Occupy Wall Street stands for one thing. Find.out what it is.

My favorite politcal economist Umair Haque says it the Occupyists stand for one thing: 


I wholly agree.  We are living in a world with institutional damage and corruption.  I know the vitrol for the Wall Street workers is a bit unfair (See Fred, I know its not you) but it is about what Wall Street represents. Wall Street represents the power, corruption and our damaged institutions.  We could just as easily have Occupy Congress, or Occupy Health Insurance or Occupy Education.  Wall Street is simply the most visible of the damaged institutions.

I want to sum it up this way for my nerdy-Star Wars-aged friends.
Rebel Alliance : Galactic Empire :: Occupy Wall Street : Big Four Banks

I mean? Who would really support the Empire?
