This post is 100% accurate. The OWS movement accomplished nothing execpt pad the OT checks & retirements of the NYPD.

Has OWS done a great job bringing awareness to the problems in society? Of course they have. Have they offered any real solutions and have they made any real impact on the 1%? No. They're saying the right things, but it's mostly talk. I wonder how many of them vote, or would be willing to run for office. It's not the people who block traffic or send white powder to mail room workers at banks that end up influencing legislation. It's people who don't alienate and turn off the general population that do.

You are more than welcome to disagree with anyone, but history is proof that protests are apart of change. Whether this movement will work or not, only a historian looking back will be able to answer that question for us.
No sheet chief, you trying to dazzle me with basic history? What does all that ↑ ↑ ↑ mess have to do with my compliment to sobroguy? Must of been a long flight from Portland in to Newark airport.

Physical violence or economic violence (boycotts) work. When they wise up to this, let me know.

I'm not advocating anything but history shows that peaceful protests don't work. Fear of physical or economic harm ultimately drives change.

Not true: Nonviolent resistance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

How is this relevant? OWS is not a violent movement.

On another note: urbanlife83 shows up in another OWS thread, how 'bout that!
