Occupy Me: Where Does the Jew Fit Into Occupy?

Explore the possible Jewish reasons to follow/support/participate in the Occupy movement (enduring relevance pending, though posterity never hurts) as well as Jewish reasons not to. We'll use Rabbinic texts discussing government and social action, as well as historical memoirs from revolutionary movements (Communist, Zionist, Anarchist) of Jews who lived through them; their opinions and experiences. Come willing to spark an interesting discussion.
