What is OWS about? It is partly about the commons
and how commons are to be used and regulated.

1. It is like the internet, a thousand ideas, some amplified and repeated till
a multitude of themes bubble up. And the authoritarian GOP, used to hierarchies and astroturf, does not know how to silence the 99%. The OWS have no leaders who can be attacked and whose character can be assasinated. They have no list of demands that could cause disagreement amongst the 99%. They want a fairer world and it is up to the politicians to say where and on what issue they will stand or fall.
