Occupy Still in Disarray even After a Year of its Disintegration

Occupy Still in Disarray even After a Year of its Disintegration

It is really difficult to exactly define what is actually Occupy today? Is it a network, a metaphor, is it still alive or id dead, and is it really the spirit of revolution or a lost cause, a dream deferred or what? Do you have any answer what actually Occupy is?

You can definitely not answer whether it was a success or a failure until you have a definition for Occupy.

Unfortunately Occupy felled apart in the city where the movement was born. Occupy Wall Street's disintegration occurred last winter when fistfights and vicious arguments started in the weekly meetings in New York City.

"We weren't talking about real things at that point", says Mr. Pete Dutro, a tattoo artist who used to manage Occupy's finances but became disillusioned by the infighting and walked away months ago. "We were talking about each other".

Meetings started citing only the episodes of throwing punches and objects at moderators' heads along with hearing accusations of protesters over each for being racist and domineering etc. Since there was no in charge, nothing was agreed upon anytime leading to more strikes by moderators and their refusal to follow any succession by the people who kept meeting minutes.

It seems that the movement has grown large and that too very quickly. Everyone is waiting to see what happens next on this first anniversary.
