[Strategy!:] The Occupy Movement Needs a Good Fight (tags)

The Occupy Movement Needs a Good Fight "Power concedes nothing without a demand." - Frederick Douglass In a movement based on general anger about inequality and the domination of big banks, it becomes difficult to focus the rage into something concrete. For many Occupiers, being concrete is a mere distraction, meant to shift the movement into something 'less radical,” since their targets — big banks and inequality — are at the root of the problem. Why mess with the tree when you could go for the roots? But, as any tree-removal worker will tell you, the tree comes first, then the roots. The roots cannot be the immediate goal of the Occupy movement because pulling them out would require tens of millions of hands, and the vast majority of working people are not yet directly involved in the movement, though many of them are giving approving nods from a distance. Bringing these more distant people into the movement requires they be given a good reason to join. And although a general anti-1% sentiment sounds appealing to the 99%, a struggle to win worker-friendly demands can help pull these people into the streets.

Global Warming Accelerates While US Backpedals (tags)

Two recent studies have shocked the world in regard to global warming. A phenomenon that was to happen “possibly in our lifetime” has evolved into a threat capable of transforming the world in ten years time. A recent, extensive study of the northern polar ice caps released by climate expert Professor Peter Wadham, concluded that the Arctic Ocean would be “mostly” ice free in 10 years during the summer months. This study is a stunning compliment to research done by NASA at the South Pole, which noted that ice sheets have been losing 30 feet a year in thickness since 2003. The research concluded that the rate of melting is accelerating, creating a “runaway effect.”

From the Past Can you Hear These Chimes Ringing? (tags)

In our short lives, your short experiences of being alive, as what you could recall experience- with the events that culminate who you are in life- are you really ready for the things that are about to happen? The quaking earth below you shakes, and you know this. The conception of the Windchime Project was just a foreshadow of what was going to happen, and the barriers of your world are going to crumble heavily down upon you. From the day your born, into this world of economy, of monetary belief systems, of this destructive civilization, you are conditioned. But obviously I think you would know that. Could there be a critique of anarchists who find themselves trying to struggle with the economy like everyone else, so situated on just getting a job and not casting aside the actual chains that have entombed us to a mere pile of flesh and bone? Or mostly the fact of arriving food issues and the fact that gardening permaculture and sustainable alternatives aren't being concentrated on? And lastly moving beyond the typical models of food not bombs, free markets, identity propaganda and image fashion of bandannas? or mostly TAKING THIS SERIOUSLY. and mostly, this movement, this life of ours, this idea of challenging the powers that smash our ribs on these iron gears... needs maturity, needs to understand that pop culture, subculture needs to die a horrible death. Needs to be strung upon a banner, it's entrails hanging so as not to make the same mistakes, if not to be so descriptive. When our friends die, when our hearts cry, when our fists are smashed my batons or we have been shot by the pigs and thier unrelenting assualt. ask yourself, how serious you really are. -A Most Concerned Wild One

This is What Rush Limbaugh Thinks About People Who use Drugs (tags)

Rush will rant on for sure, after proclaiming that sessions with Jerry Falwell have recommitted him to Christ. He will be “reborn.” He will “triumph over adversity.” He will be embraced by Bush as a true patriot and the betrayal of America will continue, leaving in its wake a trail of brazen lies and the ancient ruins of democracy.

We need jobs. We need new jobs. (tags)

I'm not the president or a presidential candidate (and I don't play one on television) but it seems to me to create new jobs, this country needs to create new industries. A tax cut to maintain the current status quo is just not going to change anything. If the demand for existing products isn't there now, why should the demand increase with a tax cut? How many new cars and television sets can any one person buy? Americans just can't keep buying more of what we already have. We've got to get a move on.
