Fuck celebrity. Let's get our

Fuck celebrity. Let's get our shit together. We went all day yesterday without a GA. We need to come up with a process that can empower the voices and decisions of the participatory masses!

Your own actions. Your own Reason.

‎"I don't want you to follow me or anyone else. I would not lead you into the promised land if I could, because if I could lead you in, somebody else would lead you out." - Eugene Debs

No leadership still working its way into public consciousness

Repeating every word Tom Morello said is indicative of a sheep mentality, which naturally follows the pragmatic development of neo-anarchist ideas. They are new because most people can't even conceive of a society without government. No leaders. Greg, I really agree that a commonly understood set of messages should evolve from people who are used to hearing propaganda about western style demoracy. They need a new set of decision making tools that genuinely involve everyone at O.V. We all know that greed breeds socio-economic inequality in a capitalist arena. The proper route to qualify that statement would be that participants should talk about their personal struggles with poverty, and how inept governments are in dealing with their complaints. Also, "occupy the occupiers": the colonizers are the proper target of people fed up with corporate democracy. We need to take their legitimacy away permanently. You can get the ball rolling because freedom of speech is yours for the taking
