An open space for global conversation
The 1% live in a different world from the rest of us. They inhabit exclusive neighborhoods; travel in private limousines, helicopters, jets, yachts, etc.; shop in exclusive boutiques, delicatessens, galleries, etc.; eat at exclusive restaurants; attend exclusive schools, colleges, benefits, fundraisers, parties, balls, etc.; belong to exclusive clubs, societies, etc.; have access to exclusive & inside investing information & business & employment opportunities; have privileged access to lawmakers, govt. officials, judges, etc.; & enjoy many other exclusive & privileged benefits not available to the 99%.
All the exclusivity & privilege that characterizes the 1%'s world, from their earliest, formative years, leads them to regard themselves as innately superior to us, the 99%, &, as with all supremacists, breeds in them contemptuous, callous, & sociopathic attitudes towards the "other" (i.e. us, the 99%).
For the Occupy Movement to undermine & dismantle the plutocratic & oligarchic vindictive kleptonomy that the 1% are increasingly imposing on the 99%, & the exclusive, self-serving socialism that they've constructed for themselves, we must take the protests to the 1% & Occupy their world. We need to burst the bubble of exclusivity & privilege that the 1% inhabit, destroy their illusions of separateness, & shatter their (& their families') sense of security.
My first paragraph, above, lists many of the physical location types that we need to target to Occupy the 1%. Flashmobs & guerrilla protest tactics (http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1533611/pg1) should be our primary methods. Nonviolence must be our guiding principle.
