My Advice to the Occupy Wall Street Protesters | Politics News | Rolling Stone

Matt Taibbi suggests a few possible demands for the Occupy Wall Street protestors. I’m still trying to wrap my head around the whole thing. He says that they can’t continue to be unfocused, but I’m not sure that’s really true. The lack of focus makes them even scarier in some ways. I guess the idea is that they won’t be able to get anything done without focusing on specific issues, but they’ve already achieved their big goal which is spurn the conversation around their issues in a serious way. It’s all very postmodern ;)
