Occupy Wall Street

This seems to be one of the most absurd movements in the history of movements.  What are they trying to achieve?  Things are going to get worse before they... well, before they get even worse.  For many years, the Earth has been subsidizing us and thus the middle classes all over the world have lived quite well.  Actually, we have lived exceedingly well.  But the capacity of the planet to continue subsidizing us is reaching its limits.  Consequently we will never again see the "standard of living" we have been accustomed to.  The unemployment is going to increase even more, to levels we don't think possible.  Thus, we should feel grateful of the relative abundance in which we have lived so far, but 2007 will never come back.  Never.  Consequently we all have to adapt to a life of diminished expectations.  Sure, the "one percent" will always be wealthy, but the rest of us should find happiness in other things and not anymore in wealth or the promise of future wealth.
