This appears to be the conventional take on Occupy from those who are sympathetic (they wanted to "change the system" but "they could never pin down what this change would be was their undoing.") But isn't Occupy just the beginning of something inchoate, the seeds of what will come next? And we don't know what forms the resistance is going to take but people like yourself have begun to imagine an alternative. And as disorganized and contradictory as OWS may have been, it was a glimpse of what could be - even if it relied too much on what already is. It seems to me that the conventional wisdom, even from those who are sympathetic, misses this point. These critics still think the system still believes in itself and don't recognize that the game as it has been played is almost over.
