I don't waste time on games. I don't waste time on TV. I am active in my community and attend almost every political meeting that comes up, sometimes
3-4 per week that span the spectrum from left to right and the message is beginning to sound the same from each....
The individuals you see on TV in their tents are only the foot soldiers. Community support is HUGE and there is a massive cadre of financial and
logistical support behind the movement. These supporters work behind the scenes to move and shape public policy and have been doing so for decades.
You are only seeing the tip of an iceberg that will completely change the course of our country, our world and its leadership paradigm. I see support
from the churches, civic organizations, political organization, radicals both right and left, Birchers, Ron Paul supporters, Democracy Now supporters,
communists, Christians, Libertarians, small business owners, GLBT communities, Minority organizations….all of these disparate groups uniting under a
common charter to take back freedom and dignity form the powers that be. I have seen Second Amendment activists standing guard over free speech
activists. I have seen Born again Christians standing in prayer vigils between liberal, leftist demonstrators and riot police.
Something big is happening here. It is being discussed from pulpits across the world regardless of orientation or affiliation. The message is
spreading and people are beginning to wake up to the horrible reality of austerity coming down the pipe.
This movement is organic and collective; it is moving by consensus and without leadership and is not, despite reports, co-optable. I have never seen
anything like this. It can't be stopped because it is an idea, not an agenda or a political movement. It is a slow awakening to the absolute horror we
have subjected the world to through blind ambition and passive inattention and we are realizing that we may not be able to extricate ourselves
collectively unless we do so NOW.
Have you been to visit your local OccupyMovement?
Have you seen the processes at work?
I doubt you have.
Your first visits will probably mess with your head, as it is virtually impossible to find someone in charge. Everyone is a part of the movement and
the organization process. There are no spokesmen. Everyone is expected to contribute. Responsibilities are not assigned, they are volunteered for. It
is working. Most movements have established a workable system of consensus and are beginning to become more efficient at decision making and
logistics. There is a definite tribal organization that remains coherent through electronic communication with its neighboring tribes. Each shares a
similar structure and assumes a bit of local flair.
Mark my words…this is a glimpse of our collective future. Get involved. Get famailar.
Go there. Spend a weekend. You will understand that this movement is pan-global and is only in its infancy.
We are using the winter to solidify our processes, our intercommunication, our methodology and our will.
Like the troops at Valley Forge, we are planning our battles and biding our time.
We are organized. We are determined and we have nothing to lose. This isn't going away.
