Note: Since the Occupy Movement and Occupy Wall Street were founded on the principles of democracy and are leaderless in organization, no one person speaks for the group completely in their individual commentaries or actions. In a democracy we have the right to disagree with our neighbors nonviolently, and speak our minds publicly, each holding up our own wisdom and prospective with which each other person can choose to agree with or challege. This is the manner in which democratic societies communicate, through a give and take. Since membership in Occupy is open or inclusive, its members carry no cards, therefore support for the movement can only be expressed with words and through our individual actions.
