The first thing one must notice about the “Occupy” organization is that they have little interest in the details of a nation's problems or those of the world. It is, in one word, an entirely “fake” grassroots movement, led by professional organizers that were hired by a billionaire in the service of market and price manipulation, with the full support of the Democratic Party and their “Community Organizer”-in-Chief. (The one word is “fake.”) The ultimate prize is to stick governments, markets, and industries in their pockets and operate the system that the Nazis had in Germany.
Those slight but extremely important differences between the views of the occupiers and those of the Tea Party are nothing to get confused about. They are attempting to take advantage of existing discontent and that involves brushing up against real problems and then diverting attention from the real causes, and pretending solutions are to be found in the type of system they desire. If the occupiers were sincere about confronting important issues and pushing for real solutions, they would recognize the core part government corruption plays in our problems. But government corruption is in fact what they want; the more the better in their eyes. There is no confusion about why they're pointing fingers in other directions while ignoring the obvious.
We often go too far in painting such thuggery in colors of political theory. These are thieves we're talking about. Part of an organized criminal network. There is no confusion that their socialist flags are a front, not a real cause. The socialist verses capitalist experiment has been carried out repeatedly. For anyone looking at straight out battles between the two, capitalism won by a wide margin.
It is understandable however, how residents in some of the socialist dominated or formerly dominated countries can be quite confused by this result. What's been called “capitalism” in their countries consisted (or consists) of a mix of overly controlled industries often complimented by a large share of government owned and operated monopolies. The claim that such industries were operated as if private companies, to be profitable, has been the slim excuse for using the “capitalist” label. It is / was a very close relative of what we call “crony capitalism” and as people suffered from uncertain markets, low wages and high prices, their “capitalism” got a bad reputation.
I do not mention the Nazi system in connection with the occupiers lightly. Those who steer the operation aren't confused. They are taking over countries in the west from within. Without military force (so far), they intend to “occupy” to the same effect as if they had taken countries by military coup. We have already become familiar with the suspension and abolition of human rights. I have no doubt that slave labor will not be out of the question if they can get away with it. Watch labor and welfare laws carefully. I recommend spending as little time as possible in denial when you start seeing forced labor practices.
I note that the Democrats actually proposed internment camps with forced labor practices in the 1990s, for everyone with debts arbitrarily created by government policy. Remember “deadbeat dads”, child support and welfare reform? It wasn't about supporting children. It wasn't about moving people from welfare dependence to work. It was entirely about breaking down Constitutional rule, destroying the institution of family, replacing the system of individual rights with arbitrary government control. It's driving force was (and still is) “crony capitalism” sucking down 10 billion dollars of public money each year. By the way, it was a bipartisan effort, with the two parties fighting for credit; based on their propaganda of course, rather than the truth.

This article isn't about future events. It's about what's happening now and has been happening over the course of decades. The occupiers aren't trying to start the process. They're trying to maintain and expand it. Their efforts now are aimed also at countering the genuine expressions of discontent from The People and causing confusion about problems and solutions. But there is no reason to be confused about the difference in perspective between the occupiers and the occupied. Their intent is to occupy. Their effort is part of an organized coup.
