"I have seen other polls that say, something approaching a supermajority, is in favor of government subsidies for sustainable energy development, albeit that was before the nightmare of Solyndra. I saw an economist/environmentalist on TV commenting…"

Jon Denn replied to Ben Roberts's discussion "Occupy 2.0"
"Question 1: Energy, the 99 concept, the beginnings of a self-organizing system. Question 2: Why should well over half of the 99 put up with OWS's angry and/or starry-eyed liberal bias? This focuses us on what divides the 99. Exactly what the 1%…"

"99 concept is brilliant. But that requires finding out what conservatives, liberals, and independents agree on. Not just angry liberal bias."

Jon Denn replied to Ben Roberts's discussion 11/14: Aerin Dunford
"I believe there is a fatal flaw in the movement, as OWS claims to speak for the 99%. But the 99% by accounts of all recent elections is 1/3 each conservative, independent and liberal. If that 99% focused on what we all agree on, in supermajority, we…"

Did you mean calls to any action or effective action? Are the calls getting urgent or creation of common vision channeling the potential of “Occupy”?

Do you envision any action worth calling for?  Have the two parties created duopoly, or has duopoly/duality of every person/citizen created two parties system?

Do you share the opinion about global nature of any problem, interconnectedness of problems?

You must have not noticed that I am eastern European and I have better experience of “revolutionary” actions, reclaiming power. Around me the experiences of French revolution, Soviet revolution, Solidarity revolution are still alive. And yet we live in the same world, ruled by financial system.

"Oh, reading your earlier comment, Ben - maybe your 11:30 am is the "gift circle" whatever that is or the " additional hour prior to".  Does that mean that the call/online space opens ahead of time ? "
