For starters, I’m not against the idea of the occupy movement. I think there’s a lot of room for reform in banking, investment, and government. I’m not against them camping out either, so long as they’re not obstructing local merchants and peoples ability to do their jobs. Sure, there have been some real unsavories causing trouble at some of the events, but to blame Occupy Wall Street for that would be akin to blaming the Vancouver Canuck fans for torching their city when the Cup didn’t go their way.
So my message in the below is really a simple one, without political prejudice or undue angst towards any group. I believe in the power of individual responsibility, and individual action. That’s all.
