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 ( should be our primary methods. Nonviolence must be our guiding principle.

"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

Leadership Ecology

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
