Occupy Everywhere

A student at Episcopal Divinity School is quote in this story about Occupy Boston, an offshoot of the Occupy Wall Street sit in the financial district of New York City.

“I’m very excited to see how decisions are being made collectively and through consensus,” said Brendan Curran, a graduate student at Episcopal Divinity School. “I’m very excited to see us not emulating the behavior of the oppressive class.”

I am behind the curve on this story, more familiar with Jeff Sharlett’s twitter stream criticism of the mainstream media’s coverage of the event–and that copy with the pepper spray–that what the protestors want and how they plan to achieve it.

Can anyone out there enlighten us on the moral and ethical case that the protestors seem to be making against American capitalism, and whether it stands up to scrutiny?

The movement has a website with lots of information, but we are not the only one’s wondering what its supporters want. ABC News asks that question here. And The Washington Post has the most recent news.
