What Happens When You "Drive the Occupiers Off the Streets?"

People form committees. They find places to meet. They take time to educate one another about economic, social, philosophical and ideological issues that concern them.

They set up websites, they publish magazines, they produce videos.

They take time to discuss difficult issues and look for consensus and compromise.

They write, post blogs, spread the word, invite others to meetings, share information with Occupiers elsewhere. They identify priorities and create working groups. They recruit friends and develop working relationships with small businesses and neighborhood groups and unions and churches.

They plan direct actions, and mull strategies.

They grow strong.

They grow smart.

They get focused.

Their numbers swell.

They become better-organized across a broader range of issues.

They incubate the future.

Including the future hell for our Beloved Oligarchs.

Good job, clueless Mayors, police brass, and other spineless lackeys of the one percent!

I love the Movement.

Thank you Occupiers.

joyously,
Bright

1. They expand non cooperation in ways you don't want

They stop cooperating with illegal foreclosure
They stop cooperating with illegal eviction
They stop cooperating with illegal conditions at work
They stop cooperating with a corrupt system that is slowly killing them as a class and as a free people.

2. In a sick way, I'm glad they're cracking down on the "camping" phase of Occupy...

This forces the movement towards more and smarter "direct actions" that will really make a difference.

I have a feeling that Summer 2012 is gonna be a hot one.
