But mobilized citizens prevented the President from proposing Social Security cuts in his 2010 State of the Union speech. The Occupy movement changed Democratic political rhetoric, which changed poll numbers and arguably changed the election results.

Some people say, So what? Look at what they're trying to do now. That's true -- about some of them. But we've gained leverage, and we should use it.

While we're developing new political leaders and institutions, we must stay mobilized for the struggles already underway: To protect Social Security and Medicare. To rein in Wall Street crime.

Difficult? Sure. Risk of failure? Definitely. But impossible?

That's a fallacy.
