I keep going back-and-forth on my opinion of the "Occupy Wall Street" movement that's spreading across the country -- not because I disagree with the discontent underlying it, but because I question whether a bunch of shapeless, formless protests without clear goals are really going to do much to bring about the systemic change we so desperately need. That said, I do agree with Matt Taibbi that the worst thing this nascent movement needs is to be boxed into the usual Right-Left dialectic that's already made our politics so toxic.
