Occupy Wall Street Needs To Move Past Primal Scream
With the eyes of the world on Occupy Wall Street, the time has come for the protesters to translate their frustration into a coherent political movement. Leonard Pitts Jr. writes in his new column, “Next Move Crucial For ‘Occupy’ Movement”:
While the Occupy movement has spread broadly, there is as yet little evidence of its ability to seize political power and use it to execute the movement’s agenda. Say what you will about the tea party — a straight line if ever there was one — but give it credit for moving quickly to translate its angst into political capital with which it impacted the 2010 midterms and presidential politics to this very day.
