I heard someone say this at a GA. It took a long time to think about this statement, and what it meant.
The further down the pipeline of root causes, we always end up at the same source of power to change it- the people.
Its a people problem, caused by people, that can only be fixed by people. So where are all the people?
And that, is at the root of occupy, of what was so awesome. Sitting there and participating in decisions. Proposing ideas. Working in groups and the presenting the findings to peers. Thats the heart of it.
Its people who stop looking for leadership, and start being leaders.
"The goal of leaders is to create more leaders, not more followers"- Nader.
We need more leaders. We need more organizing. We need more occupy.
