      Reading it over, it sounds like they are misreading what I see as the truly
      exciting spirit of Occupy as experimentation with a new form of social
      organization and instead converting it into �just another� agenda of
      incremental measures to combat the ills of our current society. Hopefully,
      I�m making an unfair critique but will go there Friday afternoon and check
      it out.****
