Let Pong Explain the Occupy Wall Street Movement to you

Maybe you don't quite know what all the Occupy Wall Street fuss is about. May you don't care. The MK12 creative collective does, though, and they've used the Atari classic Pong to illustrate the basic philosophy of the social protest movement. The changes happen slowly at first in the video. Things seem evenly matched, even if one side keeps on winning. Then, you look up and the financial and institutional unfairness that the Occupy movement is protesting is made manifest in the giant size of the right paddle. You can probably figure out the rest.
