We are the 99%, and we want... well...

99% of the population is too many people to ever reach a consensus or a singular agenda. For now it is enough that we are coming together because those in power have worked so hard to keep us distracted with our petty differences. If we can unite, not on every issue or idea, but physically unite in the streets and join hands with one another; that simple act could send a shiver down the spines of those who look down on us from their priestly heights. They will have to face the reality they already know but have refused to acknowledge: that our current economic trajectory is unsustainable. Perhaps at that moment they will willingly move toward the changes they already know are just and right. And if they choose instead to dig their heels deeper into the poisoned ground beneath their feet... well, by then we will have had time to truly organize ourselves and set forth on our own trajectory... together.
