Is such an integration and coherence necessary, is it desirable, and is it, finally, possible to achieve?

13 Lafer “Why Occupy Has Left Washington Behind” “What makes OWS different …that this protest is not, at its core, voicing an appeal to lawmakers.” OWS is clearly inspired by Tahrir Square. …Egyptians succeeded … not because they occupied the square but because their occupation exerted direct pressure on the country’s most powerful business interests. …something similar—nonviolent action that directly challenges the economic elite—is required here …. …there is a precedent. Before there were civil rights laws, people broke the back of Jim Crow by picketing, boycotting, getting beaten and arrested by the tens of thousands, in direct action against the most powerful forces of their society.”
