21. "how long can this movement last without a leader or set of leaders that will unite us even more?"

Forever, probably.

I like this quote from a post by DUer Deep 13:

"By creating demands or selecting leaders, the movement would define itself in opposition to the status quo casting itself as “the other” and apart from what is normal. Further, a specific leadership renders it vulnerable to decapitation by removing that leadership by arrest, death, or bribery. OWS and any larger movement that grows from it ought to continue to avoid that trap by remaining a decentralized movement."
