A community is not sustainable if it's not growing its own food. We really are completely dependent upon one another to survive. We need the rest of the world, or at least a hefty majority, to get on board with a movement away from corporate control - a peaceful revolution - or we'll starve.
To get a majority on board I think it's pretty clear from the response, even from the traditional left, which is puzzlement, that some sort of platform must be agreed upon and put forth in order for OWS to be taken seriously and have any impact on the way this country is governed in the future.

Lets forget about the demand and promote what this movement already is.
We are building the community we WANT in this world. One that feeds, shelters (if we could...), and cares for all it's members. A community that hears every voice.
Lets focus on making our community exactly what we want, sustainable, open, free, and full of love. What better demand is there than showing the world what is possible even inside the heart of darkness.
