Occupy has been talking about entering a Phase II ever since the overnight raid that evicted the protesters from their home in Zuccotti Park. A deeper political involvement clearly should be part of that future.
It's true that Occupy employs a non-hierarchical organizational and decision-making model. However, that model still allowed for Occupy The Highway to make its long, southward trek to confront the supercommittee.
It should also enable Occupiers to get involved in other central political questions, too. I, for one, would be pleased to see Occupy coming back here to Washington in the coming months, again and again. And next time, instead of being late, I'm certain that Occupy will come just in the nick of time.
