OWS has made it worldwide.
I was driving downtown in the biggest city I live next to, population 54,000, and lo and behold, there were a group of 10-12 people holding signs on a
street corner next to the public square, one of which was a sign that said, WE ARE THE 99%, having an orange background and bold black letters. I
honked three times as I drove by.
Most people don't care about the OWS movement. It's unorganized they say, a bunch of kids they say. They deny that the theme is reaching even small
towns like the one I passed through. I was impressed, as it was dark, drizzling rain, and frigid out.

Congress that serves it's own needs, and redress of the people's complaints lost in the functioning of the current system.

valid and humorous points. Our political system does need an enema. It struck a chord with me, and I was compelled to make this thread.
So this is a feasibility study. Nothing more, nothing less.
From my meanderings on ATS, I've noticed the possibility of having experts in many different fields as part of our community. I pondered for a bit
that ATS draws in the best minds on the internet, as I found ATS from a google search I was doing on some long forgotten topic. I read for a bit, and
immediately joined. I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, but I do know there are some very sharp tools on ATS, experts in categories ranging from
seismic activity to photo analysis to economic activity. It's my belief that we have a group of individuals contributing to a gestalt intelligence.
What would the movement need? A group of leaders. Not just one person, but a council. Of sorts, or something like that.
Here's where I default to your ideas, and see what the gestalt has to say. Slayer69 presented the idea, and I've given you a few ideas to toss
How would ATS organize? Would the owners ATS be offended, is there legal implications? Members are worldwide, so we need to be careful what we
