Absolutely. Of course there were, and are, adults involved in movements. But young people, with their sense of invulnerability, put themselves on the line. It happens all the time. We should honor that. But of course, it’s not a real movement, with political repercussions, without some organizing — angry youth without structure is what Occupy Wall Street was. It changed some of the discussion (inequality became a bigger topic), but didn’t have the lasting power of change the Tea Party did.
