We will never change government policy if we do not specify exactly what policies need to be changed and how to change them. At the same time, taking a particular stand can limit open dialogue and alienate those with opposing views.
A possible solution might be creating a web page where individuals can indicate their support for a particular policy. Items receiving the most support would move to the top of the list and become "policies receiving the most support" rather than "policies of the occupy movement." In this way all those following the movement, including the media, would become aware of the most practical solutions we can come up with. This would provide specific objectives we could work toward achieving in terms of policy change.
The "voting" pages could be part of the forum, located in a "proposed policies" area. Individuals could post a short statement defining a suggested policy in a clear and precise manner. Beneath the statement a check box could appear next to "I support this policy." Policies receiving the most support would move toward the top of the page. More details supplied by the person posting should be available via a "more info" link, with that page being a forum where people can discuss the pros and cons of the proposed policy.
A similar area could be created for "political actions" where strikes, boycotts and other actions could be proposed.
If all the Occupy sites could link to the most popular proposals it could help unify the movement worldwide.
