If an opposition of the a status quo demands nothing,
does the status quo have nothing give?

If the goal of occupation with no demands
is to initiate positive change
... and the only way to initiate positive change is to peacefully testify
in mass
without demands,
could occupation without demands increase the likleyhood
of creating positive change?See More

Can not demanding anything allow an unnamed movement
to evolve and re-evolve?

How can you win
if you don't have demands?
...
How can you lose?

Is the only way for a status quo to "win" against a demandless subculture
to eliminate the occupation by outlasting it,
or by force?

Is the only way for a demandless subculture to lose
stopping started?

Is an offer of negotiation by a status quo
a win for a demandless occupation?

Is an uncalled for concession a win?

Could renegotiated undemanded concessions
indicate positive change?See More

I have difficulty finding your opinion.

Interestingly, while I agree with some of the Occupy complaints, though I am not sure what they all are, I find their solutions incredibly selfish, greedy and short sighted, though I am not sure of what they all are.
