In regards to the aftermath of OWS, many people are unsure of what is to come. As mentioned in the article, one protestor had a so-called “hippy mentality” and said they were there to have a good time. The protestors all band together in order to make a statement and stand up for what they believe in. The common goal is to make a significant change in society. Although their motives and reasons are different, many people want to be heard. They are representing the 99% and versing the 1%, the elite. The article states, “First, let us not blame people and their attitudes: the problem is not corruption or greed, the problem is the system that pushes you to be corrupt. The solution is neither Main Street nor Wall Street, but to change the system where Main Street cannot function without Wall Street”. They are pushing the blame to the system as opposed to the people. Corruption is so prominent nowadays. Even the media is corrupt and picks and chooses what should be shown. Their take influences people who are watching and shapes their opinions and views. OWS certainly has a great deal off attention and although they may have stopped for a bit, it was a pause and not a full stop because they will keep fighting until justice is served in some way. Who knows when that will be.
