Occupy Wall Street (OWS) is off the rails

I was totally behind the principals and methods of the Occupy Wall Street movement for the first several months of its life, but as of the last two weeks, I’m no longer on board.

With first the occupation of vacant, foreclosed homes and now the blocking of shipping ports in Seattle and elsewhere, the movement has drifted to far from its core values and is now in left-wing-liberal-la-la-land. The movement either needs to return to the core idea, the global wealth imbalance, or needs to give up and move on to other forms of political activism.
