The idea of holding banks and wall st responsible for the subprime loan crisis, derivatives and the loss of 50% of shareholder wealth was important. Not only did these crooks destroy a generation of wealth, they got massive a massive bailout, jacked up credit rates and cut credit to consumers. These are the very taxpayers that saved their asses. They also gave million dollar parachutes to the very idiots that caused this in the first place.
The occupy movement never organized as a logical and mature movement. They allowed every bum and freak to come in and turn it into a circus. The whole idea was a giant clusterfuck and no wonder it ended up as a joke. Instead of dressing up as zombies and walking in front of the stock exchanged, they should have came up with a coherent political movement with a set of understandable goals.
