OWS Popular Support in Decline

There are several polls out in the last week which show more Americans disapprove of OWS than approve. That there is even a question of support shows the reactionary nature of the US population and a big part of why working class living standards will continue to erode. Without a concept of class resistance and solidarity life is but a lottery ticket, yes some will win, but the vast majority won't. We can complain about the greedy ruling class, but they are doing what they do. What else can one expect of a ruling class in capitalism but a bunch of rapacious jackals ? At some point the American public bought into the idea of exceptionalism, and there is absolutely no reason to expect a Left turn in this country on economic matters. For all these reasons, the U.S. is finished. It's over. We are a Rome in decline.
