The problem with the Occupy movement was that there were a bunch of people standing around in the rain while the Republicans/Tea Party got organized and took over Congress, the courts, a lot of state governments, and a lot of school boards. We might be somewhere by now if they had spent all that energy and taken that moment in history to actually engage in the political process in some meaningful way. Yes, it's a broken process, but it's also one that ignores outsiders. It brought home the Will Rogers quote: "I'm not a member of any organized political party. I'm a Democrat."
It doesn't seem likely that we'll have any meaningful reform until we break the power of the two major political parties. We currently reward a bunch of people who are pre-selected for over-weaning ambition and a desire for power when they act in ways that are meant to feed this desire and maintain their personal power rather than governing the country.
