The Occupy movement as an insurrection within the machine

One way to look at it. An eruption of the repressed into the field of bourgeois consciousness, a necessary beachhead made in the Daydream Nation consciousness of American society, opening the door to further action for social change. What's the agenda? Besides lots of things, part of it is simply to be there, to be present, to keep making noise, and to keep interrupting business as usual, so that the mass media can't deny that people are upset, that people disapprove of the way things are, and that they want change.
