive, They thumbed their noses at expected protocol befitting their status and - oh, my god - had some fun! Probably on the company dime, too. Uh ohhhh....THIEVES!!!!

The first little shove started off a far-spreading topple - corporate brand after brand being nicked.

The locale - corporate place of business.
The domino was not perfect. They had a few missteps, and talked about how to better achieve in future.

This domino run provides an apt analogy for a microcosm of the OWS movement.

It got ugly in Seattle today. Huge crowd of Occupiers held a parade, but a subgroup (mostly wearing black, whatever that means), broke away and started smashing storefront windows.

Not real helpful, no matter what side of the parade you're on.

It's a conspiracy. A popular movement turned unpopular by the 1% planting a few bad seeds. If I was an Occupier I'd be pissed.
