In our society, the only method of protest which works is by changing what we buy. You cannot be labeled a terrorist for choosing what you will eat,
choosing how much energy to consume, or choosing who to vote for. Notice what happens when a majority of people decide to change their behavior very
quickly. Recent examples are the Bank of America fees for debit cards and Netflix decisions to change their model. Both decisions were revoked
because of the negative response by a huge number of people.
What if people simply refused to speak when they were detained? That is a right. Imaging if everyone followed that advice. Instead of protesting by
marching the streets the occupy movement should be working on a new currency - like the bitcoin.
Perhaps the use of social stigma could change behavior. Decide who to invite to social events, based upon a person's job. If people feel like they
are on the outside, then they will attempt to seek ways to appease the reacting party. Right now the occupy movement looks like a mess - why walk the
streets when cell phones, internet, and all of our technological advancements could effect dynamic and immediate response in mass behavior.
Imaging what it would be like for a company if they were suddenly unable to sell a product for a 48 hour period. That would shake things up. That
would also be very legal.
