The Occupy Movement came and went. Yet it was never truly confrontational. It was vocal, a revolving protest, that, in retrospect, seems more of a whiney lament than a drive to compel change.
Today's Gen X'ers and Millennials seem unaware that the change they're going to need is rarely achieved without a fight especially when plutocracy has displaced democracy as the operating system of the state. The oligarchs will not willingly yield the political power they have truly "captured" these days. They know what's coming and they know they will need that power more than ever in the years to come. They will need a subdued populace.
In The Guardian, Nick Cohen writes that the British have no fight in them anymore. Are we in the same boat?
