I tweeted this last night, but it bears repeating:
The worst trespass in America is to challenge the financial elite. We're taught from day one to buy their crap, and to never talk back.
Occupy Wall Street is a threat to ongoing consumer complacency in the face of corporate overreach and power consolidation. In the eyes of the masters, this cannot stand. So the protesters were evicted.
But I sure hope they'll be back.
