Who are the 99%?

I realise I am going to take flack for this post, but I don’t see how it can be helped. Please, I am looking for answers, not more retoric.

I want to understand what this Occupy Wall Street movement is all about.

I want to understand who the 99% see themselves as.

But everywhere I look I see conflicting messages.

How do I separate those voices who want to make a difference from those who only want to make noise?

How do I separate the voices of people who have legitimate grievances from those who have gotten where they are because of there own bad choices?

How do I separate the voices of those who are looking for a way to improve the system from those who want the system to cater to their whims?

How do I separate the voices of those who are prepared to do the work from those who want someone else to do all the heavy lifting for them?

Where can I find balanced voices that will help me sort through tsumani of information this movement has spawned?
