Make no mistake, the only way the GOP candidates are embracing the Occupy movement is the way a lion embraces its prey.
One of the biggest criticisms of the Occupy movement is that it fails to define what it stands for, what it wants, how it's going to get it and what it's going to do. The right thinks this is a great way to mock the Occupy Wall Street movement.
I say the movement is doing great. The movement is not just another sit-in or march or protest. It's a major new phenomenon, a kind of social change invention. What the OWS IS is not as important as what it's becoming.
The OWS is, at this early stage, an amorphous, emerging embryonic entity and phenomenon. Like a human embryo at a very early stage, it looks the same as the embryos of many creatures. Further differentiation and unfolding of the genetic programming must occur to discover what an embryo will become. Time will reveal what the OWS movement will become.

The US space program was very much the same. We had no clue how the space program was going to develop or how it was going to affect us.

more detailed bio:
Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.

Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.)
