"We are the 99%."

It is an important piece of propaganda. It sounds like the enemy is Wall Street, but observe that the slogan doesn't point to an enemy,
it defines the group. The slogan is a twist on an old fascist standby: select a minority enemy, and create an impression of opposing unanimity. Once done, the leaders of the group have the powerbase to do what they want, making it impossible for anyone in the rest of the 98% to disavow this madness. When it all goes down you will be too terrified, or too busy, to dissent. -- The Last Psychiatrist: You Are The 98%
