Whatever Happened to Occupy Wall Street?

By on March 14, 2013

Occupy Wall Street ?

Its been a while since I have seen any occupy wall street articles make it to the front page of my news feed. Whatever happened to those guys ? Did they ever figure out what they wanted ? If so did they ever get it ? I don’t know what is America’s fascination with hating their financial institutions but we sure do a damn good job at it.

The fact that occupy wall street managed to get such a large following of people just goes to show you that we’re such an ego-centric society that when we do something wrong (such as buying a house we clearly can’t afford) we rather just pass on the blame to someone else rather than take responsibility for our own actions.

I’m sure we all personally know someone who’s on welfare who doesn’t even try to get a job even though they are fully capable of doing so. Personally to me occupy wall street was just a movement to get jobless teenagers to think they had a purpose in changing ‘the system’. I’m not saying corrupt bankers don’t exist but I think as a society we all need to grow up and take responsibility for our own finances.
