Protest Politics

11 Oct 2011

Ian David at Spreading Santorum discusses the key difficulty facing Occupy Wall Street:

It is actually pretty easy to get a bunch of people who are mad and feeling disenfranchised together to complain about what’s wrong. It’s a lot harder to come to a consensus about specific policies to take to improve matters. That takes hard work.

Put another way, “what’s next?”.

The Occupy movement has rallied the troops and an audience that is listening; it is time to stop tearing down walls and start to create something. It’s time to govern.
