Occupy Wall Street
has already weathered the usual early storms. The kept media ignored
the protest, but that failed to end it. The partisans of inequality
mocked it, but that failed to end it. The police servants of the status
quo over-reacted and that failed to end it – indeed, it fueled the fire.
And millions looking on said, "Wow!" And now, ever more people are
organising local, parallel demonstrations – from Boston to San Francisco
and many places between.
