Nothing will come of this event except 1000s of people with brand new arrest records. Wall Street remains unaffected. The banks remain unaffected.... besides BoA's withdrawn fees. That might have been the biggest accomplishment of this whole movement.... saving $5 per transaction. A victory, but not nearly the victory that they aimed for.

You know why it failed. Because everyone believed Hollywood.
'Inside Job' stuck the blame on Wallstreet and Big banks.
The real culprits are the Federal Reserve. It should have been 'End the Fed' from the beginning.
That is why it failed. They are directing their efforts in the wrong direction.
Maybe the whole idea was to give us a false voice. Only to crush our hopes and make sure we understand we are bottom of the ladder.
But OWS gets poo-poo'd and it's time to throw in the towel? If that's the case, then maybe myself and others who didn't throw in with this movement were right.
The more people that become aware of the system and it's true goal, to keep everyone in chains, than the better off we will be.
