Let’s get our protest on. Wait in line for the new iPhone. Try to get a table at a restaurant. Buy groceries at Whole Foods. Tickets for Louis CK. Oops.
What’s true about Occupy Wall Street is that it made an impact. Whether it was raising the awareness of absurd Wall Street bonuses when firms were being bailed out or stopping Bank of America from charging customers $5 per month to use their debt cards. The Occupy Wall Street movement had a hand in this. It showed people that they can actually change things if they do stand up. Sure, the movement gets mocked and joked about, but it takes some guts to go out there and protest something you believe in.
Wait, is that the line for Kanye West?
