OWS is looking like a lost cause, huh?

“You are the 99 percent!” Browne, in leather jacket, blue jeans and Salomon athletic shoes, told the modest crowd. “This is what democracy looks like.”

But this is not what a mass movement looks like…

But it looks more and more like a lost cause, as the masses fail to mobilize behind the Occupy activists.

After Browne’s performance on the plaza, I asked the singer about the failure of the movement to ignite. “I see this encampment lasting through the winter, and I see the movement playing a role in the coming election,” he said, predicting that the political parties would grapple “with a growing people’s movement.”
