70 percent of people realize we are on wrong path.
Only 8 percent thinks their congress person listens to constituents
And more people don't believe electoral systems are fair
What is mechanism for people to design solutions?
The government won't let the people get together to figure out a strategy, through crack down on occupy. We should reignite occupy, even if just in day hours in parks, to strategize effective plans and maintain pressure that can fix our problems.
The web doesn't seem to be a good strategy designer either. I was sure someone would design apps to unite the people in a strategies to get back the government from out of touch elites.
I don't think the web wil unite people effectively. It needs to be live people joining something with tangible plans of action.
If not in political realm, what?
Keep the dialog going at monsanto marches, plan more events, meetings....
I'd recomend doing more at parks, keeping this upbeat and positive, family oriented.
The Chris hedges debate was thought provoking. Thanks Thrasymaque for posting.
