Occupy the future

By CHRIS FARAONE  |  December 28, 2011

"In the first two months, you had to be out there all the time, and it was a total adrenaline rush," said Kauffman. "You don't sleep, you don't eat — you don't want the movement to die. But the reality is that it's going to take at least a decade to have a meaningful social transformation. And if that's going to happen, then the next bunch of years can't look the same as the first two months. . . . Sometimes you have to go and see your mother. She's been calling." ^
