Occupy Wall Street: "It Is a Revolution"

[Princeton professor Cornell] West, who compared the "U.S. Autumn" to the so-called Arab Spring, believed in the longevity of Occupy Wall Street, as long as protesters stay strong.

"I think we gotta keep the momentum going, because it's impossible to translate the issue of the greed of Wall Street into one or two demands," West stated.

"In the end, we are really talking about what Martin King would call a revolution - a transfer of power from oligarchs to everyday people of all colours. And that is a step-by-step process, it's a democratic process, it's a non-violent process – but it is a revolution."

This is a big thing and it is the real thing (not manufactured). It is going pretty much along the class and generational lines that Ravi Batra and Strauss & Howe have described.
