At about 2 p.m. on Nomember 28, 2011, just a few blocks from the World Trade Center site, where construction of the Freedom Tower continues in earnest, I come upon a small barricaded and heavily guarded patch of concrete ironically decked with Christmas cheer. There number of cops is wildly disproportionate to the number of activists here, with a profusion of crowd monitoring and control devices no doubt poised to quickly detect and disperse any possible resurgence or flash mob. It is immediately clear to me that Zuccotti Park will never again be occupied, at least in the way it once was by Occupy Wall Street. The site is now fully occupied by the rank and file cops, who seem utterly jaded, almost disinterested in their total domination of the scene. Nothing occurs here that is not within their purview, yet they too have no coherent message or demands, and offer no solutions to the sufferings and injustices of the day.
