So what are the thoughts on the occupy wall street movement in America? The beginning-of-the-end of unregulated capitalism in America, or just another Leftist movement? I think it is possible it is the beginning of a "revolution" of sorts. there are parallels between the current situation in America, and many revolutions in the past The growing demarcation of the rich and poor is helping foster a greater "them and us" mentallity. The unemployed lower classes are filling up with the educated and recently retrenched middle class, who have crushing debts from Uni and no job prospects. The government are forcing them to wear the cost of the risk the banks took, while those who really should, escape responsibility and maintain their high standard of living. They even have what every good revolution needs... A slogan to unite under.
