I’m noticing a trend. I first started blogging to help build support for the Occupy movement, as well as other left/progressive movements seeking economic justice. I have noticed that when I post about Occupy itself — whether it’s pictures of demonstrations, calls to action, etc. — there is little interest as evidenced by the paucity of re-postings.
However, articles about economic justice, income inequality, student debt, unemployment, the shrinking middle class, poverty, CEO salaries etc. still draw considerable interest. This, of course, is no scientific study. It does give me — in an impressionistic sense — the feeling that the while people may no longer see OWS as the answer to these problems, they remain committed to the rectification of these issues either via policy changes to roll back neo-liberal economics, or through more radical means and ideologies.
