Think the Occupation Movement is Bereft of Ideas and Goals? Read This.

It is true that the Occupy Wall Street demonstration took a frustratingly long time to articulate a set of demands. But the claim that the occupation movement has no direction is false. You don’t have to look far to find a clear, specific, detailed and sourced articulation of a political agenda for the movement. Courtesy of the Freedom Plaza occupation in Washington, DC, you can find just such an agenda right here.

    Agenda provided by MoveOn.org.

    It’s nice that they’re supporting Dylan Ratigan’s “nobody nowhere can contribute nothing” approach to campaign finance reform. I was thinking along the same lines a couple of weeks ago.

    Maybe something more moderate, setting a $100 cap on individuals, corporations (which would include non-profits), or business entities of any sort?

    That way individuals can show their support for a candidate, but no donor can gain undue influence over a candidate.
