Occupy Changes the Political Discussion

What a difference in only six weeks. In this short period of time, the actions of unemployed, fed-up citizens, union members, homeless, and committed political activists have changed the political dialogue in two ways.

The debate is now about the 1%, how they have ripped us all off and what should be done about it rather than what social programs should be cut

Ordinary people have stopped feeling powerless at the relentless political march to the right in the U.S. We do have real power. There is now something we can all do. Some of us can camp out at an occupation. The rest of us can join in and defend the occupations and make our size and anger known. We do not have to depend on a narrow and bought-off group of "opinion leaders" to speak for us. The media has stopped treating Occupy like a joke and now devotes helicopters and top billing to even small occupations.

Oakland at the Center

Stupid mistakes and over-reaction have made Oakland and the Bay Area the focal point for what is now a world wide-movement.

But the movement must keep growing and getting stronger. The forces that normally run our society are just waiting for us to make a mistake, show weakness, or division.
