Occupy Wall Street was established as a revolt against the capitalistic society in which our world is emerged. My paper looks at OWS connection to Karl Marx' theory of class consciousness, revolution and the end result of communism, if successful. I will then compare and contrast OWS to a theorist whose focus is on NeoWeberian theory. The paper was produced through research on articles about OWS and Karl Marx. The hoped for result is to decide whether OWS will end in a communist revolt or diminish into oblivion without the proper support.
