Movements need distinct targets to galvanize & motivate supporters.

From the beginning, the Occupy Movement has aspired to represent the 99%, therefore the natural targets of the Movement are the members of the 1% & their lifestyles.

We should aim to disrupt & subvert their lives in proportion to the extent that their greed, selfishness & irresponsibility have disrupted & subverted the lives of members of the 99% (i.e. "An eye for en eye" or "You f*ck with us & we'll f*ck with you!").

As well as images & stats of poverty, destitution & homelessness, we need to bombard the 1% with images, stats, hard-hitting slogans, etc., relating to the environmental devastation, pollution, toxic waste, ill-health, deaths, etc., their greed has caused.

We must make it clear to the 1% (including their families) that we blame them for all the ills of the world, we're not going to take it any more, & we're not going to let them off the hook 'til they've paid to repair all the damage they've caused, & 'til the financial, economic, political, media, & social systems have been revamped to exclude & prevent bias.

Unless we take the protests to the 1% - right in their faces - they'll continue to push the US, the UK & the entire Western world towards the rapacious "Hong Kong" model (& even beyond, if they're not stopped!).

The West's 1% don't give a damn about encampments & protests in parks, squares & other public spaces (i.e. the 99%'s spaces) - they don't inhabit the 99%'s world. Unlike in Tunisia or Egypt, the West's 1% can move at will across the globe, so we've got to Occupy them wherever & whenever we find them!

"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
