    Exclamation Occupy wall st

    Have you heard about this? It's a pretty global movement...
    Updated news on Occupy Wall St

    LiveStream Video footage from New York:

    Principles of Solidarity:
    On September 17, 2011, people from all across the United States of America and the world came to protest the blatant injustices of our times perpetuated by the economic and political elites. On the 17th we as individuals rose up against political disenfranchisement and social and economic injustice. We spoke out, resisted, and successfully occupied Wall Street. Today, we proudly remain in Liberty Square constituting ourselves as autonomous political beings engaged in non-violent civil disobedience and building solidarity based on mutual respect, acceptance, and love. It is from these reclaimed grounds that we say to all Americans and to the world, Enough! How many crises does it take? We are the 99% and we have moved to reclaim our mortgaged future.

    Through a direct democratic process, we have come together as individuals and crafted these principles of solidarity, which are points of unity that include but are not limited to:

    Engaging in direct and transparent participatory democracy;
    Exercising personal and collective responsibility;
    Recognizing individuals’ inherent privilege and the influence it has on all interactions;
    Empowering one another against all forms of oppression;
    Redefining how labor is valued;
    The sanctity of individual privacy;
    The belief that education is human right; and
    Endeavoring to practice and support wide application of open source.
    We are daring to imagine a new socio-political and economic alternative that offers greater possibility of equality. We are consolidating the other proposed principles of solidarity, after which demands will follow.

    I don't know man. I guess that's what you get for calling Obama a socialist.

    How many crises does it take, it's the 3rd huge one after 189? and 1929.

    But, yeah, the points are sympathetic.

    But that's not something new, Ratm did it at least 10 years ago. And look how they ended up.

    Oh man, open-source people are to the left-wing what atheists are to a pleasant discussion. (If you think that's unfair, count the number of Christian bots in the Dawkins vs Apologists thread. )

    Also, I dont think direct democracy sounds incredibly fun but otherwise I suppose this is interesting enough. Actually it's a pity that their principle program really is rather disconnected from a reality most would recognize.

    ...because I didn't remember. Decade was wrong too. So, it's 1873 and 1929-1931.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/28/op...28krugman.html You can read about them. I like the guy. We are in the 2nd V of W. Now, I think I understand why are money sometimes printed out of nowhere. I think they should be pulled off later though. Like Roubini said, everybody saves the money in a crisis and then it doesn't work.

    Also, to add to the discussion. It's cheap to hinder the economy even more in the crisis. They should try harder and win it seriously, otherwise they look like a bunch of hippies.

    99% to 1%. It's not like everyone from 99% is unhappy. They can get good jobs from 1%.
