Anyone who buys such items misses the point. Entirely. And, unfortunately, I think there's a good market for the merchandise.
I agree with the points unanimously agreed upon by occupiers found here: http://www.dangerousminds.net/comments/first_...
These are real grievances, that most of my neighbors admit have affected them in some way. Yet, when discussing ows they throw up their hands, displaying prejudice and fear of the occupiers. They've been influenced by the poor coverage and redistributionist slurs applied to the movement.
Ows doesn't want to eliminate the playing field. Rather, they want to demonstrate how few people are really ON the playing field. 99% of us are benched. Regardless of how hardworking, dedicated, intelligent or clever we are, we will NEVER have a chance to step up to bat.
Because ows encourages us to have a discussion about the playing field, the system, I identify with the movement.
