How about a quick comment?
What's your take on the criticism that Occupy Wall Street people don't have demands, don't have leaders, are not clear on what they stand for?Here's an article I wrote on it yesterday. ( How The Occupy Wall Street / OWS Movement is Like the Space Program)
The movements -- in many places -- have quite definite demands, which are published in their regular journals and elsewhere, and easily obtainable. They range from quite immediate and feasible proposals to more far-reaching and long-range ones. Just as it should be.
That they do not have leaders is a compliment, not a criticism, though not for those who believe in vanguard parties and other forms of top-down control. It's an exciting and very impressive development, without real precedent, and has a lot of promise if it can avoid some familiar pitfalls.
Thanks for the article. Very good, I think.Noam Chomsky
