Abstract

The physical and digital fragmentation of the Occupy movement makes it notoriously difficult to define politically: in an attempt to analyse one local movement, the author performed convenience interviews with Occupy Pittsburgh participants, noting demographic information and political opinion. Through repeated interviews over several months, Occupy Pittsburgh became increasingly leftist and radical in rhetoric, even after dispersal of the physical camp. A similar trend seems to have occurred nationwide. The author opines that the organizational model of consensus may be the reason for the leftward shift in values and ideology, and ties this to observational research.
