David Davidington is discussing:

Demonstrations led by schoolchildren took place in hundreds of cities around the globe.

The current banner pictures (a women with tears in her eyes flowers in her hair and a mask that reads 'help!') is everything wrong with this movement.

Empty, emotional pandering. When has crying and demanding someone else help you ever been a force for change in the world?

One of the reasons 'Occupy X' failed was a lack of central leadership and planning. They had no goal, only feelings. Well that wasn't enough then and it won't be now.

Their mascot is a child and their cause is their feelings. Until their protest matures enough to be able to make some realistic suggestions then it will continue to be just what it has been. Virtuous and empty.
