Right - this has to be accounted for as well. Does merit continue down a lineage? Does his parents' success also fall under the same category? These are moot points.

What stands is the fact that simple "hard work" cannot fully account for accomplishment. Even if his parents worked hard to give him opportunity, it was none of his own doing. This is what I find problematic with this type of idea.

Then they were in the wrong place because Wall Street represents financial markets which are about Capital Gains which don't have the tax loopholes that corporations do. They should have protested in DC where the legislation is actually passed.

But the movement wasn't about that. The Wall Street movement seemed to be about demonizing the rich for being rich. There didn't seem to be any logic or reason behind the movement aside from wealth inequality, which isn't even necessarily a bad thing.

In my eyes, the movement was more about envy and greed than equality or morality.
