What’s The Endgame For The Occupy Movement (Q&A Friday #108)?

“What do you think the endgame of the Occupy crowd will be, and when are we likely to see it?” — baoxian

Answer: The endgame is that it gets cold and they go inside.

I’m only sorta kidding about that.

I don’t think they have an endgame in any meaningful sense. The Occupy Movement has no coherent demands, no legislation will be produced as a result of these protests, and their strategy is probably something like….

#1) Protest as long as possible for whatever floats your boat.

#2) ?????????????????????????????????????

#3) We win!!!

In practice, as people invest more and more of their time in the movement and don’t see any results, you’ll probably see more arrests, radicalism, and violence. Then, eventually, either Donny Deutsch will get his wish and they’ll go out in a Kent State style blaze of glory, the locals will get tired of stepping in human excrement when they go to work and they’ll demand the local government shut down the protests, or it’ll just get cold and the numbers will dwindle down to handfuls of people until the liberal cuckoo birds return in the spring.
