The OWS movement never had a clear agenda.
I didn't side with my "brothers-in-arms" because their apparent purpose seemed ridiculous--the
idea that bankers make too much money, or that corporations are taking over, or that stock
trading is bad...I dunno?.
I also felt manipulated by the media. The whole scene seemed staged. I never educated
myself on the OWS movement's origins, but in the back of my mind my BS meter was going off.
It seemed like a test-run of the police-state power structure, or maybe, possibly a gauge of what
percentage of the population would involve themselves, and to what extent they would protest.
At its very best I see the OWS movement as mostly displaced and disgruntled workers erecting
a picket line in front of the company. Except this time the company is the US government and the guys
holding the signs have no union representation and no goal...just lots of time, and lots of anger.
