A Movement needs success but what is success?


Movements thrive on a long series of small successes. Most Movements or actions hardly have any success. Successful examples were the Women’s Liberation Movement and the Squatters Movement. Women got a better place in society and young people a place to live. All successes remained inside the possibilities of the present society, there were no revolutionary goals. Occupy started with some revolutionary ideas (Occupy the Financial Centres) but soon these goals were replaced by small political demands. By lack of successes Occupy withered away.
