What next for Occupiers?

When someone asks me what the Occupiers want, i.e., what are their demands, I say that, for the most part, they don’t have any. It is not their intention to post demands, or hold the occupied property for ransom. Their goal is to bring attention to the biggest issue of our time: the Wall Street ownership of our government. Corporate leaders who have crippled our economy have not even been charged with a single crime, let alone been punished. They are completely immune from the law and have a free hand to do as they please.

The Occupiers are doing their job. They are bringing this issue into the daylight and plopping it right down in front of our faces. The remaining question is not, “what will the Occupiers do next?”, but “when will the rest of the 99% get off the couch and take action to solve the problem?”
