Unusual take on what the #OWS 99% should be after. Land. I would agree.

Occupy Big Oil (TransitionVoice.com) is a healthy impulse, for starters. It points out that the billions of dollars in increased profits of major oil companies are tied to Wall Street. But "running away from Big Oil" -- boycotting petroleum -- is much more effective and life-changing than trying to redistribute wealth. There is no social justice on a dead planet. Nor is there going to be abundant, clean energy for a crippled consumer economy. To demand alternative energy that would replace cheap oil on a similar scale is unfortunately the naive position of too many Occupiers: "The New York City General Assembly recognized the role of Big Oil in the declaration of grievances against corporations that it put out in late September: 'They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil.'” (TransitionVoice.com, Oct. 31)
