The Occupy Project has failed.
And it’s really simple as to why. These aren’t protests anymore. They’re usually just a bunch of people camping around city buildings. Then police get called in because technically the protesters are disturbing the peace, and the situation always seems to escalate into protesters and police being hurt, the main point being forgotten by both sides, and becoming nothing more than a 30 second story on CNN.
I can’t take this serious anymore. Sure it’s sad and even at times disgusting to see the clashes between police and protesters. But let’s be frank about this, if these protests were, as I’ve said many times before, more organized, had structure, had leadership, had goals, this would be completely different!
But as of today, on the two month anniversary of the beginning of all this, no one knows the true point of the Occupy Movement. People, whether protesters or officers, are getting hurt for no good reason. No progress has been made to whatever this is about. And this is all starting to seem like a waste. It’s really starting to get annoying when we all keep asking and still have no answer;
Dear 99%, what is your point to all of this? What are you trying to accomplish?
