"Well, it was inevitable. No person, cause, or movement is capable of existing in America for very long before some entrepreneuring pioneer comes along and tries to slap dollar signs on him/her/it. The commodification of Occupy Wall Street has arrived, but before we delve into how exactly the movement is now being exploited by corporate interests, let’s back up to how Americans are conditioned to think about social upheavals, in general."
