4. Leadership, Focus, Battleplan

The problem with the occupy movement that it is really a bunch of little movements moving in different directions with no leader, no clear goals, and no battle plan. I supported the LA movement until evicted, and then when I tried to find a leader I met a lot of angry very hard working workers, but no leaders, now I can understand keeping a low profile in our police state and with the patriot act, which gave the 1% and whole new tool box of suppression. But all of us in the 99% need goals that appeal to the 99%. A well paying job, Get Corporations out of Politics, Debt forgiveness, Free Healthcare, Free education, mass transit, or how about this: from the founding fathers: Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. What we have now is cradle to grave exploitation, and a partnership between business and government to exploit and control the people.
