Posted on November 20, 2011 at 2:31am 1 Comment

This was posted on Occupy Portland's Facebook page earlier today.  Marianne Williamson does an unbelievable job of laying out what I feel is the moral imperative behind Occupy, what's at stake, and what it means to truly follow the principles of nonviolent resistance...and so much more.  Well worth the lengthy listen.

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More
