Occupy Wall Street is a movement to equality. Worldwide, facets of Occupy make a variety of demands, but, fundamentally, the movement represents the classic human striving for equality.
Occupy’s founding grievance decries the corrupt relationship between citizens with money and citizens elected as politicians. It has always been true: Money talks. So, it is not surprising that our elected officials create laws that favor the ultra-rich. In our present system, money is necessary to fund campaigns and the mass media that make or break a candidate.
