The article presents a comparison between the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) and Tea Party movements in the U.S. It notes that the Tea Party advocates free-market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and constitutional freedoms while the OWS seeks equal outcomes, hand-outs and income redistribution. It adds that Tea Party members clean up after themselves while Occupy protesters do otherwise. Anti-corporatism and anti-crony capitalism are two areas where both movements reach a similarity.
