Occupy Wall Street: HuffPost Bloggers Weigh in

Posted: 10/17/11 02:09 PM ET

Who could have thought that what began as just a few protesters gathered outside of Zuccotti Park in New York on September 17 would flourish into a worldwide movement in nearly every major city in the Western world one month later?

The key tenet unifying the Wall Street protesters with their supporters worldwide is the belief that they represent the "99 percent;" a number that symbolizes the vast swathes of modern society who are believe to have been left behind in the aftermath of the financial crash. While the self-described "leaderless resistance movement" is criticized for what some see as a lack of a central agenda, others such as HuffPost blogger Al Gore, hail it as "true grassroots" protest, "pointing out the flaws in our system."

With that, here is the very best of HuffPost bloggers sounding off on #occupywallstreet, including Dylan Ratigan, Suze Orman, Stephen Schlesinger and Jim Wallis. What's your take?
