The magazine Adbusters sparked a massive national and worldwide social movement against neoliberal economic policy and global capitalism. The question of whether the Occupy Wall Street encampments would make one demand to the US President or several demands led to a broad popular discussion of class inequality. OWS exposed the phenomenon of class polarisation, which reacts to structural problems in contradictory ways. Such contradictions are shown to be at work in the new forms of post-revolutionary and post-political horizontalism, pointing to both the potential and limits of OWS.
