Although I was very much looking forward to witnessing the Occupy encampment through the winter, there are 3 noticeable reasons why the tearing down of it only benefited the movement.
1. The park was turning on itself. The Daily Show did not exaggerate.
2. Back at Zuccotti Park now it's reminiscent of how it was 2 months ago- Friendly, inviting, clean & positive.
3. The movement has become even more emboldened, just as it did a month ago after Bloomburg's failed Eviction at Dawn.
