it is a truly awesome letter...what people forget is that the whole occupy movement is not a protest in the political sense, but a protest against the whole way the western world does things.....the people in general have had enough of seeing a small percentage of the population enjoy luxury at the cost of every single one of us... things need to change, we do not know how...but we know that the present state of things simply cannot continue

I remember going to The National March for Equality, and someone saying "protests are very romantic, but real democracy is much more tedious and requires lots of endurance".

I support the Occupy Movements and that these issues are coming to light.  I am curious to see what, exactly, will be produced in the end.  Otherwise, these protests will be about the same as when Obama makes beautiful speeches about hope and change - wonderful to behold, but useless unless he works hard to actually make policy changes happen.
