Occupy has become an Open-Source Protest movement for "Social Justice"! Its got that hopeful crazy imagination of true democracy and it just could rattle this "greed is good" economy to its rotten core (i.e the 1%)? It feels about as aimless as Wikipedia, OpenOffice.org, Firefox and Linux!? No-one seems to be in charge but a common good shared by passion and intelligence is driving a powerful theme spreading like an organism for change.
The theme is becoming "income inequality", the API codes are social networking and the endgame is awareness. Whether its Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Toronto, Occupy Boston, Occupy London, Occupy Europe or Occupy the World?, awareness is on the rise.
Now comes the rub!? Democracy starts to question the wealth accumulation of the 1% and now government begins to question the value of a free internet? According to the Guardian Newspaper, he US Congress is considering a bill that could greatly restrict Internet free speech.Then Mayors try to turf protesters into the cold night and out of their prosperity.
Now awareness becomes a swell of thousands of 99% protesters moving through the streets of New York on Nov.17 as Bloomberg and his 1% may become a catalyst for change. This is getting so interesting!
This could become an historical struggle for equal opportunity and free speech? A protest that causes Bloomberg`s sphincter to tighten as the 1% circle their vaults and cry for control.
This is really about hope and opportunity. Too many people without hope equals social unrest as history shows time and again. "We learn from history that we never learn anything from history." Hegel
Sometimes I get sucked into the thought, "this time its different and we are truly fracked ", but then I read another internet account of Occupy and the fire is relit. This really is a powerful code! Open source protest! Keep internet free speech accessible and Occupy the Truth! And the truth is that there is not equal opportunity but that there can be whether they like it or not!
"Occupy all governments with the code of equal opportunity for you and I"
