Playing by the rules

Andrew Sullivan pulls out some key excerpts from an essay by Freddie deBoer.

My take: The Occupy Wall Street movement appears like it might be getting taken over by people who think that they should be in a better situation because they played by the rules, and want their position in society restored/provided–instead of being led by people who think the rules themselves are the heart of the issue.

I guess that’s a key question. Is ‘success’ from occupy wall street increased employment, and a society where there is a clear path to the middle class (like we used to have–college -> law or whatever), or is it a complete re-imagination of our society? The former is a bit underwhelming.
