Distribution of income and wealth have seen a similar story. I spoke of that in this post http://www.debatepolitics.com/polls/...post1059972780 (Does the Occupy Wall Street movement represent the 99%?)
BBC News - UK High Pay Commission: 'Victorian inequality' warning
Seven Media Sins | TheOccupiedTimesThe media can’t seem to make their minds up which of the two we all are down here at the camp. The fact is that we are a diverse grouping of classes, races, nationalities, employment status and political persuasions. This movement is not party political, nor is it class-focused. It stands against corporate greed and against the recklessness of the financial sector, and it recognises that the current political and economic model is only working for those at the top. These are issues that transcend political loyalties and class. We have many protestors here that have jobs, some that don’t, and some that have recently lost jobs. We have teachers, soldiers, civil servants, youth workers, former bankers, musicians. The labelling may serve the media’s agenda – but that alone does not make it true.
That's what you are failing to understand.

Then along came a recession and all was changed back but people didn't really notice too well what was happening, particularly after 9/11 when people became afraid to say their point of view.
I think probably the '60's suffered from idealism which needed something deeper than was there. Indeed we saw a lot of people quickly change over when the political climate changed.
Now we have the top 0.1% with such obscene amounts of money they virtually are running the show and they are responsible for the situation that so many people are suffering from. Does it matter to them? Of course not. They are not suffering. What will happen to for instance Ireland which has suffered significantly from this debauchery if she is unable to live up to her commitments - think Indonesia.
The Occupy Movement is just people speaking up when change must happen. People from all over the world standing up in solidarity. This time we need to sort it out and come to where our centre is that we can move on in peace and stability. We allowed our progress to be stolen from us too easily last time. Hopefully this time we will find our centre.
