Occupy’s Influence



I was hoping this Michael Levitin piece at the Atlantic about how Occupy has changed organizing communities throughout the country and around different issues would get at a question I’m genuinely interested in, which is what happened to the Occupiers, especially those who were not previously professional activists. In fact the piece doesn’t and is just assertion without evidence–I’m willing to believe that Occupy might have had a great influence on the anti-Keystone pipeline movement but arguments do need evidence. Levitin was deeply involved in Occupy and so this reads primarily as a justification of the actions he helped create and it could be so much more. I think the real impact of that movement has to be told in part by following trails of individuals who had their lives transformed by it and then worked to transform the world.
