"The Money Masters" video is a must-see for those moving deeper into the Occupy movement

Posted on December 16, 2011 at 11:00pm 0 Comments

This youtube video series is a must-see for those moving deeper into the Occupy movement. It's called "The Money Masters" and very effectively unveils the story of money - how it gets created, and how certain men throughout history have manipulated it. Understanding important aspects of our history gives us the power of choice - to repeat it, or change it. http://ning.it/vnQq2N…

When a Leadership Ecology occurs, a web of relationships emerges revealing each person’s authentic leadership qualities through the transfer of their power to others. When done in a conscious way – a shared collaborative awakening happens.See More

Remembering a Place for the Children in the Occupy Movement

After reading this in my email box today, it occurred to me:Where are all the children in the Occupy Movement?In a way, isn't what we are doing mostly for them? Anyway, read these and you'll learn what love is ...!LOL!What Love means to a 4-8 year old. ... A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, 'What does love mean?' The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. Slow down for three minutes to read this. It is so worth it. Touching words from the mouth of babes.   'When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love.' Rebecca- age 8 'When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.' Billy -…See More

Thanks Vic,

I'm not entirely sure what this web site is all about, but I'm a retiree way up in Maine and want to get involved somehow.  I do participate in a local Occupy demonstration on Saturdays.

I'm a child of the '60's and so glad to see this generation starting to take action on this important issue!!!

"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
