It was sure as salvation that the Occupy Wall Street was doomed to fail and it did. This blog is written proof that I had foreseen its failure from its very beginning. For one thing, it started in autumn and winters are wet and cold in New York latitude. You cannot camp out in summer tents as they probably saw on TV how the Tel Aviv protesters were having a great time in Rothschild Boulevar. Apart from the physical impossibilty of holding a long term outing in wintertime, American protesters decided from the start to suffer no leaders nor organization. They had adopted the Cultural Revolution's equalitarianism and would not allow anyone to put himself above the masses. But, I pray, anthropoids as we are, can we do without leaders, sidekicks, enforcers - roles and rules? Even a symphonic orchestra made up by trained specialists needs a dictator with a baton. Third failure was the unfocused nature of the protest. What was the goal? What they wanted to accomplish? How did they measure their progress? By the number of photos in the Wall Street Journal or in Time's cover?
May be the real goal of the protest was to occupy Time Magazine's cover and that, by Jove, they did. If so, they may have confused media with reality. On the other hand, it may well be that in their social environment the media is the real thing and the rest just background and context. Conclusion: None.
