How can three players play a two person game?
There are chess players who win by capturing as many of their opponent's pieces as possible as quickly as possible. They space out the first two captures to lull the other player into complacency. Their third and subsequent captures come in rapid succession, thus putting the other player on the defensive, keeping them distracted from what could have been more powerful offensive moves.
This is what's happening now. The space around the chess board is very crowded, but not everyone is in attendance. For instance, people who really think Occupy Wall Street (OWS) is the spawn of Satan and that corporate America is an angel - they're not there. In attendance are the Occupy Movement (OM), the government, and Corporate America. But chess isn't a three-player game. So what the hell is going on?
