Occupy Farewell

Over the last couple of weeks we have seen the Occupy movement slowly fade out of the popular media as each camp has been broken up some by force others by peaceful means. Many people wondering what it was all about. Though they had no clear aim except to end special interest groups in D.C.. They did give voice even for a short while to the plight of the middle and lower classes which is being crushed under the feet of big business in order to feed its own greed. They did prove that people do have the spirit of change within them and that it’s only a matter of time before a new and bigger movement grows from the seeds that have been planted. My only fear is that Civil Disobedience will become lost and give way to violence which I do not think is the answer. If you start in bloodshed as history shows nothing good comes of it.
The only downfall of this movement is that they could not separate the true believers from the clingers on making the movement misunderstood and foolish as far as the average American and media was concerned. But there is no doubt that a new movement will come as a result of what we have seen here today and they hopefully will get a change but the awareness is out there and that’s the first step.
can you topple a government without violence? We will have to wait and see.
